This my first thread and I hope that it is useful information. I have been reading for about a month now and find it intersting that with all of the statistics thrown around I have not seen anyone notice that "WE" have the best division record in the central at 33-25. The Cardinals are below .500 at 24-27. That is huge at this time of year when the you have to play in your division more than any other time of the year.:beerme: :thumbup:

Always helps to beat those in your own division. Not something that has been happening in recent years for the REDS. Esp. when compared to the winning pcts. against other divisions...

2005
NL Cent: 33-46 (.418)
NL East: 16-19 (.457)
NL West: 17-16 (.515)

2004
NL Cent: 38-52 (.422)
NL East: 18-12 (.600)
NL West: 15-15 (.500)

Very interesting and very important! And what a change from years past to this season for our beloved REDS. A good and major reason why they are still alive at this time.

A better division record could help in a tiebreaker situation.

Excerpts from Major League Rule 33 and Major League Rule 34

Scenario #1: If there is a tie for a Division Championship and the winning percentage of the two Clubs tied for first place is higher than the winning percentage of each of the second-place Clubs in the same League, the Division Champion shall be:

The Club with the higher winning percentage in head-to-head competition between the two tied Clubs during the championship season; or

If the Clubs remain tied, then to the tied Club with the higher winning percentage in intradivision games during the championship season; or
If the Clubs remain tied, then to the tied Club with the higher winning percentage in the last half of intraleague games during the championship season; or

If the Clubs remain tied, then to the tied Club with the higher winning percentage in the last half plus one of intraleague games during the championship season, provided that such additional game was not a game between the two tied Clubs. This process will be followed game-by-game until the tie is broken.
