and that's why baseball's kind of dumb.

you look at any other sport, a division leader has a .700ish record. in baseball (last season) the best team was under .600

a GREAT team wins less than 2/3 of its games? it's dumb

I see it as showing how difficult baseball is. And it's still better than the NBA where not just one but multiple teams with losing records actually get into the playoffs.

I LOVE the parity of baseball. If you don't like parity, watch basketball, where .200 and .700 teams are common in the same year.

WELL WHY WOULD ANYONE WANT PARITY IN SPORTS?

 

I mean clearly what they should be doing is half the league in the playoffs with two dominant teams and the playoffs having no value until the finals.

 

*cough* NBA *cough*

 

We've had this England, in football/soccer for years now:

 

English soccer titles won since 1992: Manchester United (13), Arsenal (3), Chelsea (3), Blackburn Rovers (1), Manchester City (1).

 

That's like the Yankees winning the World Series (or at least the AL) nearly every year, with a couple of wins for the Red Sox and Cardinals thrown in. Oh and the Marlins and the Dodgers once.

 

In Scotland it's even crazier:

 

Scottish soccer titles win since 1985: Rangers (17), Celtic (12).

 

Now you may think only two teams play for the title in Scotland each year, but that's not true - there are 40 in the league, but only two teams have won it in the last 29 years. Can you imagine the World Series being the same two teams every year for almost 30 years?

 

And yes, it kind of sucks.
