With tonight's really, truly embarrassingly awful loss to the Yankees (chrissake can't anybody play this game??), the Nationals now have a .258 winning percentage. That puts us on pace for the 7th worst record in the 140-year history of Major League Baseball.
By the end of this series in the Bronx, we could reach #4, tied with the 1962 New York Mets. By the end of interleague play, we could catch the 1916 Philadelphia A's, the second-worst team ever.
Thankfully, we'd still be several weeks of non-stop losing before we catch the worst team ever, the 1899 Cleveland Spiders. Oh, thank god for the Spiders.
