Beyond the Box Score Power Rankings: Week 18

With the trade deadline having come and now gone, it'll be interesting to see if any of the players a team added ends up having a significant impact down the stretch.

Just as a reminder: some of the things that go into these rankings include runs scored and allowed, run distributions, wOBA, wRC, FIP, xFIP, DRS, UZR, etc., Base Runs, BABIP and HR/FB% adjustments, and our guts.
