To determine how many games the second place team is behind the first place team, find the difference in wins of the two teams, the difference of the number of losses of the two teams, add those two numbers together and then divide by two. Example A: The first place team's Won/Loss record is 40-20 and the second place team's record is 38-22. (40 - 38) + (22 - 20) / 2 is the same as (2 + 2) / 2 which equal 2. The second place team is 2 games behind the first place team. Example B: The first place team's Won/Loss record is 40-20 and the second place team's record is 37-22. (40 - 37) + (22 - 20) / 2 is the same as (3 + 2) / 2 which equal 2.5. The second place team is 2 and a halfgames behind the first place team.

How are ties figured into standings for baseball?

They aren't because baseball games never end in a tie. The game is played until someone wins - even if it has to be rescheduled for another day to "finish" it.


How can a baseball team lead by a half game in the standings?

IF THE SEASON STARTED TODAY, AND THE YANKEES WON, AND THE RED SOX DIDN'T PLAY YET THE LEAD WOULD BE HALF A GAME, IF THE SOX PLAYED THE NXT DAY, AND LOST, AND THE YANKEES DID NOT PLAY , THE SOX WOULD BE 1 FULL GAME BEHIND, 1-0 VS 0-1. SO EACH GAME IS A HALF A GAME IN THE STANDINGS UNTIL THE OTHER TEAM COMPLETES ITS GAME.

Of course. Especially if they're desperately trying to hide their true colors, then life itself is one big game. They're faking it the whole time. They just don't want to be figured out. And just when you think you've figured them out, you realize you haven't.

What happens if game ends in a tie?

Before a tie in any game, there is an extra "overtime" period, which is essentially another quarter or period of the game. If there is still a tie after this, there may be a second overtime, or tie listed in the standings.
