Top 10 Teams in the Majors

So who are the top 10? 

1) Philadelphia Phillies - 58-35 - .624 winning percentage - NL East Leader
2) Boston Red Sox - 56-36 - .609 percentage - AL East Leader
3) New York Yankees - 54-37 - .593 percentage - AL Wildcard Leader
4) Atlanta Braves - 55-39 - .585 percentage - NL Wildcard Leader
5) Texas Rangers - 54-41 - .568 percentage - AL West Leader
5) San Francisco Giants - 54-41 - .568 percentage - NL West Leader
7) Tampa Bay Rays - 50-42 - .543 percentage
8) Los Angeles Angels - 51-44 - .537 percentage
9) Cleveland Indians - 49-43 - .533 percentage - AL Central Leader
10) St. Louis Cardinals - 50-44 - .532 percentage - NL Central Leader
10) Arizona Diamondbacks - 50-44 - .532 percentage

All the playoff teams are 10 ten teams in the majors.  But the top 8 teams aren't in the playoffs.   Only three of the top 8 are in National League - and they're the three teams with pitching staffs to fear.

So does being a top 10 team translate into top 10 attendance?

1) Phillies - #1 in attendance
2) Red Sox - #7 in attendance
3) Yankees - #2 in attendance
4) Braves - #15 in attendance
5) Rangers - #8 in attendance
5) Giants - #5 in attendance
7) Rays - #28 in attendance
8) Angels - #5 in attendance
9) Indians - #26 in attendance
10) Cardinals - #6 in attendance
10) Diamondbacks - #20 in attendance

Looks like the Braves, Rays, Indians and Diamondbacks fans need to step it up.
