The Rays Winning the ALE Was Insane

More so than originally imagined. Check out BP's adjusted standings page BP's adjusted standings page and look at "W3" -- third order wins, which, as explained is:

W3, L3 ("Third-order wins"): Pythagenport wins and losses, based on AEQR and AEQRA.

Adjusted runs derived from EqA for/against. Here's the totals for the ALE division:

Boston 102.1
Tampa 97
Toronto 92
New York 91.3
Baltimore 73.7

Only one other team in the entire league (Cubs) had 90+ third-order wins, the American League East had four teams alone. Group of death indeed. Thanks to Bendix for pointing this out to me.
