If you're the Philadelphia Phillies, that's your winning percentage after 18,810 games. Ten-thousand of those games have not resulted in wins for the Phils. They hit the milestone today with a 10-2 shellacking by the Cardinals. 10,000 losses only gets you one championship (1980) and over a century of hard luck. Who's next?
Atlanta has 9,681 losses going into today's action, but they have 9,661 wins
How about the American League? The Orioles of Baltimore have the league lead with 8,629
Your Indians? We have a .511 winning percentage with an all-time record of 8,433-8,067
Anyone past 10,000 wins? Yup, and just one team has done it... the San Fran Giants have 10,151.
You gotta love the oddities and examinations of milestones like all-time franchise wins.
