Cubs Are #1! (In the 2013 Amateur Draft Pick Race)

In what is sadly becoming an annual tradition, OV has unveiled this years' version of our reverse standings.  A few people have been asking for it sooner, but I had wanted to wait until the Cubs had fallen at least 10 games back in the standings to officially unveil our recognition that no miracle will occur this year.

The reverse standings started over at Aisle 424 as my way of trying to look at the bright side of sucking.  For those who may be new to the feature, they feature a Loss/Win record rather than the traditional Win/Loss record because it just seems nicer to say that the Cubs are 29-15.  We also calculate the Loss Percentage instead of a Winning Percentage.   Again, .659 looks better than .341.

So we'll update these periodically and find a place on the site for them, but as of now, the Cubs recent nine-game surge has vaulted them to the top of the standings. Who says the Cubs Way isn't working?
