If the MLB was the NFL week 6

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.

This would be week 6 of NFL. Every 10 game stretch of the MLB season equals a week of the NFL. Just like the NFL we have a little bit of separation occurring in some of the divisions.

The Angels, Braves and Twins have not had a winning 10 game stretch yet this season. The Braves and Twins are not surprising but the Angels are a bit of a surprise. They have not been over the top bad but have been consistently mediocre going 5-5 or 4-6 every week.

Giants and Dodgers both 4-2 in the NL west but Rockies, D-Backs and Padres all 1-5 are basically out of it.

White Sox after a strong start are now back at .500 3-3. Indians are that NFL team that had a tough early season schedule and lost tough games and are now 2-4.Good things to come to the Tribe the last 10 NFL weeks.

The AL East is a log jam of 3-3 and 2-4 teams, not much separates those 5 teams.

Could the Astros be back? Is AK47 right and the Astros will eventually win the AL west. The ‘Stros went 7-3 in week 6 of the MLB/NFL season. A big victory that could turn around their season.
