For Every Loser, There’s Two Winners

In baseball, this was true four days ago. Thanks to the Oakland A’s losing three games since then, the number of MLB teams with winning records dropped to nineteen (out of thirty). But earlier this week, only ten teams had more losses than wins–the last two teams in five of baseball’s six divisions. I’d be surprised if the percentage was ever lower in baseball history.

Of course it seems as if the Royals have more than half those losses. Last night’s debacle was … quite ordinary this season.

But it would be an interesting version of fandom hell: when your team is so bad, everybody else has a winning record. It’s almost happening this year.
