With Sony’s MLB 12: The Show releasing on March 6th, we’ve received a sneak peak at some of their team rankings, thanks to our friends at Operation Sports. They’ve ranked every Major League Baseball team from 1-3o in Hitting, Pitching, Defense and Overall. The defending World Champion St.Louis Cardinals took a bit of a hit in the game with their loss of Albert Pujols. The Cardinals rank #6 Overall and #8 in Hitting this year. The Miami Marlins‘ strong offseason has pushed them to #13 Overall and #5 in Pitching. Check out the complete rankings below.
