one game away

POST #    408

last night, the detroit tigers lost for the 119th time, which puts them one game away from tying the modern era's record for losses. that record was set by the lovable 1962 mets, not a bumbling team of AA and AAA players. the new york times has an article on the loss from last night.

they note in the article that there are a few things that are working in detriot's favor. earlier this week, they won three straight, and now they are playing the playoff bound twins. since the twins have already clinched their spot and more wins won't help their situation any, they are resting their regular players. the weather is also cooperating with them. rain is scheduled for the detroit area, which might cause a rain out of games tonight or tomorrow. if that happens, they won't be making them up since they won't change the post season landscape.

we'll see if the tigers can hold off loss number 120.

i've written about this many times.
