In-Season Promotion/Relegation Standings at

May 12, 2012 by TheUmpire The sabermetric savants over at have started an in-season promotion/relegation table for American baseball this year.

What is Promotion-Relegation? (from here on out we’ll just call it P-R) The P-R system is one in which teams are in tiered leagues (i.e. in baseball: the Majors, Triple-A, AA, and so forth) and at the end of each season, the top few teams in each league trade places with the bottom few in the league above them. In some countries, there is a playoff, rather than automatically trading places.  A P-R league is open (the best teams rise, the lesser teams fall), the worst teams have to fight for their lives at the end of the season. This creates a passion that’s hard to find outside of some college sports.
