Season 22 Preseason Power Rankings

Spring Training is in full swing for Season 22, so it's time to run those rosters through the magic formula and come up with the Preseason Power Rankings!   At the top of the rankings, just as they were last preseason, is the 2-time defending champions Richmond.  They look to have the roster strength to chase the Three-peat.  Also repeating their preseason ranking from Season 21, at #2 is Chicago.  Wichita gets another high preseason ranking, coming in at #3.  Helena and Boise round out the top 5.   

It's a bit of a surprise to see the top regular season team from last season, New Britain at #16.  Don't think they're done piecing together their offense, but we have to go with what they have now.  They do have tremendous pitching, so look for them to vault up the rankings.  

Here are the complete rankings, good luck to all in Season 22!
