Looking over the stat page this morning, and was struck by a few oddities:
-Arizona has had 3 different winners of the NL Player of the Week award (trivia: name them, and if you guess Steve Finley, who already has 16 home runs, you’re chosen poorly). Still, they’re less than decent. It’s a team game.
-Think the DH helps? The NL has 10 teams with ERAs under 4. The AL: 1 (Oakland).
-We all thought that the NL Central would be the pitchers’ division, but with injuries and mediocre showings from some of the marquee names, it’s the NL East that has the top 3 pitching teams, and division leading Florida isn’t among them.
