Yahoo Power Rankings: San Diego Padres will finish ahead of the Seattle Mariners

"Hold on, son. Just keep your stuff where it is." "No, blue. You don't understand. I'm not really going to make him do it, it's a symbolic gesture, but I have to pull it out to really make it count."

In the only race that matters, Tim Brown, Yahoo's Y! Expert has his latest MLB Power Rankings up. The Padres move up two spots from 21st to 19th, and Tim Brown has this to say about our beloved team:

19. San Diego Padres (71-78; Previous: 21) – Padres masher takes lead in NL RBI, leaving rest of league's sluggers to chase Headley.

Is there a double entendre that I'm missing there?

In any case, even more important than the Padres sliding into the top two thirds of the league is the fact that the Mariners dropped a few spots.

20. Seattle Mariners (70-80; Previous: 18) – Notorious hacker Miguel Olivo walked three times Wednesday night, figures he's now covered for all of next season.

Which means that, with less than a dozen games left in the season, the Padres are likely to hang on and defeat the hated Mariners in the Yahoo Power Rankings Battle 2012. And in the end, isn't that all we're here for?
