Some Amazing Symmetry for Numbers Nerds

Check out these standings from Baseball Reference, at the start of Saturday’s games:

Each division in the corresponding region (AL East/NL East, AL Central/NL Central, AL West/NL West) has nearly the same exact standings as of today.

Even the last place teams in each division, especially if you chop out the Padres in the NL West, have nearly the same records.  In fact, all the teams from the leader to the basement dweller have nearly the same corresponding records to their counterparts in the other league.

Just a statistical oddity that I felt like sharing with you.
