It's a minor thing, but just sums up ESPN's equal coverage beautifully:

One percentage point ahead of Boston, yet we are below Boston in the standings for the Wild Card. That just made me laugh. If anything summed up the Eastern Sports Please Now bias, this is it.

"there's absolutely no bias what-so-ever between the Boston Red Sox exercising
their birth-right to having the baseball sun shine solely on them as compared to the rest of the teams"

They fixed it so much that Oakland is now in first despite being 1 percentage point behind.......must be the west coast bias.....
