Most of the times, when we talk about sports, the first one that comes to mind is soccer.
Well, we are taking a different route today. We are talking Baseball, specifically, the Major League Baseball.
The league has been on for a while now, and by now, you should have your favourites in place – that is, if you are following the league’s games.
Anyways, we have our favourites. Typically, our favourites are the teams that are topping the charts at the moment.
It’s been a struggle among these teams, and they have been alternating the top spots since the onset of the league.
Let’s take a look at the top six teams, and how well they have performed since the beginning of the season.
Here they are:
New York Yankees
Our first pick is from the American League East.
So far, they have played 109 games; out of which they won 70 games. Though they have suffered defeats this season, it hasn’t been that tragic. They have 39 losses to show for this season.
Their winning percentage is also quite high. They have a 0.642 PCT, which is one of the highest we have seen this season.
The Minnesota Twins top the American League Central charts.
They have also played 109 games since the beginning of the season, and they have won 67. This is way more than half, which is good.
They, however, have 42 losses on their record. Doing well this season, they have gotten a 0.615 winning percentage.

Now, moving to the National League East, we have the Atlanta Braves.
One hundred eleven games down and they have 65 wins to show for it. They have 46 losses; yet, this doesn’t change the fact that they have done a good job this season.
Their 0.586 winning percentage is enough proof that they have.

This team represents the National League Central.
Out of the 108 games they have played this season, they have won 58 and lost 50. Though their winnings are almost at the average, they have performed better than other teams in the National League Central.
Their 0.537 winning percentage puts them on top of their region’s table.
