Fangraphs Position Power Rankings - Pirates Exclusive

All right so Fangraphs had a series of posts over the last week rankings teams by position. Unsurprisingly the Pirates didn't do so well, having only two positions in the top ten and having several down near the very bottom. I figured I'd copy all the tables so the Pirates' rankings and ZIPS and WAR projections could be in one neat and tidy spot. Hopefully this looks ok, it does in the preview.

Because I forgot at first, here's the post on Fangraphs that has a link to each Position Rankings post as well as each team's Top 15 Prospects post. There's also an Intro link that gives an overview of what the rankings represent.
