Seems like The AL is stacked with all the arms for a change.

The top 5 teams in K% are all in the AL.

1. Boston - 27.8%, 10.15 K/9.
2. Detroit - 25.3%, 9.5 K/9.
3. K.C. - 24.5%, 8.95 K/9.
4. Chicago AL - 22.9%, 8.48 K/9.
5. Texas - 22.6%, 8.27 K/9


I see 3 AL Central teams in the top 4.

At first I thought man The AL Central must strike out a lot so I checked Team Batting K% and saw that Cleveland's K% was the 3rd highest at 23.2% then the next highest was The White Sox at 10th highest K% at 20.6%.


ERA wise 6 of the top 9 teams are out of the AL.

1. Atlanta - 1.77
2. Boston - 2.66
3. Texas - 2.85
4. LA Dodgers - 3.26
5. Kansas City - 3.30
6. Detroit - 3.35
7. St. Louis - 3.38
8. Oakland - 3.55
9. Chicago AL - 3.55


Is this really how the league is going to play out this year? How long can The AL be so much more dominate pitching wise? As we all know it's usually the other way around.
