On Major League Baseball's Standings page, one of the fields is headed >.500: "Record against >.500 teams".

Is this the record in games against teams whose record was above .500 when the game was played, or games against teams whose record is above .500 now?

1 Answer 1


Current record, not at the time of the game.

For example, the White Sox are "6-9" against .500 teams; that includes 4-4 against CLE, 2-2 against BOS, and 0-3 against NYY. However, the KC Royals were over .500 for several of their games, the Mariners even were over .500 for the first game they played, etc.; while CLE, BOS, and NYY were all over .500 for all of the games they played against the White Sox.
