I believe using the formula:
One method, endorsed by Major League Baseball is to take the number of games remaining for the division leaders, add 1, then subtract the difference in the number of losses between the leaders and the second place team. In other words:
M = G1 + 1 – ( L2 – L1 )
Gives the Phillies 163 to start.
I’ll bump it again at 100 and then when we’re down the stretch.
Also will keep the Braves, Nationals, and Marlins in mind seeing as how one of those teams will probably be in the lead at that point.
