As of today, 9 of the 14 American League teams are .500 or better
In the National League, 10 of 16 are.
19 of the 30 teams are at least .500. That's nearly 2/3 of the teams. That number should be between 14-16, statistically speaking.
That means that the bad teams are getting beat up.
That also means that there are a few pretenders that will fall by the wayside as they start playing better teams.
Will the Mets be one of those teams?
I sure hope not.
