  1. You went straight by the records! How about adjusting rankings based on how hot teams are and not just overall record? Lake Elsinore is hot right now and shouldn’t be ranked 10th. I’d also take San Jose No. 1. They’re doing that in the much tougher division than Lancaster

      Maybe next week I’ll be more biased, like you. And Lake Elsinore!? Until the Storm’s recent streak they were so far in the cellar rats were afraid to go there. As far as Lancaster vs. San Jose, tie goes to the champs.

    Lancaster has a much better run differential than San Jose. Plus, San Jose was just swept by Stockton if you want to go based on streakiness.
