A Look at the Standings

We’re nearing the end of the regular season, so it may be time to take a look at the league standings. This info is, of course, available on the league’s website, but let’s take a look at what’s up….

North W L Pct. GB
1 Purcellville 22 11 0.667
2 New Market 20 15 0.571 3
3 Strasburg 17 17 0.500 5.5
4 Winchester 16 18 0.471 6.5
5 Front Royal 16 19 0.457 7
6 Woodstock 12 21 0.364 10

The Cannons have a good grip on the top seed here- 3 games with 9 games left. New Market is a solid #2 (with only 7 games left), and the Express (8 left), Royals (8 left), and Cardinals (7 left) are battling for the last two spots. The Cards are sinking, and the Royals are streaking. The River Bandits have a hill to climb to get back into it.

If the season ended right now, the playoffs would be:

#1 Purcellville vs #4 Winchester
#2 new Market vs #3 Strasburg

South W L Pct. GB
1 Charlottesville 23 9 0.719
2 Waynesboro 19 17 0.528 6
3 Harrisonburg 17 17 0.500 7
4 Staunton 15 20 0.429 9.5
5 Covington 10 23 0.303 13.5

This division is a little more settled, at least at the top.

The Tom Sox have clinched a playoff spot, even with 10 games left. The Generals (6 games left) and the Turks (8 left) are battling for the 2nd spot, with the Braves (7 left) looking on. The Lumberjacks aren’t eliminated from the playoffs, but they need a run in their last 9 games to catch Staunton.

If the season ended today:

#1 Charlottesville vs #4 Staunton
#2 Waynesboro vs #3 Harrisonburg

Charlottesville is 1.5 games ahead of Purcellville for the top overall seed as well.
