^^That's up to you to decide I would think. It all just shows how tough a mountain the AL East is to scale really.

I had a look at your link and it is depressing to see that of the top 10 MLB teams in the BtB power rankings the Jays rank 4th and there are 4 teams from the AL East and, no, the Orioles aren't one of them.

Off topic slightly, I wandered around the BtB site and found this item on the Btb homepage; (http://www.beyondtheboxscore.com/)

Most Wins Above Replacement of the 1980s (Pitchers)

and Dave Stieb's name jumped out at me. You can check the out article yourself but the big statement for me was at the end.


It's pretty clear to me that the pitcher who should get the credit for being the best of the 1980s is not Jack Morris, but instead Dave Stieb.

:clap:

I think it is a good thing. The numbers show that our team is better than their record which is certainly better than numbers that tell us our team is a fluke. 71-54 still doesn't get us in the playoffs.
