MLB Notes, July 25 – Fun With Run Differentials

Because I said so

  • the Cubs have -18 run differential and a 45-54 record
  • the White Sox have a -68 run differential and a 39-59 record
  • the Yankees are the only team with a negative run differential (-6) and a winning record 53-48
  • the Indians have an identical record as the Yankees, but with a +36 run differential
  • The defending World Series champion Giants have an almost identical record as the Cubs, but with a -59 run differential
  • …and so do the Padres
  • In the fairly tightly packed NL East, the Braves are the only team with a positive run differential (+78)
  • the Cardinals are tops in the majors with a +140 run differential
  • the Tigers (+102) and Red Sox (+88) are 2nd and 3rd in that category
  • The Astros are the worst in the majors, with a -156 mark
