Mid-May 2036 RPI Rankings Dynasty In The Making? The Phillies have won 2 of the last 3 WS and look like the early favorites to win it all in 2036. Eastern Rising: After years of the AL West and AL Central being full of the most dominant MLB teams, the AL East and NL East combine for 8 of the top 13 teams in the RPI Rankings. Home Field Advantage? After having the 2nd best record in the MLB last season, the Chicago Cubs have struggled mightily at home this season(10-15 at home vs 14-5 on the road). After 121 disappointing years, is it time to dump Wrigley Field? Started From The Bottom: The Nationals finished the 2035 RPI Rankings in 30th, but find themselves in 6th early in 2036 despite still having a losing record. Are they a team to look out for once their schedule starts to ease up or will they return to mediocrity? The Usual Suspects? 4 of the 5 AL Playoff teams from 2035 are back in the Top 10, but what happened to Houston? The Astros have a losing record despite having faced the 21st most difficult schedule. This doesn't bode well for the rest of their season.
