Pacific vs Central League Leaders

Discussion in the Open Talk forum
Pacific vs Central League Leaders
As I look over the leaders for the respective divisions, I see that the Pacific stat leaders are heads above the Central stat leaders. What gives? Is the Pacific really that good? Even the pitchers seem to be just as good or better than the Central, which you wouldn't expect because the hitting seems to be better. What are some factors that play into this discussion or am I just off base into looking into the leaders too much?

As an example, none of the Pacific has leading hitters are hitting under .310 on the leader board while the Central goes down to .289. Not the much of a difference but if you look at the numbers you'll see what I'm saying.

Sorry if this has already been discussed.

Maybe the average to replacement level players in the PL are worse than those in the CL?

No, this is a good question that I have been wondering about, too. I mean, the Central only has 4 players batting over .300!? What gives?
