My southwest sports final of the Cubune this morning headlined "Royal win knocks Sox out of first place."

The story then noted how it moved the Royals "percentage point" ahead of the Sox.

Directly below were the standings that showed the Sox with a winning percentage of .530 and the Royals with a winning percentage of--surprise--.530.

Those special data reading skills are extra sharp at the gothic towers today.

I think that's being a bit picky.

KC is 70-62, for a winning percentage of .5303
Sox are 71-63, for a winning percentage of .5298

The Royals are in 1st place, the Sox in 2nd. Maybe not by a full percentage point, but enough of a difference to point this out.

The Sox are a full-game in back of Kansas City in the loss column. From now till the end of September, that is the only column worth watching.

I suggest forgetting about the percentages. It will only drive you crazy. Not that Sox Fans are prone to that or anything. :smile:
