    TEAM	OPS+ 	wOBA	wRC+
    LAD	104	0.316	103
    STL	103	0.322	106
    ATL	100	0.324	106
    PIT	99	0.307	96
    CIN	95	0.316	96

    Can someone find a similar comparison (stats) from last year on the Giants, around the same point in the season, and how they stacked up vs those playoff contending teams?

    I don't discount stats; but once a team crosses that "threshold" and makes it into the post-season, just how relevant are some of these stats?

    How many times have we seen teams, when looking at them from a statistical analysis standpoint, and in comparison to the other teams in the post-season, that don't "stack up" vs that competition, yet they go on to win because, basically, things just start to click for them and go their way, they get hot.

    Yet you're still left shaking your heads because, from an analysis standpoint, and on paper, the teams that seem to have the advantage, the ones everyone picks to advance/win, don't.

    It's anybody's ballgame once you get into that post-season.

    Eight more times in August so far. Total at 44 now in 131 games, if my math is right.

    The 1 or 0 games has risen to 25. Twenty-five!

    Pirates' numbers are almost identical, 44 and 26.

    Cards are at 36 and 18, respectively.

    Braves 39 and 22.

    Dodgers 42 and 19.

    New era of baseball since the dawn of the cable TV age, 2-1, 3-2 and 2-0 games are happening all over the place. 3 runs seems to be the new 4 or 5 runs where you have a good chance to eek out a tough win.

    The Dodgers/Braves/Cards ability to avoid as many 2 run or less games seems to mirror the difference in the total wins.
