The Pennant Race Baseball Look 2010

During the past few seasons, to get the experience of pennant race baseball,   I have been using actual pennant race and tier games to figure out  day-to-day standings.  Let’s take a look at last year’s final standings.

 Since wild card, non-tier, and interleague games don’t count, you will see different game totals for each team.  No problem, the games behind method still works for assigning a team’s place in the standings(Games over and under .500 are what counts). 

Remember, the important thing is to get the feel of how pennant races work during baseball’s tension building long  season.

EAST                               W    L     GB  

  1. Boston              73   41   —
  2. New York        70   40    1
  3. Tampa Bay      61   54    12.5
  4. Detroit              48   42    13
  5. Toronto            50   63    22.5
  6. Cleveland         38   56    25
  7. Kansas City      38   57   25.5
  8. Baltimore          40  72   32

WEST                                 W    L     GB

  1. Texas                   54   43   —
  2. Minnesota         45   36    1 
  3. Los Angeles      53   47    2.5
  4. Seattle                 52   50    4.5
  5. Oakland              47   53     8.5
  6. Chicago               32   43    11

EAST                                   W    L      GB

  1. Philadelphia       69   48   —
  2. Atlanta                 64   54    5.5
  3. Cincinnati            49   44    8
  4. Florida                  60   55    8
  5. Houston                41   47   13.5
  6. Pittsburgh            39   52   17
  7. New York             50   65   18
  8. Washington         40   77   29

WEST                                    W     L     GB

  1. Los Angeles          71   46   —
  2. Colorado                66   49    4
  3. St. Louis                  50  42    8.5
  4. San Francisco       63  55    8.5
  5. Milaukee                 46  47   13
  6. San Diego                57 60   14
  7. Chicago                    42 50   16.5
  8. Arizona                    49 65   20.5 

1st Tier plays 1st; and 2nd Tier plays 2nd Tier.  So this year Boston, New York, Tampa  Bay, and Detroit play only Texas, Minnesota, and Los Angeles from the other division; 

Toronto, Cleveland, Kansas City, and Baltimore play only Seattle, Oakland,and  Chicago;

Philadelphia, Atlanta, Cincinnati, and Florida play only Los Angeles, Colorado, St. Louis, and San Francisco and;

Houston, Pittsburgh, New York, and Washington play only Milwaukee, San Diego, Chicago, and Arizona.

The fact that a team plays most of their games against division pennant rivals increases the possibility of having great season long pennant races.

Next blogs will start to deal with this season’s races.  I look forward to your comment and discussion.

    If what you say is true, there is no reason to take it seriously. There is no truth. Where there is no truth all is false. If it is false, the same applies. There is no need to take it seriously. We live. That is all that matters. The question still needs to be answered: Which is better wild cards or pennant races.
