Thought you might find this interesting. It sorts in descending order by the far right column, run differential (Runs scored - runs allowed) for the 2nd half. The first half is listed as well. Some teams are clearly improving (higher differential the 2nd half) while others aren't.

Very cool research... Yeah, the Phils and the Dodgers seem to be coasting to the playoffs rather than winning their way in.
