4. Salem Warlocks (6)
Power Index: 116.675 Last week: 110.375
Comment: 9-1 in the last week have propelled Salem up the index. Currently they hold a wild card spot. To maintain they will need to improve their slumping hitting

5. Florida Swamp Grass (2)
Power Index: 116.25 Last week: 118.75
Comment: Division is wrapped up. They can start resting starters and just coast into the playoffs.

Power Index: 105.5 Last week: 95.75

Comment: 3 games back in the WIld Card but the Index has them in the Playoffs. They have slipped some since last check. The key match up comes at season's end when Tucson takes on Vancouver. Winner should be in the Playoffs

7. Vancouver Vikings (7)
Power Index: 104.125 Last week: 102.625

8. Charlotte Silverbacks (4)
Power Index: 103.5 Last week: 110.875
