09/07/2005: From the interesting juxtapositions department....
I only now noticed this. At least of today (though I suspect this has been true for some time now), the best and the worst teams in Major League Baseball are both Missouri teams.
The St. Louis Cardinals (GO CARDS!) are the best team in MLB, at 88-51 (.633).
The Kansas City Royals are the worst team in MLB, at 44-92 (.324).
As a native of the Show-me State, I take some pride in that distinction.
