You may have noticed that I missed a couple weeks of rankings. For last week, I highlighted the first one-third of the season stat categories leaders. That conveniently did not include any Cubbies. And then the Cubbies snapped their ridiculous winning streak! So I’m going to find a way to get around featuring the Cubbies at the top until they are no longer there! Haha! Go Cardinals! This week, I’m ranking the divisions. I averaged the rankings of each of their teams (1st number) and computed the division’s overall winning percentage (2nd number).
1st place: AL East at 9.2 and .542. All the teams in this division are at .500 or better, even the lowly Orioles. That’s pretty impressive.
Can anybody name anyone in this picture?
2nd place: NL Central at 12.3 and .530. Likewise, this division has 4 teams at .500 or better. Maybe we’re not so much the NL Comedy Central this year, eh?
This is Pujols’s reaction to one of the worst strike calls ever.
I’m surprised he didn’t start wailing on the ump with his bat.
You know if Pujols thinks it’s bad, it probably wasn’t a strike.
3rd place: NL East at 14.4 and .505 and 4th place: AL West at 14.5 and .498. Both these divisions would be doing considerably better if they could drop the Washington Nationals and Seattle Mariners, respectively. If each division could drop those dead weights, the AL West would be 1st and the NL East would be 3rd. Boooo, Washington and Seattle. Booooo! Queens of Putrescence! Boooo!
Rob Corddry plays for the Marlins?
They’re happy because they don’t play for the Mariners.
5th place: AL Central at 20.2 and .463. This division is really hurtin’ after the White Sox, which should let them cruise to a victory fairly easily.
I just really enjoyed this picture. Clever.
6th place: NL West at 21.0 and .454. The Dbacks are 5 games above .500. Everybody else stinks.
I’m kind of partial to the red uniforms. Not sure why.
