Okay. Thanx. That's what I was wondering. What would have been the determining factor between who played whom first? Were there other stats that would have determined that? This is all new to me since they changed the format a couple years ago.

In a what could be called a stroke of genius, Bud Selig while adding another Wild Card team actually put more importance back into winning the division all while keeping more markets interested and satisfying the purist. Now teams are not settling for the wild card but actively trying to win the division so they don't have to play in the dreaded one game playoff. I love the new format. More emphasis on winning the division while handing out out a little more hope to more teams, this is a both sides, win-win.

Power Outage in Chicago This Year

By scoring 602 runs in 2013, the Chicago Cubs finished 28th among 30 teams. Just below them in the # 29 slot we find the White Sox who crossed the plate 597 times.

Still, those teams were comparative offensive Titans to the last place finisher. The Miami Marlins scored 512 runs. That was one fewer than the 513 runs scored by the 2010 Seattle Mariners. To find a team with fewer runs scored in a non strike year, we have to go back to 1971 when the Padres scored 486. The teams were twins at the plate:

1971 Padres: .233 /.293 /.332
2013 Marlins: .231 /.293 /.335
