The Schedule that Remains

I took a look at the remaining schedule for each of the pennant contenders. Here’s a list of the Offensive Winning Percentage of each contender’s opposing teams, starting with tomorrow’s games and continuing through the rest of the season. First, the crazy AL West:

Team  Games    OWP
OAK     32    .503
ANA     32    .506
TEX     33    .519

The schedule doesn’t have much impact there. Here’s the NL West:

Team  Games    OWP
SFG     29    .470
LAD     32    .497
SDP     32    .505

The Giants, who play the Rockies, Diamondbacks and Brewers over the next two weeks, have a bit of an advantage here. If the race gets closer, there will be dynamite action the last two weeks of the season, when the Dodgers and Giants play two of their last three series against each other.

Here’s the AL Wildcard race:

Team  Games    OWP
ANA     32    .506
BOS     32    .511
TEX     33    .519

Again, it doesn’t look like the schedule gives any one team much of an advantage. Here’s the NL wildcard:

Team  Games    OWP
SFG     29    .470
CHC     31    .482
FLO     32    .501
HOU     31    .502
SDP     32    .505

Same deal with the Giants. But the Cubs also have an advantageous schedule going forward, as they play series against the Expos, Mets, Reds and Pirates.
