MLB: First team to win 10 games… does it mean anything?

MLB: First team to win 10 games… does it mean anything?

Hyped by on April 12, 2012 Website:

The 2012 Major League Baseball season is barely a week old, but here’s a question to ponder: Does being the first team in your league to win 10 games mean anything when it comes to end-of-the-season success?

Last season, being the first team to reach 10 wins had very different results in the American League and National League. The Rangers were the first A.L. team to 10 wins and made it to the World Series eventually losing to the St. Louis Cardinals. In the N.L., the Colorado Rockies were the first team to 10 wins; they ended the 2011 campaign at 73-89 and fourth place in the N.L. West.
