WHO SHOULD’VE WON PENNANTS AND DIVISIONS ACCORDING TO PYTHAGOREAN W-L RECORDS

Pythagorean W-L records are W-L records based on runs scored and runs allowed. In other words how things “should’ve” happened. I decided to compile a list of pennants and divisions that “should’ve been won” by a different team based on the Pythagorean W-L records.
