  6. Seattle                         36      57          20

* PRB Commissioner’s Administrative Decision:  With full 162 game schedule, 1/2 game finishes are impossible.  This parodox was resolved by expanding DET 4  NYY 3 2011 season record to  DET 10 NYY 8; which is the same winning percentage (.571) over 18 game PRB schedule.  I then awarded Detroit the 1/2 game needed to “balance out” the schedule.
