NL Bias in WIS Power Rankings Topic

Bottom 6 teams in the AL?  The Royals and Yankees are worse than the Marlins and Cubs?  Blasphemy.

Let's face it, it's just fun to see the Yankees that far down, regardless.

The only thing that would be better is the Red Sux being below the Skanks.

Or seeing them both below the Rays, Jays, and O's.  Of course, that would indicate that the simulation is total crap.  But...  If that were correct, it would be great.

Royals get no credit here...

The WifS "power" rankings are a joke.

Well, its a computer. doesnt really have the same way of calculating things that we would and so the rankings are different. Also, It relies on stats.
Take the stinkees. They were pretty much putting a second team out there. So the simulation had them down in the rankings. The Royals dont have great stats or big name players so they are down. But they are finding ways to win. 
I can understand that we think that these power rankings don't make sense. But its a computer.

Yes...i'm a Sox homer....but seriously?  They've had the best record in the AL for give or take 90% of the season.  I can see putting the Tigers ahead of them, but I seriously don't see how the O's Rays and Rangers are ahead of them (AL only).

Just stupid.

I mean, they talk about "Stats" and that they are computers.  Sox have the most runs scored in the AL and are 7th in runs against.

Yes...the Royals are getting a major shaft in the "Power" rankings as well.  I really like their pitching.  Good to see them playing well again.

I think a Kansas City / Pittsburgh World Series would be awesome - plus, it would probably give Bud Selig a heart attack.

The 8 people who'd watch it would probably enjoy it.
