Its funny how you picked the "good" teams
I did make a mistske, I shouldn't have included the Padres in the "bad teams."
I based it on record. Bad teams are ten or more games below .500. Good teams are ten or more games above .500.
To be honest, I think the whole "strength of schedule" concept is silly in the middle of the season. Way to many factors to make any accurate conclusions.
What isn't silly, but just plain unfair, is that the Cards clearly have and have always had a significant advantage against other Centepral teams by playing KC in at least two series every year. Add in that they get the Mariners while the Reds get the Rangers, and the Cardinals overall have an easier schedule than the Reds this year.
