Blakeslee Power Rankings

All right, I've been working on some ratings for a while, and here they are. I'll try to publish these every Monday or Tuesday, depending on when the majority of the series' finish. They are a compilation of runs for and against, record, and a strength of schedule component. Then I figure out what an average team would do in the league, and rate each team's season from 0 to 100. For the nerds out there, it is based on a normal distribution of the teams and where they lie on the curve, so a team 1 standard deviation better than the mean would have a rating of 84.1, 2 standard deviations better would have a rating of 97.7, etc...

For reference:
2003 Detroit Tigers: (43-119) 0.19
2001 Seattle Mariners: (116-46) 99.62
