Don't look now, but the division of baseball once called the NL Worst is now the National League's winningest division.
Led by the Los Angeles Dodgers, the NL West leads all NL divisions with a .515 winning percentage (184-173). The 6 team NL Central is next at .497 (210-212) and the much lauded NL East, home of the defending World Series Champion Phillies, brings up the rear at .466 (164-188)
Only the AL East, home of the Yankees, Red Sox and defending AL Pennant winner Rays have a better winning percentage than the NL West at .538 (184-173)
