Can Baseball’s Power Rankings Be Manipulated ? Yep!

Apparently the GHSA can allow baseball’s power rankings to be manipulated simply by teams not playing the games they were supposed to play.   Take this case of the Portal Panthers and the Lanier County Bulldogs.  It’s an interesting scenario how these rankings can be manipulated (whether intentionally or unitentionally) and cost teams chances at the playoffs.   Either changes need to be made on how rankings are calculated in the first place or a different appeals process should be put in place.
