According to Howard Eskin on 610 WIP the Phillies organization reached their 10,000 loss in the history of the franchise. You can never trust Eskin’s facts. The catch with his counting is that he includes the Worcester Brownstockings. I did some crack reporting and came up with this from Wikipedia:
Named for a verbal shorthand of their city of residence ("Philly"), the Phillies replaced the Worcester, Massachusetts Brown Stockings in the National League. However, the team was not relocated – the Worcesters were expelled from the league, and the new Phillies were given their spot.
So did the Phillies really reach 10,000 on Saturday against the Sox? I don’t know for sure, but I’m curious. I bet one of the stat guys such as A Citizen’s Blog would know some of the numbers.
