Here is the top 5 from the Week 12 Power Rankings from the NY Daily News: Phillies, Yankees, Red Sox, Brewers, Giants.

Power Ranking (Pizza Toppings): Sausage (of course), Buffalo Chicken, Barbecue Chicken, Pepperoni, Bacon
Power Ranking (Words that end in 'ist'): Nudist, Perfectionist, Therapist, Chemist, Cellist
Power Ranking (Things I have more disdain for than Power Rankings): Jonathan Papelbon, Sacrifice bunting, Rebecca Black, Blacked out MLB games, The smug hippo

Injury updates on the walking wounded from LoHud:

Jeter took 30 swings in batting practice. He fielded seven grounders on the grass before rain forced a stop..."Everything’s good," Jeter said. "Steps in the right direction."

Right-hander Bartolo Colon, sidelined with a strained right hamstring, threw four innings of 15-pitches each in a simulated game.

AJ Burnett was the first Yankee to strike out 4 batters in a single inning, but it was actually the second time in his career that he had accomplished the feat.  I am thoroughly un-surprised.

Something tells me Bob Raissman is not a huge fan of John and Suz doing the radio broadcast.  While I'm somewhat luke-warm on the pair, I won't pretend not to have enjoyed the line about "Waldman correcting Magoo's vision gaffes."
