Interleague postmortem

Throughout interleague I've commented a number of times about how much the NL sucks. In fact, the GYS Network is now the first page you get when you google "NL sucks". Anyway, for a bunch of recent articles on the AL-NL disparity, click here (lots of talk of realignment). Here are the numbers I like the most:
  • AL wins, 154-98 (.611). The average AL team would be a 99-game winner in the NL. Meanwhile, 90 wins will probably get at least one NL team into the playoffs.
  • Kansas City, 18-44 against the AL (.290), went 9-9 (.500) in interleague. Thanks to the NL, they're now far less likely to have The Worst Season In Baseball History.
  • Submitted without comment: Pedro, Lowe, and Arroyo, who combined are 20-8 with a 2.87 ERA against the NL, went 2-4 with a 4.42 ERA in 9 starts against the AL.
