MLB Power Rankings: New York Yankees No. 2 In MLB.com Rankings

The American League East-leading New York Yankees are No. 1 in this week's MLB Power Rankings from MLB.com. That is equal to where the Yankee were a week ago in the MLB.com rankings. The New York Mets are No. 11, according to MLB.com.

Here is what MLB.com said about the Yankees, who are behind only the top-ranked Texas Rangers:

The Bronx Bombers used a key home run from Robinson Cano to put the cherry on a balanced attack, and some might think they deserve the top spot in this poll simply for getting to [R.A.] Dickey, who had been historically good of late. More key to the Yanks' fortunes have been the settling of Phil Hughes and Ivan Nova into a solid rotation, the successful return of Andy Pettitte and Rafael Soriano's stellar work since taking over the closer's role.

Here is MLB.com's take on the Mets:

R.A. Dickey on Sunday proved even power knuckleballers are human, but that doesn't mean he won't pitch in the All-Star Game, and it certainly doesn't mean his Mets are out of the October conversation. The Amazin's are 39-34 and in second place in the division. Now they'll see if Bobby Parnell can handle the closing job with Frank Francisco on the disabled list.
