The front page of today’s New York Times website features an article by Jere Longman on the Phillies approaching the magical number of 10,000 loses.
In fact, no team has ever stunk so often as the Phillies, who,
according to the Elias Sports Bureau, have lost more games than any
professional franchise in any sport. The Phillies are 14 losses from a
particular threshold of ignominy — the 10,000th defeat for a club that
has won one lonely World Series title (in 1980) during its 125 years of
often dreadful existence.
“I didn’t know this until a week ago,” Manager Charlie Manuel said before the Phillies defeated the White Sox, 3-0, on Monday.
Now who is shocked that Charlie didn’t know something?
