After the Royals wrapped up win number 63 tonight, fans everywhere EXPLODED with joy. The Royals can’t lose 100!
….OK. The joy wasn’t that great. But it was a win for the team, and another save for Soria. That’s 41 saves for Soria in 63 wins for the team. Commenter Gus Zernial at Royals Review said, “Our save to win ratio has to be the highest in baseball.”
That sounded right, but I couldn’t leave it at that. So I looked it up.
Sure enough, the Royals lead the Majors in “Saves to Wins,” which is a totally pointless thing but I figured it out anyway. Here are your top five:
And your bottom five:
|New York Yanks||38||92||42%|
I don’t know if it means anything, but notice that four of the top five teams in this category are bad teams. Three of the bottom five are good teams. What does this mean?
