    1. [​IMG] (7-1)

    Frisk has his team out to a blazing hot start at 7-1 with his only loss coming to the rival Dodgers. With solid pitching and a rejuvenated Todd Helton, this team will be hard to cool down if such a skilled owner running this talented team.

    2. [​IMG] (4-0)

    Arguably the #1 team in the league, Moon remains undefeated and has already beaten the Rockies in a tight 2-0 game. However with a such a small sample size of games, it's hard to justify them as the #1 team in TBL. This pitching staff has given up only 1 run per game, so if they continue with the trend they should see themselves the #1 spot in no time.

    3. [​IMG] (6-1)

    Jacoby Ellsbury fuels this high octane offense. Sooner or later, owners will realize that Ellsbury intends to steal 2nd, 3rd, and home every chance he gets. And with that type of speed, why not? It doesn't hurt that the pitching staff is giving up less than a run per game, the best in TBL.

    4. [​IMG] (5-1)

    Veteran owner BigSmooth has his Tigers in 1st place yet again, and doesn't appear to be slowing down. With Miguel Cabrera, Magglio Ordonez, and Victor Martinez in the middle of the lineup, they have accounted for 14 runs and 13 RBIs, and they are each batting over .333.

    5. [​IMG] (6-2)

    The CPU controlled KC Royals have been using the cheat codes to defeat opponents, and if they don't lay off the cheese soon, Commissioners Pepper, Scikotic, and Knight may have to remove this owner from the league. Beware of this team.

    6. [​IMG] (3-0)

    Cliff Lee already threw a perfect game, and Bl0nde seems to be a tough game for everyone in the NL East. Standing atop the East in a deadlock with the Marlins, this team has all the players to make a strong push for a playoff run.

    7. [​IMG] (3-0)

    Half CPU/Half Jam. This Marlins team has great ownership in the veteran Jam. Now if he can only get online so he can make it to the game, this time has the ability to go places. Josh Johnson may be his favorite weapon, but he surely knows how to handle the bat as well.

    8. [​IMG] (5-2)

    Newly acquired Adrian Beltre has been solid for the Rangers, but they may miss the bat of Michael Young, who was lost in a blockbuster trade to the Twins. Jim Thome and Michael Cuddyer will try to fill that void. If the pitching can remain consistant as they have been, this team will continue to scrap out wins and atop the AL West.

    9. [​IMG] (5-3)

    Riptides has taken the NL Central by storm with opportune hitting and great pitching. He's run into a bit of recent struggles against the Rockies, Nats, and Pirates, but his body of work early in the season still has him atop the division. Aramis Ramirez and Carlos Pena solidfy this mediocre lineup with a strong start to the season. If they run cold, the rest of the lineup will need to step up. Pena also has a tendency to whiff or tear the cover off the ball.

    10. [​IMG] (3-2)

    We weren't quite sure what the Nats owner Knight was thinking when he skipped Strasburg's opening day start against the Giants, but they seemed to have recovered well. There is no standout player in their lineup thus far, but they find ways to win the game, much like the 2010 Champion Giants did. Their pitching will need to anchor this team if someone doesn't give this lineup a jolt.

    11. [​IMG] (4-3)

    The Cardinals started off the season with a bang, but have recently leveled out. They lost a tough game to the Astros in Houston and against the Rival Cubs at Wrigley. However, they do have Albert Pujols who leads TBL with 4 HRs. Chris Carpenter has 2 wins under his belt, but there isn't much backing them right now as Wainwright has struggled and the Cards lineup has been inconsistent.

    12. [​IMG] (4-3)

    Merenguito rounds out the top of the rankings with a very impressive start to the season. His team has all the talent in the world, but he's been questioning his abilities since day 1. Looks like that talent is finally starting to come around as the Yankees are on the heels of the Red Sox who got out to an impressive start. If the Bombers continue to hit HRs, they will win games. The pitching though has been an issue. They need to sort that out, and fast.

    What happened???

    ??. [​IMG] (1-3)

    TBL Spring Champ Pepper had the best track record coming into the TBL, but has failed to deliver so far. We're questioning whether or not this is a slump, or if his team isn't as good as advertised. Our money is on a quick rebound and a showing into the next installment of Top 12 in TBL's Power Rankings.
