MLB Power Rankings: 08/28/2012

The Rangers and Nationals flip back this week and the Cardinals make a jump after taking 2 of 3 from the Reds; on the flip side, the Astros are still at the bottom.

Like aways, these power rankings take into account record, run differential, and farm system; record weighs the most in the score and the farm system weighs the least.
