The Halfway Stats

The following are the stats for the NL Central Contenders halfway through the season. Milwaukee has been hovering around the .500 mark for the Pythagorean Run Factor for most of the year. Again, it's troubling that the Cubs are actually playing so well and the stats prove it out that they may be the BRIBB, at least for now. I included the Arizona stats as the Crew starts a four game series in the Valley of the Sun tonight. BTW, if any of you guys know how to get graphs from Excel into Blogger, let me know and I'll post them up for the stats up to this point.
