If the MLB was the NFL week 5 standings

The NFL season is 16 weeks long. The MLB season is 162 games long. What would happen if you looked at the MLB standings in 10 games increments as if it was a 16 game NFL season? We will post standings approximately every 10 games of the MLB season. A team with a 5-5 record counts as a loss because if a team goes .500 during the season in the MLB they will not make the wild card.

I took the liberty of making the weekly score for each MLB team as if it was an NFL team based on the results of their previous 10 games.

The White Sox with back to back NFL losses (2 losing 10 game stretches in MLB) have come back to the pack in the AL Central. The Indians with a losing NFL record have been a very consistent 5-5, 4-6 and 6-4 team in 10 game stretches this season.
