Are the Fish picking on weaker teams?


Recommended Posts

Something that has been bothering me is that people, whether it is fans of other teams or "experts", are claiming that we are going to start failing because we are only beating "weak teams". So I did some research and put together these numbers.

 

 

These are the teams we have a winning record against:

Team	  Record   PCT
+--------+--------+-----+
Brewers	18-19  .486
Padres	 14-24  .368
Braves	 18-17  .514
Pirates	17-19  .472
Nationals  15-23  .395

Now here are their records without the games against the Fish:

Team	  Record   PCT
+--------+--------+-----+
Brewers	17-14  .548
Padres	 13-22  .371
Braves	 16-14  .533
Pirates	15-15  .500
Nationals  14-15  .482

We don't beat weak teams, we make teams weak.

what the heck do ppl want? we're beating weak teams because thats what our schedule says! gosh, it piss me off. give us better teams and guess what we beat them too.

Well, what I am saying, with the assists from factual statistics, is that the teams we have been beating aren't weak at all. They just seem weak because they have had the misfortune of playing us.

Man it is stupid to say that the Marlins are in first because of playing weaker teams, mainly because the first and simplest measure of a good team is their ability to win the games they are supposed to win, and guess what? Not only have the Marlins won those games they steamrolled the teams. Besides winning this games against the "lesser" teams will make the rest of the season easier because it will make the games against the Mets and Phillies to a certain extent less important.

The only real strong case in that list is the Nationals. When the Marlins start playing more games against the Phillies, Mets, Cubs, and Diamondbacks, we'll know once and for all.

 

I'm just going to hold out judgment until then.

 

I'll second that. Also, how many of those teams listed were in last year's post-season? We're still doing great, and winning on the road makes it even better. Still a relatively small sample to use though, but good stuff none the less.

How is that the only strong case? If they hadn't seen us, both the Pirates and the Brewers would be .500+ teams.
