Ehh? Yankees have 9774 wins. Only the Giants, Cubs, Braves and now the Reds have 10000 or more.

Wow.. Cincinnati's getting praised for something. Mark the day in history folks!

Congrats to the Reds for such a notable milestone.

But it is beginning to look like it is going to be a long sad year for this Cubs fan.

The Cubs got there first. Sixteen pennants in 70 years before it all went tits-up.

WOOT!

Chapman has been sick.

Still not as funny as the Red Sox losing the 100th anniversary game in Fenway to the freaking Yankees.

And I hate the Yankees.

Correct. The Yankees need to average a whopping 11.8 wins over the next 19 years to match Cincy's pace.

Ehh, Philly still holds the milestone for first team to 10000 losses. So there!

Funny enough, yesterday was also the Cubs' 96th anniversary in Wrigley (nee Wheegman) Field. They just had to lose; the stars were aligned.

The Phillies have the most losses of any professional sports team in any sport in any league in any country ever.

You forgot the Dodgers

They got reset to zero when they left Brooklyn. Actually, same applies to Giants and Braves.

So, only the Cubs, Cardinals and Reds have made it!!!

Well, that's what several billion dollars in additional payroll will get you over the course of a century.

As I understand it, the point of professional sports is to pay players who will help you win games.

A lot of people are calling for him to go into the rotation. I don't know if it's worth it. I think I'd rather have a rocket armed closer you can trust, and find another way to shore up the rotation. But it's possible he could be another ace, and that could win you more games in the long run.

Of course it usually takes more than one run to win a game regardless of who's pitching, which this year's Reds don't seem to understand. Seriously, you lose 6-1 to the Cubs? And this is the 7th time in 14 games you only score one farking run? With that lineup? God damn it...

I have to be honest. Part of me now thinks they may actually finish behind Houston. They are just awful. I figured Houston would end up with the worst record in the National League on their way out the door, but I think the Cubs will give them a run for their money.

Who would have expected Yankee fan to dick up a thread that has nothing to do with them?
 
2012-04-21 05:20:18 PM
Whoa...the Cubs actually won today, but even up five they put in their closer just to be on the safe side.

Yeah, but it's fake baseball, and there's no pride in that.

I was at a cousin's wedding reception watching that game at the bar outside when they reached 10k. We cheered.

Technically, the Cardinals do not count the wins prior to 1892 because they date the origin of the current franchise to their first year in the National League. I think it's silly, but if you try to tell them they passed that milestone they beg off like Ric Flair before a blatant low blow.
