Longterm standings with...
I was wondering whether anyone here might know of a compilation of final MLB standings over the years, along with "expected" won-lost records (RS / RA would suffice only if necessary). The further back the standings dated, the more helpful they would be.
Any information would be appreciated. I thank you for your time.
baseball-reference.com has all of this information...if you look at any league you get complete standings info and if you click on any team, you get a pythagorean W/L...hope that helps...
If you need all of the data in a convenient tabular format all in one place, that probably doesn't help you...but such a file can be generated quickly if that's what you're after, so let us know and one of the folks who has a database will make you a text file or something.
Thank you for the speedy reply, SABR Matt.

Thanks again for the assistance.
