Phillies continue to get ZERO RESPECT from MLB.com Writers in the latest World Series Player Power Rankings
What in the world is happening with MLB.com writers? In the latest sign of disrespect towards the Philadelphia Phillies, these writers, who apparently don’t watch postseason baseball, released the following Power Rankings ahead of Game 1 tomorrow night in Houston.
MLB.com Power Rankings for Phillies vs Astros World Series
Bryce Harper – No. 1
Okay so yeah, obviously Bryce Harper is number one. There’s no issue there and honestly, it’s not even up for debate at this point. The reigning NL MVP slashed .400/.400/.850 with a 1.250 OPS in the NLCS. Harper had eight hits, three doubles, two home runs, and five RBI in 20 at-bats during the series against San Diego.
Easy number one.
Yordan Alvarez – No. 2
I don’t really have a problem with Yordan Alvarez at number two either. Although there’s an easy case that he should also be lower on the list. Outside of his monstrous game-winning, walk-off home run against the Mariners in the ALDS, he’s been the definition of average for the Astros in the postseason. Alvarez is slashing .241/.371/.517 with a .888 OPS. He has two home runs, two doubles, and 8 RBI over 7 playoff games.
Skeptical number two.
Jose Altuve – LMAO
Now we have arrived at the CRAZIEST NUMBER THREE maybe ever listed in any Power Rankings.
Jose Altuve is downright embarrassing and everyone at MLB.com should lose their jobs and be forced to go cover Cricket in India for at least 5 years before returning to the states to cover America’s past time.
The biggest cheater in Major League Baseball is slashing a PATHETIC .094/.171/.125 with a .296 OPS. He has THREE HITS in 37 at-bats this postseason and only ONE EXTRA BASE HIT to go along with ZERO RBI.
Sure. Power Rank Em at NUMBER THREE you absolute MORONS.
Cheater Alex Bregman – No. 4
Alex Bregman hasn’t been good at baseball since he stopped listening to trashcans and getting off by zapping himself every time a 4-seamer was coming his way. Sure, he’s slashing .333/.375/.600 with a .975 OPS but that’s hardly worth a No. 4 ranking when players like Rhys Hoskins aren’t listed. Just one home run and 4 RBI in the ALCS?
Justin Verlander – No. 5
We’re not done yet. Next up you have Justin Verlander at number four, who is just 1-0 with a 6.30 ERA this postseason in just 10 innings pitched. Give me a fucking break already.
Oh Look, Phillies Players!
From there, you have Zack Wheeler, Aaron Nola, and JT Realmuto which all should be ranked above the Astros listed above.
Kyle Tucker? – Drug Test The MLB.com Writers
At number nine, you have Kyle Tucker from the Astros. Let’s check his stats out this postseason. Tucker is slashing .214/.313/.321 with a .634 OPS. He has one home run and one RBI. LOL. Honestly this shit looks like a parody account but I assure you, it came directly from MLB.com.
Kyle Schwarber – No. 10
Kyle Schwarber clocks in at number ten on the list. Insulting.
Not Even Listed…?
Players like Rhys Hoskins, Seranthony Dominguez, Jose Alvarado, or hell, even the ALCS MVP Jeremy Pena were NOT listed in the MLB.com Power Rankings.

Drew, why do you care what baseball writers say? Make your own rankings and lets see what you come up with. Besides, YOU’RE a baseball writer. You might not be in their click but then again, would you really want to be in a club that would have you as a member?
And easy on the cuss words, your mother doesn’t like that.
Good Luck in the Series.
