That's amamzing....and I can't quite remember a complete division ever finishing all teams above .500. or maybe it does happen alot. Could the NL east be the best division ever? I don't know how one could find these stats.
hard to really say if they are the best division ever by depth,,,, but i would venture to say easily that the NL East last place team this year will be the best "last" place team in baseball.... but i also can not say that Atlanta is the best first place team in baseball either,,,so that really wipes out the "best" division in baseball theory imo....
The AL West in 2002
Team W L WL%
Oakland OAK 103 59 .636
Anaheim ANA 99 63 .611
Seattle SEA 93 69 .574
Texas TEX 72 90 .444
Oakland had the Big 3 and and MVP year from Tejada
Anaheim won the WS as the Wild Card team
Seattle was the best team to not make the playoffs
and Texas was damned respectable for having to play 54 games against division rivals who averaged 98 wins each.
