The strangest result is the Yankees with 92 wins but only a 42 RD, yet Somehow they beat out the Blue Jays with 91 wins but with a 183 RD.
Here are the 4 other teams with positive RD's , but who failed to make the playoffs. How the Blue jays failed to make the playoffs with a 183 RD is astounding, especially with the Red Sox and Yankees making it but with much worse RD's:
Blue Jays (183) 91-71
Oakland (56) 86-76
Reds (26) 83-79
Padres 21) 79-83
Then there are the 2 teams with winning records but with negative RD's:
Seattle (-51) 90-72 how can this happen?
Phillies (-11) 82-80 [Post edited by 1969hoo at 10/06/2021 5:18PM]
