## THT Dartboard: May 10, 2008

Posted by Matthew Carruth
I've been in San Francisco all weekend for a conference and thus have been unable to get around to writing up a full dartboard so I am posting it here as a side post so that you can at least have reference to the current week's ratings.

###### Dartboard

Welcome to The Hardball Times Dartboard, our weekly attempt to rank all the teams in baseball. The Dartboard Factor is how many wins a team would be expected to have at the end of the season if it played a neutral schedule. Next to that, you'll find the Dartboard Factor from the previous week. An explanation of our method can be found here.

#1 Arizona Diamondbacks (Dartboard Factor = 103, 105):
#2 Chicago Cubs (Dartboard Factor = 101, 102):
