So we all thought that the Baltimore Orioles were the worst team in Major League Baseball, they aren’t The Detroit Tigers have flown under the radar and will likely beat out the Orioles for the number one picks.
The Orioles (49-100) are in the middle of a four-game series at Detroit (44-104) that matches the teams with the two worst records in baseball. Baltimore won two of the first three, so that leaves the Orioles unlikely to finish behind the Tigers.
As far as those two teams have sunk, they figure to have company in the triple-digit-losses club. Miami (52-97) and Kansas City (55-95) are on pace to reach 100 defeats, and Toronto (59-91) could end up there, too.
There are however teams that will reach triple digits but in wins. This season, the Houston Astros (98-53), New York Yankees (98-53) and LA Dodgers (97-54) will likely get there, and Atlanta Braves (93-58) and Minnesota Twins (91-58) could also reach triple-digit victories. Even Oakland A’s (90-60) suddenly has a shot after six straight wins.
Last year, there were three 100-win teams and three 100-loss teams. The only other year with at least three of each since the 1962 expansion was 2002, when the Yankees, Oakland and Atlanta reached 100 wins and Kansas City, Milwaukee, Detroit and Tampa Bay reached 100 defeats.
