Newsletter for games through 7-1-2012

COMMENTARY:  In the NL, Milwaukee picked up 2 games in the central and asserted themselves in the race…The Giants are acting like they might run away with the west; the Dodgers are +2 WOR but 5 games back…The ASFBL Phillies aren’t getting the bad press for being suddenly old, and they still have time to pose a challenge to the Nationals…In the AL, the Royals posted the best record in the league at 5-1; Oakland was only a half game behind at 5-2…In the actual AL east, all 5 teams are .500 or better; in the ASFBL, the Jays, Orioles, and Bosox are all doing better than their actual counterparts…Baltimore hitters lead the ASFBL with 121 HR…The Marlins lead the ASFBL with 80 stolen bases…National pitchers have allowed a league-low 54 HR, and the bullpen has allowed only 10% of inherited runners to score, best in the league…Minnesota pitchers have allowed only 169 walks, the best in the league, and really amazing when you consider that no other team has fewer than 200.
