The Los Angeles Dodgers have been on a completely different level than everybody else in Major League Baseball this year.
At 102-44, they own the best record in all of baseball.
They’ve already wrapped up the NL West race, capturing their ninth division title in the last 10 years and they’ve also already secured a first-round bye.
But even after all of that, they remain on an unreal pace and are miles ahead of everybody else.
They sit 58 games above the .500 mark.
Meanwhile, teams such as the Washington Nationals, Pittsburgh Pirates, Detroit Tigers, Kansas City Royals, and Oakland Athletics have barely won more than 50 games this season.
THE DODGERS ARE 58 GAMES OVER .500
The Royals have won 58 games all season
The Tigers have won 56 games all season
The Pirates have won 55 games all season
The A’s have won 53 games all season
The Nationals have won 51 games all season

Dodgers On A Crazy Pace
The Dodgers are already miles ahead of everybody else, but these teams especially.
It’s been a rough go of it for them, but not for the Dodgers.
The Dodgers have been firing on all cylinders since day one.
The addition of Freddie Freeman helped them reaffirm their stance as a clear World Series contender, and now they’re a serious threat to win their second ring in three years.
There’s a lot to be excited about if you’re a Dodgers fan right now.
If you’re a fan of any of the other teams listed, not so much.
But it goes to show just how dominant Los Angeles has been this year.
The NL West race wasn’t even close, and neither is the race for the best record in the National League.
It’s looking like the Dodgers will be the ones with home-field advantage through the World Series when it’s all said and done, assuming they reach that point.
But there’s no slowing down this team, at least not right now.
