have bad players in the lineups, and the worst pitching rotations int the world. At best, the league will have no better than 3 teams with a .500 winning percentage. Whoever leaves the american league to play in the national league will increase their stats significantly. Pitchers era’s will drop atleast 1 full run. And they have no chance of a world championship. Minor league baseball is more competitive. If the Mets can be 30 games above .500 with a pitching rotation of Steve Trachsel, John Maine, Orlando Hernandez, Dave Williams, and Brian Bannister, you know something isn’t right.
