Breakdown of the Cubs record

So there has been much misinformation out there about the Cubs record. This post is just to inform what they've done this year.

The record on the road is 25-33

The record at home is 35-22

 

Then if you break it down for the opponent team's record (at the time of playing them)

Road vs below 500 teams 15-14   rs107  ra104   (rs=runs scored  ra=runs against)

Road vs 500 teams 2-1   rs 21   ra13

Road vs above 500 teams 8-18   rs98  ra134

 

Home vs below 500 teams  16-8   rs129  ra90

Home vs 500 teams   2-1   rs9  ra8

Home vs above 500 teams  17-13   rs147   ra136

 

So we battle the losing teams really well on the road(15-14), while we struggle against the good teams on the road.(8-18)

And at home we do well against the poor teams(16-8) while we battle well against winning teams.(17-13)

 

And then I decided to break it down a little bit further, because sometimes teams with losing records are playing well at the time. So base on the other teams record for its past 10 games before playing us:

On the road, playing teams that have gone 4-6 or less   8-8   rs52  ra48

         broken down vs losing teams 7-4   rs41  ra33

         broken down vs winning teams 1-4    rs11  ra15

 

On the road, playing teams that have gone 6-4 or more   7-19   rs100  ra142

         broken down vs losing teams 2-7   rs24   ra37

         broken down vs winning teams 5-12   rs76   ra105

 

At home, playing teams that have gone 4-6 or less    13-4   rs104  ra70

         broken down vs losing teams 10-0   rs73   ra29

         broken down vs winning teams  3-4   rs31   ra41

 

At home, playing teams that have gone 6-4 or more    12-9    rs90  ra83

         broken down vs losing teams 3-2   rs25   ra21

         broken down vs winning teams 9-7   rs65  ra62

 

See the trouble spot, just because we're playing below 500 teams doesn't mean we have an easy time with it. If the team we're playing is playing well we struggle on the road no matter who we're playing.

 

So what can we extrapolate for the rest of the season based on these numbers? Absolutely nothing., just because you do something before means that you will continue to do the same thing. (the only thing you can actually take from this is that I had way too much time on my hands last night)

 

Now, hopefully the posters will know the actual numbers and the misinformation will stop.
