In week 2 of the MLB season, we began to see some things even out. Some teams that got off to hot starts have started to come back to the mean, while teams that struggled to start have began to pick things up. But, there are some teams that have sustained the strong or poor starts for a number of different reasons. Some are getting players back from injury, while others just may be worse or better than we originally thought.

We are also witnessing history for two franchises; one that is happy with what they are doing and one on the polar opposite side of the spectrum. Without further ado, let’s take a look at the MLB Power Rankings for Week 3.

30. Milwaukee Brewers (2-10) One of the teams that have set a franchise record through the first two weeks of the season, but not in a good way. They have gotten off to the worst start in franchise history, and to make things worse, All-Star outfielder Carlos Gomez is now on the DL with a hamstring injury. Also, nominal ‘ace’ Kyle Lohse continues to get hammered on the mound. They have nothing going for them right now, and it looks like it will be a long season in Milwaukee

29. Miami Marlins (3-10) The Marlins looked like they were going to have a strong week, taking two of three from the Atlanta Braves. But, they then ran into the buzzsaw that was the New York Mets, getting swept in a four-game weekend series. Even though they were swept by the Mets, they fought in every game and didn’t lay down. Giancarlo Stanton also looks to be awakening from his winter slumber, which will help get things going in Miami.
