Teams over 500?

After looking at the Red Sox record against teams that were currently over 500 earlier this year, I was pretty depressed to see they were only winning half of those games. But I decided to revisit and recalculate their record and I'm happy to report their record has improved. Maybe it's just the teams they were losing to have losing records now, but they are now 30-19 against teams with winning records as of this morning. In fact, they only have a losing record against the Yanks and the St Louis.
NYY 6-7, ATL 2-1 CLE 4-2 LAA 6-3, MIN 4-2, OAK 4-2, PHI 3-0, STL 1-2

Mind, they also have losing records when facing Tor, Balt and the Cubs (they are tied with Seattle). Considering they will probably be facing the Angels, Oakland or Cleveland in the first round (as things stand, now), this makes me feel a little bit better.

In other news:
It has been reported that Red Auerbach has been hospitalized and is on a ventilator. May God bless him, his family and friends in this time of need. Pictured: Red and Bill Russel.
