NL East Team Performs WAY Above Talent
Yes, that's correct, Mets fans. Check the Pythagorean Standings. Somehow, someway the Braves are keeping pace with the Mets despite a measly +3 run differential. The Braves are outperforming their Pythagorean record by 3 games. What does Rory B. Bellows chalk it up to? "Clutch" offense? FUCK NO (ed. note- I looked for a good 30 minutes to find Braves Close and Late situational stats, but came up empty. F U BASEBALL PROSPECTUS AND BASEBALL REFERENCE) Superior record in 1-run games? 8-6 doesn't quite qualify as amazing. Then what? Well- Rory chalks it up to PURE, DUMB, F***ING LUCK! So prepare to regress to the mean, Bravos; and be happy that the fall from 2nd place to last isn't that far.
