A Pox On All Of Your Inter-League Play Houses!

Let's get it straight. We hate inter-league play. It has been a blemish on baseball since the idea was first hatched in 1997. It cheapens the World Series, puts an undue burden on American League teams (losing the DH in NL cities), and just generally messes with pennant races in both leagues. To make matters worse, there is now at least one inter-league contest every single day of the MLB season. For shame! Having said all of this, it appears that your Carmine Hose have the best inter-league mark since the start of the 2003 season—152-88—a .633 winning percentage. We don't care, we still hate it. The Red Sox embark on the start of 2016 inter-league play tonight in Atlanta.
