Power Rankings: Sox at No. 24? Really?

That didn’t take long for the ESPN experts to jump off the Red Sox bandwagon.

Just nine games into the season, the Red Sox -- whom 42 of 45 ESPN pundits picked to reach the Fall Classic -- have dropped all the way to 24th in the latest Power Rankings on ESPN.com.

The Sox, who debuted in the Power Rankings in the No. 7 spot last week after getting swept in Texas, fell 14 spots after a 2-4 week despite taking two of three from the fourth-ranked Yankees. The Rangers are No. 1.

There’s no way the Sox are the 24th-best team in baseball, as the Power Rankings suggest, but where do you think they really belong? Top 10? Top 5? Share your ranking here (SportsNation has them 18th) or in the comments section of this blog entry.
