It's (almost) another AL sweep

One way to look at interleague play is to check the overall record, which once again shows the American League with a significant (137-114) edge.

Another way is to check the rivalries.

If you look at the 13 six-game, head-to-head, home-and-home series that baseball sets up for the major markets, the AL has the advantage in most of them. In fact, the only NL teams that won a home-and-home season series this year were the Giants (5-1 vs. the A's), Cardinals (5-1 vs. the Royals) and the Reds (4-2 vs. the Indians).

One season series ended tied (Dodgers and Angels), while nine went to the AL team (including 5-1 margins for the Yankees against the Mets, the Twins against the Brewers and the Rangers against the Astros). There could be a 10th AL winner, if the White Sox win their makeup game against the Cubs (the Sox currently hold a 3-2 edge in the series).

Does it mean anything? Only what we knew already, which is that even though NL teams have won two of the last three World Series, the AL remains the better league.

It's (almost) another AL sweep

The Rockies may not be the best team in baseball right now, but they are the hottest, yet somehow none of the East and West Coast bias seem to get that at all.  If a big city team had won 20 out of 23 like the Rockies have done, including sweeps of many top tier teams, it would be national headlines.  However, the prejudice againt the Colorado Rockies is almost surreal given the availibity of information in the Internet.  Really, in modern baseball history, how often do teams go on 20-3 bursts?  Bet during the past decade you could count those teams on one hand.  11-4 against the AL is nothing to sneeze at either.
