Well, last evening our hapless Washington Nationals lost their 100th game of the season…an easy-to-understand measure of futility in a 162-game season. While the Phillies and Brewers are hoping to finish off the Mets and snare the last two spots in the NL playoffs, and the Twins and White Sox battle down to the wire in the AL Central, our Nats are fighting with the Seattle Mariners for worst record in baseball. Going into the last two games, the Mariners have lost 101 and the Nationals 100. That rainout for the Nats on Thursday evening, which won’t be replayed, may keep us out of the cellar!
Wait ’til next year.
