Scats Now on Pace for 118 Losses

Our Washington Nationals now boast a .271 winning percentage and are on pace for a 44-118 record, which would be bad enough to rank them among the ten worst teams in the entire history of Major League Baseball.

Here's the current top bottom ten:
1. 1899 Cleveland Spiders: 20-134 (.130)
2. 1916 Philadelphia Athletics: 36-117 (.235)
3. 1935 Boston Braves: 38-115 (.248)
4. 1962 New York Mets: 40-120 (.250)
5. 1904 Washington Senators: 38-113 (.252)
6. 1919 Philadelphia Athletics: 36-104 .(257)
7. 1898 St. Louis Browns: 39-111 (.260)
8. 2003 Detroit Tigers: 43-119 (.265)
9. 1952 Pittsburgh Pirates: 42-112 (.273)
10. 1909 Washington Senators: 42-110 (.276)
Should the Scats lose to the Phillies again today, their winning percentage would fall to .265, good to tie the 2003 Detroit Tigers for the worst team since the '62 Mets. Should they lose today and get swept by the Giants, that would put them exactly on pace with those expansion Mets for the worst team in three-quarters of a century.

Detroit Tigers should be more patient & competitive enough to keep pace with the others. I really like them; they’ve always been my favourite teams in MLB. Just read about them here: http://www.tigersground.com
