‘130-Loss Pace’ How Far Has OAK Fallen? ‘Worst Team Ever’

The 1962 New York Mets are considered the worst single-season team in Major League Baseball history. In their inaugural year, the Mets went 40-12 for a .250 winning percentage.

That record is likely to be changed this season by the Oakland Athletics. Oakland’s winning percentage has dropped back into the single digits. They are on pace for 130 losses on the season.

The A’s hosted the Miami Marlins on April 5 at Marlins Park in Miami, Florida.

The A’s jumped out to a 5-1 lead early in the game, but their bullpen collapsed in the middle and late innings, resulting in a 5-7 loss. It was their fourth straight loss and second in their last 10 games.

The loss puts Oakland at 12-49 for a .197 winning percentage. Their run differential is a whopping -212. They are separated from the first-place Texas Rangers by 364 points.

That ranks them 30th overall out of the 30 teams in the majors. It’s also more than a full win percentage point worse than the 29th-place Kansas City Royals (0.305).

Oakland ranks dead last in key metrics, including team ERA of 0.670, team batting average of .218, and OPS of 0.647. In other words, they’re not the best offense.

Still, their .197 winning percentage and 130-loss pace is unreal. While 100-loss teams are relatively common in Major League Baseball history, 110 losses are rare.

The A’s are also dead last in team attendance. Through five days, the A’s have averaged just 8675 fans at home.토토사이트

The A’s will now host the Pittsburgh Pirates and Milwaukee Brewers for three games each starting on the 6th, followed by a four-game series against the Tampa Bay Rays starting on the 13th.

Pittsburgh, Milwaukee, and Tampa Bay are teams that have been playing well this season. It’s entirely possible for Oakland to slip further.
