OPL is designed to measure a team's performance level real-time, with 50.0 being average. Houston was the hottest team coming into the ASB, but have decidely cooled. The Rays and Bosox continue to be strong, while the Mariners, Royals and Tigers are making moves up the peloton. It's July, I'm gonna use cycling metaphors. Only five teams in the AL are above 50.0, so there is room for improvement (especially in the Central). Check here for all past days' OPLs, starting with the All Star Break. We'll track these values throughout the remainder of the regular season, which will give us a sense of teams peaking (or not) as the playoffs draw near.​

Idealsports.net introduces a new, more insightful and natural, way of looking at standings. Rather than a tired 'last 10 games' and 'current streak', Fibonacci Standings utilizes the universal golden ratio to give a more nuanced and accurate sense of a team's performance. In addition, the Overall Performance Level (OPL) is a new metric designed to measure every team's current level of performance, with 50.0 being average.

OPL

OPL is designed to measure a team's performance level real-time, with 50.0 being average. There is no surprise in the National League, as it looks as though the Dodgers will not lose another game, much less lose another series. Seriously, LA is so much hotter than any other team in MLB right now. There's got to be a cooldown, right? The Pirates have gotten quite warm, and have climbed to the top of the peloton. The Nationals have bolstered their pen (we think) and heated up. The Crew and Braves have begun cooling, while the Rattlers and Rockers are attempting to pull out of freefalls quickly if they hope to keep the Dodgers within sight. Check here for all past days' OPLs, starting with the All Star Break. We'll track these values over the course of the regular season, so that when the playoffs draw near, you'll be able to see which teams are peaking at the right time, which are flat-lining and which are cooling off.

You can read across to garner a team's performance over multiple timeframes, or read up & down to compare teams over these same timeframes. Below each league is a synopsis of every team's OPL. I'll be posting these standings every day for the remainder of the regular season. As the playoff races heat up, you can track which teams are heating up accordingly, which are flatlining and which are fading.
