Yankee and Red Sox fans here on Guam have been beating me up over the fact that our record is a product of a poor division. Yes, the Angels kicked our ass, but that is a fluke. Look at the strength of the divisions.
Every so often I check the strength of the division standings by compiling the W-L records/win percentages. Yeah, throughout this season the AL West has been behind the East.
AL West .530, AL East .529.
