I’m not entirely sure what to make of these numbers. I understand them, but I’m not entirely sure that numbers like this can fully explain why one team wins and another team loses when it comes to the postseason. It does, however, give some sort of snapshot of the Yankees compared to the two teams about to play in the World Series.
