    2037 End Of May RPI Rankings

    • The Gauntlet: So the Angels have a losing record and end up #2 in the RPI and you may be wondering why. The Angels have played the 3rd toughest schedule in the league(only behind the Rays and Blue Jays) and have managed to hit basically a .500 weighted record. The RPI doesn't see this but they also did this without star SS Jon Wright for 3 weeks. The Angels look to be a dangerous team going forward and especially if their schedule easies up.
    • 1st or 3rd? The Brewers have had a stunning turnaround to start the 2037 season after finishing the RPI in last place the past 2 seasons. They currently lead the NL Central by just a 1/2 game over the Cubs, but the RPI slots them as the 3rd best team in their division....even behind 25-29 Cincinnati. The Brewers have had the 4th easiest schedule so far so will they be able to prove that their resurgence is real or will they fall back down to the depths that they've shown for much of the past decade?
    • Minute Men Again? The Phillies opened the 2036 RPI with a solid #1 Ranking and find themselves there again. Last year they seemed to get a little too excited and spent themselves too early. Will they fall into the trap again or have they built up their endurance to last all season long?
    • Wins Aren't Everything: Despite 2 teams over .500 and a 3rd just 1 game under .500, the RPI hates the AL Central. The entire division is in the bottom half of the RPI despite 3 of them finishing in the top 7 last year. It still looks to be a competitive division but has the AL Central fallen off from the competition around the league?
    • How Low Can You Go? The Blue Jays are 12-42. That is epically bad. How bad? With a .222 winning percentage, the Jays are on pace for the worst season in MLB History since the 1899 Cleveland Spiders went 20-134. In the modern era of baseball, the Philadelphia Athletics hold the record for the worst ever season where they went 36-117 in 1916 with a .235 winning percentage. The Blue Jays are on pace for a 36-126 record. Can they make history and break the mark that has stood for 120 years?

    The AL Central appears to be in fine shape when compared to the NL. Currently the AL still has a lot of shaking out to do with only 2 teams breaking away from the pack in Baltimore and Texas. Surprisingly the AL East has the two worst team sin baseball so far. Curious to see how things progress. I'd argue you see two AL Central teams make the playoffs this year, again.

    I'm barely better than the 12 win Blue Jays. That does not bode well for the Braves.
