2014: PARITY

Here's a very quick visual that will show you just how even-steven things still are across MLB in 2014.

The teams in bright orange are the ones between .475-.525.

There are twice as many of those (as of today's standings) than was the case last year (14 to 7).

STDEV for MLB in WPCT this year is .060. Last year at this time it was .087.

We'll crunch the data for more seasons a bit later on, and see where things stand in a larger historical context.
