Last night after the game and all day today the Reds stood atop the NL Central standings everywhere you looked(I know it was a 3 way tie but we we were listed first).Now when you look at the standing we sit in the very familiar 4th spot in the standings.:thumbdown

Unimportant question.If teams are tied in the standings in every possible way is there something other then a web sites or news papers personal preference that dictates the order they are shown in?

Off days suck. I'm bored to death and actually doing homework.

I agree, the good news is we were due to lose today, hopefully we skipped that day, and will go right back to winning :D

Alphabetical order on mlb.com or other "non-bias" sources.

That just gives me one more reason to hate the Cubs.:evil:

I feel that every day without Reds baseball, is a lost day.

The NL Central division is on fire right now. Its by far the best division in baseball right now. Not saying it will be at the end of the year but right now the NL Central is the best in MLB.

Im pretty sure ties then go to runs scored.

Teams play one game playoffs if the standing are tied, so it really doesn't matter. Or are you asking if how they're sorted through the year? It really doesn't matter. I imagine every place does it differently.

Go figure this though, when STL, Milwaukee, and Cincy were tied yesterday, they were put in exactly that order on ESPN.com, even though STL had a higher run differential. Today, STL is above Milwaukee in the 'tie' the same way, and we're 'above' the Cubs in the same tie, with less runs scored and a smaller differential. On sportsline.com its just the opposite. Milwaukee is listed 'higher' than STL, and the Cubs are listed 'higher' than us. On MLB.com its the same thing.

Who knows how who gets priority in standings. In the end its settled by a playoff anyway.

Yep, and ESPN uses size of market to determine. We are always the last team listed in a tie situation.

I've seen the last team to win jump to the top.
