The joke of professional baseball. Unlike the american league , the national league has bad teams. They usually 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.
The national league is an embarrassment to us all.
