ESPN MLB Power Rankings: May 2

1 (1) Phillies 18-9 Roy Halladay has allowed only one home run in 46.1 innings. He also threw an amazing 18 straight strikes to begin his last start, a complete-game, 2-1 win over the Mets on Saturday. -- ESPN.com
2 (2) Yankees 16-9 The Yankees went just 4-3 last week, with the offense missing plenty of chances in the losses, but the rotation turned in five quality start (two of them coming from Ivan Nova). A.J. Burnett also had his best start of the season, and Bartolo Colon now has a 2.77 ERA in 26 IP. -- Brien Jackson: It's About The Money
3 (6) Indians 19-8 The Indians just completed their fifth series sweep; to put this in perspective, the Indians only had four series sweeps during the entire 2010 season. Despite losing two starters to the DL (Mitch Talbot and Carlos Carrasco), the Indians set a team record for victories in April (18) and just tied their longest home winning streak since 1996 (13). -- Stephanie Liscio: It's Pronounced "Lajaway"
4 (3) Rockies 17-9 Despite awful starts by Ubaldo Jimenez and Carlos Gonzalez and a very uncharacteristic 7-6 record at home, the Rockies have already won 17 games and hold their largest NL West lead since the summer of 1995. Imagine how good they'll be when they play up to their potential. -- Logan Burdine: Blake Street Bulletin
5 (4) Rangers 16-12 Through his first four starts of the season, the Rangers' Matt Harrison allowed just six earned runs in 28.2 innings. In his two starts since then? Try 11 earned runs in only 4.2 innings. -- Joey Matschulat: Baseball Time In Arlington
6 (5) Marlins 17-9 Josh Johnson has a 0.88 ERA in 41 innings pitched while striking out 39 and giving up just 18 hits. He's the nastiest pitcher in the big leagues. -- The Common Man: The Platoon Advantage
7 (15) Rays 15-13 Another good stretch of games has taken the Rays all the way from 1-8 to a winning record. -- Mark Heilig: The Ray Area
8 (9) Cardinals 16-12 The Cardinals continue their offensive surge with a .370 OBP for the week, as they won two of three from the Astros and Braves but did lose third baseman David Freese. -- Matt Philip: Fungoes
9 (7) Angels 16-12 They're off Jered Weaver and Dan Haren's shoulders and have kept on winning, going 4-2 last week despite only one win from those two starters. Second baseman Howie Kendrick is on fire, reaching base at least twice five out of the past six games, and is now hitting .300/.384/.545. -- Bill Parker: The Platoon Advantage
10 (8) Reds 14-14 Though the offense has been struggling, Joey Votto continues to be, well, Joey Votto. He's reached base in every game this season and is hitting .357/.492/.602. Can you say "MVP"? -- Chad Dotson: Redleg Nation
11 (12) Brewers 13-14 Dropping two of three to the hapless Astros hurts, but sitting within 2.5 games of first place with the return of Zack Greinke coming this week is definitely a workable position. -- Jack Moore: Disciples of Uecker
12 (11) Giants 13-14 The Giants are currently tied for 14th in the NL in runs scored (99); the loss of Pablo Sandoval for four to six weeks with a broken hamate bone only aggravates the run-scoring issue more in San Francisco. -- Chris Quick: Bay City Ball
13 (17) Braves 14-15 I don't even know where to start. First Roger McDowell, then Derek Lowe. Now we have first basemen laying down sacrifice bunts and not even a single .300 hitter on the team. Thankfully, the negativity has yet to get to the starting staff, which is currently third in the league in ERA (3.13). -- Kevin Orris: Capitol Avenue Club
14 (20) Blue Jays 13-15 Bandboxes in Arlington and the Bronx provide many "false positives" for slumping players, but two opposite-field home runs in a week for Adam Lind (three HRs total) is reason to celebrate for Jays fans and the often-stranded Jose Bautista. -- Drew Fairservice: Ghostrunner On First
15 (16) Dodgers 14-15 Identical twins Andre Ethier and Matt Kemp have each reached base 56 times in 125 plate appearances (.448 OBP). -- Jon Weisman: Dodger Thoughts
16 (10) Royals 15-13 Royals starting pitchers finished April with a 5.14 ERA. The bullpen posted a 3.51 ERA. -- Craig Brown: Royals Authority
17 (13) Red Sox 12-15 Just when things started to look up, the offense went cold again. Having scored an average of only 2.5 runs per game this past week, the team should consider itself lucky to get two wins. Can the Red Sox take advantage of another four-game series against the Angels this week? -- Troy Patterson: Fire Brand of the American League
