MLB: According to the Wall Street Journal, “Since 1996, just 9% of teams with a losing record on June 1 wound up with 90 wins, the number teams usually shoot for to make the playoffs … During that early season period, the average correlation between a team’s win percentage on June 1 and its final winning percentage is 0.76. Statisticians consider that to be a very high correlation.” So kiss the postseason hopes goodbye, Twins fans (15-27). Can the Cubs (19-23) get over .500 in the next 10 days? When does the Dodgers’ (20-25) fire sale begin? The only team that could fall into that 9% might be the Angels (22-23), who are in a horrible division and just 1.5 games out of 1st place. [WSJ]
