Congrats are in order, I think, for the Atlanta Braves.
The Marlins stopped Atlanta 3-1 today, the 10,000th loss in franchise history. Of course a team has to be around for a long time to reach such a dubious milestone and they are an original National League team, dating back to 1876.
The Braves started out in Boston, moved to Milwaukee in 1953 before heading to Atlanta in 1966.
A couple of things here. First off, who counted all these losses. Are they sure their math is correct. What if they lost 10,000 last week? Or they really are at 9,997 losses? Does the math guy figure, "Who cares if I'm off a few losses. Who's gonna check?"
Also, do all the former Braves, who are still living say, "Hey, I'm part of these 10,000 losses. I helped the cause!"
