Since Swapping Weavers, We're a .600 Team

Something I should have posted before last night's game, though then I would have been later accused of jinxing: Starting with the game on July 3, 2006, when Jered Weaver finally replaced his brother Jeff in the starting rotation (and, fittingly, beating his always-more-doted-on-by-statheads rival Felix Hernandez), the Angels up until last night's first pitch had gone 282-188. That is exactly .600 baseball, over nearly three years.

Lest any of you snippy little bores toss more accusations of "cherry-picking" at me, the replacement of a replacement-level #5 starter with a potential ace was and is a legitimate shift in a team's composition, as was (about six weeks prior) the replacement of a .200 hitting flameout prospect at catcher with a Mickey Tettleton-type take-n-raker. I have been pointing out the essential .600ness of this ballclub on this site for years now, and will take any bets that we'll finish closer to .600 this year than .500.

Anyway, after last night's horror we're now down to .599 since July 3, 2006. How does that compare in baseball? As Jim Morrison would say, "Pretty good!"

LAA: .599 (282-189)
NYY: .573 (272-203)
BOS: .564 (268-207)
PHI: .562 (264-206)
NYM: .552 (260-211)
LAD: .544 (258-216)
CHC: .537 (251-216)

This calls for a poll!
