Agreed.  It's way harder to lose 150 games in a 16-team league.
6/30/2013 12:44 AM

Looks like the disparity was part of the nature of the league.

Reminds me of a bit of trvia:
What was the last year a team won 100 games and did not make the playoffs?
6/30/2013 3:04 AM
93 giants ??

Yep.

Do you know what is the most games won in the wild card era without making the playoffs?
6/30/2013 5:27 AM
cuppie1, I am with you on this...brilliant line.

In that theme half the teams were playing under a fatigue restriction that turned out to be horrible. Only 8 competitive teams with a bunch of cheap Wins.

In a 24 team league, there are 8 chances to make it to the playoffs. In a 16 team league there are only 4. If I have these numbers right, that is what discourages me from signing up for 16 team leagues.
7/7/2013 4:10 PM
But in a 24 team league you need to beat out 8 teams to make the playoffs(be the 4th best out of 12 NL/AL teams - in a 16 team league you only have to beat out 3 teams(your division) to make the playoffs.
7/7/2013 9:29 PM
Not true on the 4th best, grayfoxx.  I've seen 4th best team NOT make the playoffs in a 24-team league. 

Clearly, it's easier to make the playoffs in a 24 team league (33% chance) than in a 16 team league (25% chance).

Here is a league I'm in where two "4th-best" teams failed to make it.
