Reds inch up a few spots in latest batch of MLB power rankings


We're now a solid four weeks into the season, and while four weeks is still a relatively small sample size, we're beginning to see the MLB landscape take shape.

After winning seven out of nine, any momentum the Reds had at that point abruptly ended when the Braves handed Bryan Price's club a sweep over the weekend in Atlanta.

Despite the three-game skid to close out the week, the Reds managed to move up three spots in the latest batch of MLB Power Rankings released by ESPN.com on Monday.

Cincy nestled in at No. 16 this week after occupying the No. 19 slot a week ago. The upstart Brewers held their grip on the top overall spot while the pesky Braves ranked second.

As far as the rest of the National League Central Division is concerned, the Cardinals dropped two spots to No. 8, the Pirates experienced the worst drop of any team going from 13th to 24th, and the Cubs inched up one spot to No. 28.