18 (18) Athletics 14-14 Conor Jackson is hitting .298/.375/.439 in 63 plate appearances, easily the best hitter on the team so far. With David DeJesus scuffling (.222/.297/.256), Jackson could find his name in the lineup more often as the A's search for offense. -- Dan Hennessey: Baseballin' On A Budget
19 (24) Orioles 13-13 Rookie left-hander Zach Britton is an impressive 5-1 with a 2.63 ERA in six starts. He's allowed one run or fewer in four of the six outings. -- ESPN.com
20 (14) Tigers 12-16 Back-to-back sweeps, first to the Mariners then to the Indians, have left the Tigers reeling. Free-agent prize Joaquin Benoit surrendered six earned runs in two-thirds of an inning this week and was tagged for two of the losses against the Tribe. -- Mike McClary: The Daily Fungo
21 (21) Nationals 13-14 Jason Marquis outdueled Tim Lincecum for his third win of the season on Friday, one more than all of last year. Marquis' fast start is not a fluke, as he's 20th in the NL in WHIP and 13th in xFIP, with no worrying peripheral stats. -- Ruffington Killian: Nationals Baseball
22 (19) Cubs 12-15 Alfonso Soriano's 10 home runs is a new team record April. If only someone else on the team were hitting home runs. -- Joe Aiello: View from the Bleachers
23 (29) Mariners 13-16 The Mariners rattled off a five-game winning streak, thanks to great pitching and defense and offense from Ichiro Suzuki, Justin Smoak and Miguel Olivo, in particular. Seemingly toast a week ago, Seattle now sits just 3.5 games back of the AL West-leading Rangers and Angels. -- Jon Shields: Pro Ball NW
24 (22) White Sox 10-19 Now losers of 15 of their last 18 games and trailing Cleveland by a full 10 games, any White Sox turnaround will likely depend heavily on resurgences from Alex Rios (.155/.235/.223) and Adam Dunn (.171/.308/.316). -- Bill Parker: The Platoon Advantage
25 (28) Mets 12-16 Though the Mets finished April 11-16, there is hope for their fans: The last three times the Mets had a losing record in April, the club has followed it with a winning record in May. -- Joe Janish: Mets Today
26 (27) Diamondbacks 12-15 I say this as a frustrated fantasy owner: Don't be worried about Kelly Johnson (.180/.255/.320). His .227 BABIP will right itself soon enough. -- The Common Man: The Platoon Advantage
27 (25) Pirates 13-15 The Pirates are going to try to solve the riddle of Brandon Wood, who is vying for the title of worst hitter in baseball history with his 23 OPS+. Best of luck. -- The Common Man: The Platoon Advantage
28 (23) Twins 9-18 The Twins have dropped six in a row, by an average margin of almost seven runs per game. They are in full meltdown mode. -- Nick Nelson: Nick's Twins Blog
29 (26) Padres 11-17 The Padres finished April with 72 runs scored, their lowest total for a full month in a non-strike season since they scored 64 in July 1991. -- Geoff Young: Ducksnorts
30 (30) Astros 11-17 The good news: The Astros' series win over the Brewers already matches their April series win total. The bad news: The Astros won one series in April. -- Austin Swafford: Austin's Astros 290 Blog

We got him! It is soooo good to say that WE got him. Americans, the United States, the leaders of the free world. May he not rest in peace, but pay for each and every innocent life he took with him. This country is so great to see when we unite as one and very powerful.
Now, lets get some cheaper gas prices!!!!!

Ohio State's Bell suspended for 2011 season for rules violation

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- Ohio State has confirmed that linebacker Dorian Bell has been suspended for the 2011 season for a violation of team rules.
Bell, a redshirt sophomore from Monroeville, Pa., was expected to play since the Buckeyes lost starters Ross Homan and Brian Rolle off last year's team.
The 6-foot-1, 225-pounder played in eight games last season, totaling nine tackles. Ohio State officials did not specify what rules were broken.
The Buckeyes will already be without five players for the first five games for accepting improper benefits, with a sixth - linebacker Jordan Whiting - missing the opener for the same reason. In addition, coach Jim Tressel will sit out the first five games for failing to report his knowledge of the players' actions.
