Inane and insignificant

For political pundits who think that there might be any connection between the results of the 2005 election and the outcome of a baseball game: statistically, New Jersey Democrats are more likely to win the governorship in years when the New York Yankees finish their season in first place. The Yankees have finished first eleven times in a gubernatorial election year, with the Democrats winning seven of those races. The Boston Red Sox have finished in first place three times in a year New Jerseyans were electing a Governor, and the Republicans won all three of those contests.
