The Baltimore Sun MLB power rankings for the week of July 18

The Orioles rank fifth in The Baltimore Sun's most recent MLB power rankings.

With apologies to anyone who feels one is necessary, the Baltimore Sun MLB power rankings return after a two-week hiatus to reveal that things are pretty much as we left them.
 
The Cubs are no longer the runaway team, but they’re still the best one. Either side of the All-Star break also seems to include a nasty road trip for every team, so no one is playing terribly well at this point.
 
But the power rankings are back, and teams’ standings in these (if not the actual standings) will go a long way toward handicapping their futures this year and deciding how to approach the trade deadline. As always, these rankings are completely subjective, yet objectively correct.
