Top 3 ? Yes. But after express it’s a big dropoff to number 2. That’s not typical of other years. 91 did pretty bad in the World Series. Without the machine kids they probably wouldn’t have qualified. Igloo didn’t even qualify. Igloo and 91 consistently get beat buy top teams.
I love LI lax and have been around the game 40 years, but I agree 2026 is odd with Express dominant and then a Massive drop off and no remote improvement in 91 over the years. My ‘26 isn’t a high level player but we have played all these teams and it’s an anomaly for sure. I have a ‘17, ‘19 and ‘22 who have seen it all and this is the worst level of play after Express I’ve ever seen for LI.
