    Wins can be a misleading stat. Our start has been pretty weak. We look like we'll probably get passed by.

    This is the clutch hitting you've always dreamed of.

    Even better. It comes with an all-expenses paid trip to Timbuktu.

    Nice comments when the Tigers were leading the division with an 8-4 record. Since then, the starting pitching has been a question mark, relief pitching continues to be suspect, two games where the offense scored only 1 run and the fielders looked like a bunch rookies out there...especially in the outfield. Lets just hope it was just a Tampa thing:sweep: and the can rebound in Minnesota.

    The defense was comical (not in a funny way). If Iglesias doesn't trip over 2nd base last night, we win the game. Today, Avila over-runs a routine pop-up as Norris nearly collides with him. It literally looks like Little League.

    We are still leading the division, by the way....

    More games will be ending later today, but the Tigers (8-7) currently hold a 1/2 game lead over all 4 of the other division rivals (7-7).

    Yep that's the term I was looking for...Little League.....but not just in the field, but what about those 30 strikeouts (by the batters) in three games...:frusty:

    Kind of crazy that the other four in the division have the exact same record: 7-7.

    Assuming each team has a 50% chance of winning a game, what is the probability that 4 teams win exactly 7 of their first 14 games?

    About 1 in 81 with if your population is 4 teams.

    With 5 teams, it's s a little different and the odd are better that at least 4 would be .500.

    Say 1 in 60. With 6 divisions, this would be a 1 in 10 year occurrence. Except that it's much rarer since teams' win probabilities are typicically not 50%


    Right now
    8-7
    8-7
    7-7
    7-8
    7-8

    That is a bunched division.

    The probability a team would win exactly 7 out of 14 games is 1/5 (binomial probability with exactly 7 successes in 14 trials with probability of an individual success equal to 0.5).

    For 4 teams to do it would be (1/5)^4 or 1 in 625. With 6 divisions, it would happen about once every 100 years.

    Cleveland is headed for 9-7 and KC is headed for 7-9.

    Tigers were looking good until the Twins 6-run inning. JV fell apart in the 6th after 5 scoreless innings.
