Default The State of the Game:

As I type this, the Cardinals have played only 5 games.

The Marlins have played 12 games.

The other teams have played:

Phillies - 14

Nationals & Blue Jays - 15

Cubs & Tigers - 16

Pirates, Brewers, Rangers & Orioles - 17

Rockies, Yankees, & Astros - 18

D-Backs, Reds, A's, Twins, White Sox, Inidans, Royals, Angels & Red Sox - 19

Dodgers, Padres, Braves, Mets, Giants, Rays & Mariners - 20


Including tonight, August 14, there are 41 days left in this season.


St. Louis will have to played 55 games during that time - at least seven more than any other team (Marlins).

Is this fair? - is it possible? - is it feasable?


.

and a big shout-out to the KBO for supplying a reasonable alternative while we waited.

They are going by winning percentage if they can't make up games.

Oh, I realize that, but if they wind up playing 10-15 games less than the other teams (16.7-25 % of the season), that, IMO, wouldn't be legit.

As I type this, they have started back and are winning all their games so far.

They still have a lot of double-headers to play in a relatively short amount of time.
