Nats Reach a Double-Triple With 100th Loss

Posted by KilgoreTroutIII

For the second straight year the Natinals have lost more than 100 games, reaching the 100 mark Thursday and 101 Friday night to move within one of last year’s 102. They are only the fourth team in 25 years to accomplish the double-triple.

But have heart, struggling Nats fans. The Devil Rays lost 100 in 2001 and 106 in 2002. Six years later, after coming to Jesus and renaming themselves the Rays, they made it to the World Series in 2008. And the Tigers lost 225 games in 2002-03, but turned in a 95-67 record three years later. On the other hand, the 2004-05 Royals lost 210 games and only improved to 75-87 three years later. And so far this year they’re 63-91 with a chance to reach 99 losses.

After the signing of Stephen Strasburg, the best pitching prospect in a generation, and the probability of next year’s signing of Bryce Harper, possibly the best-ever-position-player draftee, the Nats have great hopes.
