And the Last Place team has a better winning percentage than the First Place Team!
Last night, The New York Mets, 64-60, .516
Defeated the San Diego Padres, 61-63, .492
The National League East and West divisions are unreal. Every team in the East is above 500; every team in the West is below 500.
Can anybody think of a year when something like this has happened? The closest I can remember is 1973. The National League East champ had a winning percentage of 509.
The West is typically pathetic. It is usually the AL West though.
The NL East is just plain tough.
