Gratuitous Nats Posting (TM) - Countdown To Ignominy* Division


After dropping games last night and this afternoon to get swept by the Cubbies, the Nats' magic number is now 56.

(*That is to say, for those of you not yet aware, finishing the season with 121 or more losses, thus beating the '62 Mets.)

You need to see the Michael J. Fox documentary on optimism. (There is a great segment on the Cubs and their 100-year-plus lack of a World Series win.)

Optimism is a good thing. But I'm not sure hoping to beat the '62 Mets' record qualifies...
