So, I checked Yahoo! Sports to get the update on spring training and noticed that the standings were listed as follows (screenshot in the “Complete Standings” link):
|AL Spring Training Standings|
|Chi White Sox||4||6||.400|
Now, I can appreciate a conspiracy to put the Yankees at the bottom, but isn’t there something a little fishy about those rankings? Seattle is 1-7. Why are they listed above the Twins and Yankees? And why are the Angels ranked first, even though both Cleveland and Toronto have better winning percentages? Even the National League standings are a little off – St. Louis should be 2nd, not 5th.
Of course, it’s spring training, so who really cares, other than big math nerds like me?
