Let's be honest here though, we're very fortunate we are in the weakest division in baseball at the top or else, we'd have a bit of a bigger hole to climb.
You work with the cards you're dealt. Someone actually tried arguing with me today saying that if the Dodgers win the division, it won't be that much of an accomplishment because of the strength of the division.
My response to that is that it does not matter how strong your division is. All that matters is that you get to the playoffs. In baseball, the best team in the strongest division means absolutely nothing. Being the hottest team at the time is what matters.
