If every game is 50/50, then my quick math shows the odds of all sweeps as roughly 7 in a million. Pretty impressive indeed!

Can we get the regular season standings?

Edit for quick math:

Assuming both teams have a 50% chance to win each game:
A 3 game series has a 1/4 chance of ending in a sweep.
A 4 game series has a 1/8 chance of ending in a sweep.

That makes the total chance of a swept playoffs (1/4)^4 * (1/8)^3, or 1 in 131072, or 7.63 in a million.

Obviously the chances are a bit higher if the teams aren't all equal. If the better team has a 55% chance to win each game, the odds go up to 10.23 in a million.

In one of my solo leagues (all 7-game sets) I went 9-0 then lost 4 to lose the WS 4-1. That one still bugs me.

So much for personality. Albert Belle, a complete nut job was never traded and was the highest paid player in the game, twice!
