Top division in baseball?

This week in John Dewan's Stat of the Week (which is often a quick and fun diversion, and is highly recommended reading), he looked at which divisions were the best in baseball by tallying up their records in inter-divisional games (including interleague). Here are his results:
Division W L Pct.
AL West 137 118 .537
AL Central 154 137 .529
NL West 139 125 .527
NL East 129 135 .489
AL East 145 159 .477
NL Central 133 163 .449
I probably would have guessed that the AL Central would be the top dog, but the AL West is also a pretty strong division...

Is anyone surprised to see the NL Central at the bottom? ... makes the Reds record all the more embarrassing, I suppose..
