Over one month, SOS is less than meaningless, because every teams's record is heavily influenced by their own strength of schedule. For instance, both the Angels and Nats have had a really tough schedule, so their records makes it look like they're not as good as they really are. Same with the Reds. But I'm certain that by the end of the year, the records of all three teams will be some of the best in the majors.
I'm a little confused. If at the end of the season the SOS all even out then doesn't that support what I said? Despite what laa and Washington's records are at the end of the season I know the reds played them when they were both scuffling.
I believe the angels are really bad, and I don't think the nats offense is very good after I saw what the cards pitchers did to them in their sweep.
