Power Rankings! Week Four

The easy thing about Power Rankings this week? Just scroll down to the bottom to find the Astros:

Astros - 30th
"After sweeping the Pirates to get to 8-10 eight days ago, the Astros ceased to play the Pirates and have now dropped six straight to the Reds and Braves. In those six losses, they only cracked the two-run barrier once. Never base an entire evaluation of a team on one series against the Pirates."

TSN Canada:
Astros - 29th
"Not good when the corner outfielders -- Carlos Lee and Hunter Pence -- have combined for a .236 on-base percentage."

The Sporting News:
Astros - 30th
The ever-streaky Astros' six-game skid has them back at the bottom.

Astros - 29th
During their current six-game losing streak, the Astros are averaging two runs per game against teams that have ERAs of 5.42 (Reds) and 4.10 (Braves).
