Standings a year ago

The Dodgers had 45 wins at this point in the season a year ago but their actual place in the standing only varies by a few games.  Right now the Dodgers are in 2nd place,  2 1/2 games behind the Diamondbacks while last year even with ten extra wins they were only 1/2 game in front of the Diamondbacks and were tied with the Rockies for 1st place.

The biggest difference standing wise is that the 2017 Giants had already imploded on their way to a 64 win last place season.

This year the Giants already have 34 wins compared to only 26 last year and could conceivably contend if they don’t get swept up in the Dodger dinger maelstrom this weekend.
