Red Sox Hold Steady At No. 2 In SB Nation's MLB Power Rankings

Another week, and another No. 2 spot for the Red Sox in the SB Nation MLB Power Rankings.

As the Red Sox continue to ride high, the inevitable has struck: injuries. Dustin Pedroia and Victor Martinez have both been put on the disabled list, with Clay Buchholz also suffering an injury over the weekend. With Pedroia and Martinez out, the Red Sox will need to fight to stay alive near the top of the AL East. Buchholz isn't expected to miss any time, but timetables for the returns on Pedroia and Martinez are more significant and damaging. The Sox lost a series in Colorado this week, but thanks to a Pedroia "Laser Show," the Sox managed one win. The Red Sox's next 11 games are against the AL East, minus the Yankees.

It should be interesting to see where Boston ranks after a week or two of playing without Pedroia and Martinez.

Worth noting: the top three teams are all from the A.L. East -- Yankees, Sox and Rays -- with the Blue Jays giving the best division in baseball four of the top-14 teams.
