Jorge Lopez DFA by the Mets. He could come cheap, BOB could just pay him in baseball gloves. Maybe they'll take TellezTubby off our hands, the Mets liked our other chubaseman so much in Vogelbach.

19 of the 30 MLB teams have a losing record, and 1 is sitting at .500. Every team has played at least 62 games, meaning the season is under 100 games left.

That's quite shocking to me

I too find it odd. Parity comes to mind but that is a joke in MLB. If it stays this way it will make the Playoff race more exciting.

I'd love to here the explanation on that one.

There are currently 5 teams on pace to lose 100 or more games, which I believe would be a new record. There is an old thread on Reddit where someone had the research down, and others were able to make it more accurate. Using that info, and if it's correct, there have been 5 seasons with 4 teams losing 100 or more games, to include each of the last 4 full seasons: 2002, 2019, 2021, 2022, 2023.

Tanking has become an artform.

Bucs made it twice 2021 and 2022. Terrible time to be a Buc fan. Can't recall the 2023 record but I remember it being a much better season. We came close to 80 wins I think. We would have had a 3 peat if not for Covid. 2020 we were well on our way to 100 loss season.

I finally read the reason for that incident. That was funny.

Except for the bucs, everyone else in the NL Central lost last night.
One win and the bucs went from last to 2nd.
Life is good :lol: :lol:

Everyday during the season, I have two wishes: for the Pirates to win and for the Hated Brewers to lose. I'm going to enjoy these 24 hours.
