How the divisions are doing in relation to games over .500:
AL West +41
AL East +28
AL Central -45

NL West +28
NL East -22
NL Central -30

What does it all mean? Maybe the water is bad in the central part of the country(except for St Louis)

A quick regression on salary and winning percentage shows a gaudy R2 of .254. When removing the Marlins, the number only increases to .311. Since salary doesn't seem to be the driver, I'm going with your water theory.

I'm guessing whatever relationship there might be is curvilinear . . .
