Down The Stretch



Only eleven days left of the MLB season, so let's look at some numbers.

NL Central

Cubs - 0 games back, 0 games behind. 0 games against an opponent with a winning record.
Brewers - 0 games back, o games behind. 7 games at home to finish the season.




NL West

Arizona - 1 game ahead. 665 runs scored, 688 runs scored against. No other division leader has this problem. For example, Boston has scored 811 runs and allowed 616.
San Diego - 1 game back, 1.5 games ahead in Wild Card. 7 games on the road to end the season to the before mentioned Brewers, who are good at home.


NL East

NY Mets - 1.5 games ahead. 11 of 12 last games against either Washington or Florida, with 1 game against St. Louis. Last 7 at home.
Philadelphia - 7 games against Washington, last 6 games at home. But here's the number that has mattered: won last 8 games against the Mets.





AL East
Boston - 2.5 games ahead. 0 games against a winning opponent. Haven't played a winning opponent who weren't the Yankees since Aug. 19. Yankees won 5 out of 6 in that stretch.
New York Yankees - 2.5 games back, 4.5 games ahead in WC. Final 11 games played against Baltimore, Toronto and Tampa Bay. They've currently won 2 in a row versus Baltimore, took 2/3 at Toronto, and 1/2 versus Tampa Bay.


AL Central
Cleveland - 6.5 games ahead. 0.5 games back from tying for home field advantage.
Detroit - 6.5 games back, 4.5 games back from WC. 0% chance to win either.


AL West
LA Angels - 8.5 games ahead. 0.5 games back from tying for home field advantage.
Seattle - 8.5 games back, 6.5 games back from WC. 0% chance to win either.
