Lopsided Interleague

How does one league get so much better than the other? The American League's dominance of the National League in Interleague play is embarassing to the senior circuit.

Heading into Monday, the AL was a ridiculous 103-64 against the NL this season. Is the HGH stronger in the AL?

Is it possible that there isn't a single National League team better than the Boston Red Sox, New York Yankees, Chicago White Sox and Detroit Tigers? Who would you take ahead of any of them? The Mets? No. The Cardinals? No.

If there was an AP Top 25 in the baseball, wouldn't the four AL teams listed above have to be at least in the top five? Oh, and nevermind the Twins, A's and Blue Jays, who could be first-place teams in NL Divisions.

At this point, you have to wonder: would the AL teams win more or less than 103 times if they played 167 games against Triple A all-star teams?
