Yankees and Nationals bookend final installment of 2009 campaign

Publish date:

The last week of the season means the last edition of the Power Rankings. This week features obvious choices at the top (the likely eight playoff teams) and bottom (back to the cellar, Nats), and a slew of playoff-bound teams who aren't exactly playing confidence-inspiring baseball heading into the postseason. It also includes a sci-fi crazy pitcher who may be a Game 1 postseason starter, a SWAT team demonstration, Stephen Colbert and Jon Stewart clips and one last diatribe by a Windy City manager. See everyone in the postseason.
