What a terrible league

By | August 16, 2006

Do you realize that the National League could realistically have only one team over .500 in each division? Currently the Mets are the only one in the East, the Cardinals and Reds in the Central, and the Dodgers and Padres in the West (and the D-Backs, if they can pull off this extra-inning game they are playing right now). The Reds, Padres, and D-Backs are not what you would call “good teams,” so it wouldn’t be surprising to see any or all of them finish under .500. That would be a perfect illustration of this year’s NL, where you have one good team (the Mets) and a lot of decent to lousy teams. But hey, it might be the perfect year for my Dodgers to get hot at the end, because they could stay hot enough to roll into the World Series and get mopped by an AL team.
