AL Statis-Pro Season Concludes

The NL Statis-Pro season has been dormant due to a move and heavy work load - so sorry for so few blogs. Luckily the AL season played in Montana has concluded and will start playoffs this weekend - so here is there recap.

 Here’s a recap of the Statis-Pro American League regular season.

I will start the playoffs this weekend.



It was a tight finish for the 2021 Statis-Pro American League playoff race.

The Astros held on to win the “West” title and a first round bye, by winning a head-to-head matchup with the White Sox.

Chicago finished strong winning 5 of 7 to put on the pressure but came up short.  The Angels faded badly to slip out of the last wild card spot.

In the “East”, the Red Sox stumbled losing 3 of 4, but had enough to hold off the Yankees.  The Rays remain an enigma by underperforming but still making the playoffs.

Speaking of underperforming, that would best describe both Oakland and Toronto during this year’s 41-game season.
