It's because the watered-down postseason has made mid to upper 80s a decent season. Remember, the year we won 85, the team that won the entire American League won 88. Another 88-game winner was 1 win away from the World Series in the National League.

This isn't the 1950s anymore, you don't need to build one of the 2-3 best teams in baseball any more. You just need to be the least ****ty team in your ****ty division and then who knows what happens.
