Yanks getting raw deal in standings

Yanks getting raw deal in standings

Guy Hildreth, Rotterdam


I can’t really take it anymore. It seems that the sports editor has a favorite that isn’t the New York Yankees. 

The Yanks have been in first with the best winning record for quite some time.

But each day, they appear second to the dreaded Red Sox.

Please let the editor know that the best is determined by winning percentage, (not GB). 

Thanks from a lifetime Yankee fan.

Guy Hildreth


Editor’s note: A team’s winning percentage might not always coincide with its place in the standings, due to differences in the way each are calculated in relation to the number of games a team has played at a particular point in the season. We do not alter the daily standings provided by Major League Baseball.
