The third edition of our weekly MLB power rankings is here and we see a familiar face at the top.  But how does the rest of our top ten round out? Let the debate begin.

#1 Philadelphia Phillies

The Phillies lead the league in both wins (15) and shutouts (5). Don’t be surprised if this team continues to own both categories for much of the season. This week the Phillies went 5-2 sweeping the San Diego Padres in the process. Halladay dazzled again on Sunday, striking out 14 and moving to 3-1 on the season.

#2 Texas Rangers

The boys from Arlington had a bounce back week winning 4 of 6 and sweeping the upstart Royals. Michael Young is now hitting a solid .356 as the DH and doing his best Josh Hamilton impression. The whole Rangers lineup is hitting an American League leading .270 while being tied for the second most runs scored (112) in the majors.

#3 Colorado Rockies

The Rockies had a tough week, losing 2 of 3 to both the Giants and the Marlins. Even after a 4 loss week, the Rockies are still 14-7 with a +20 run differential. As long as Tulowitski and Co. can stay healthy, the rotation of Jimenez, De La Rosa, Hammel, Chacin, and Rogers will keep this team in playoff contention all season long.

#4 New York Yankees

The Bombers only played four games this week (3-1) due to rain. Even though they have played a league low 18 games so far, they lead the league in home runs (36). The real point of interest however is the less than stellar recent performances from Mariano Rivera. With 2 blown saves in a row, Yankee fans around the world are praying it’s just a fluke.

#5 Cleveland Indians

Even though the Indians have lost 3 in a row and went 2-4 on the week, they still have a +25 run differential. Grady Sizemore is hitting .357 with two homers in his 7 games so far this season. Should Grady return to his 2007 form, the Indians might just have a chance at a playoff spot

#6 Cincinnati Reds

A less than ideal week saw the Reds lose to Pittsburgh and twice to Arizona. With the starting rotation looking more than a little shaky, Joey Votto has begun his 2011 MVP campaign. He is now hitting .392/.505/.649 on the season and is leading the heavy hitting Reds lineup to a top ten spot in our rankings.

#7 Florida Marlins

With a lineup unlikely to scare any major league pitcher, the Marlins have relied on their own pitching to stay within 1.5 games of the Phillies. Their team ERA of 2.98 is good enough for 3rd in the majors and thanks to a near no-no from Anibal Sanchez, the Marlins are stirring up some conversation in the NL East.

#8 Boston Red Sox

The Red Sox have now won 5 in a row, 8 of their last 10, and have swept the Angels. Is this team finally molding into the team we all thought they would be? The early pitching woes seem to have been a distant memory as the Sox have got 8 innings from Becket, Matsuzaka, and Lackey this past week. If this team is truly starting to find their own, it could mean good things for the Boston faithful.

#9 Kansas City Royals

The Royals have a league leading 30 stolen bases through 22 games and are a solid 12-10 so far. Being swept by the Rangers this week only proved how young the Royals are…and how good Texas is. The Royals starters have allowed the second most hits (223) in the majors which is the last thing a young staff needs to deal with.

#10 St. Louis Cardinals

Ladies and Gentlemen, Albert Pujols has officially woken up. Now with 7 homers and 17 RBI, Pujols is starting to erase his mediocre start. The red hot Lance Berkman continues to surprise as he is now hitting .364 and slugging .712 on the season.

#22 New York Mets

The Mets have now won four in a row and are showing signs of life. Even though they are still only 9-13, each win helps the clubhouse atmosphere. Major improvement is still required for this team to make any significant moves in the standings. On the up side, David Wright seems to have awaken from his early season slumber hitting 3 homers and getting 6 RBI this week.
