    Nationals were 19-31 before going on to win a World Series. That and the AL Central being trash are the only things keeping my hope alive for a Twins playoff appearance.

    The list I had only included the “modern” era. The Spiders should really be excluded from all the futility records. They were the product of an owner having two teams in the league and trading everyone to the better team. They outlawed owning multiple teams as a result. I’m not sure why that wasn’t a rule to begin with, since it doesn’t take much foresight to see that an owner would stack one team if another started to falter.

    In NCAA softball it is calculated using 7 as the multiplier.
    TIL. Makes sense.

    Mets announcer Howie Rose has been talking about Indians pitcher Justin Bieber all night. It's a bit like the latter days of Ralph Kiner.

    They won again 11-0 today against Mizzou in 6 innings. So they’re up to 32 shutouts and 25 mercy wins.

    NCAA softball tournament started yesterday. Last year's Oklahoma team had an argument for best team ever, and this year's team is making an even stronger argument. They came in with a 51-1 record, the only loss being a 4-3 defeat at Baylor. They lead the nation in the following:

    .368 batting average
    .462 on base percentage, .038 better than the second place team, which is larger than the gap between 2nd and 33rd.
    .665 slugging percentage, .083 better than the second place team, larger than the gap between 2nd and 25th.
    1.92 doubles per game
    1.81 home runs per game
    8.13 runs per game, 1.15 better than the second place team, which is larger than the gap between 2nd and 25th.
    .86 ERA, a half run better than the second place team, which is larger than the gap between 2nd and 12th.
    30 shutouts, eight more than the 2nd place team, which is larger than the gap between 2nd and 16th.
    .988 fielding percentage
    30 shutouts

    They’re now 52-1 after another mercy rule win over Hofstra 11-0 last night.
    That's.... insane
