NL Mediocrity watch, continued

You would almost get the idea these guys were a winning team.

Padres win the NL West

Their record upon clinching the NL Mediocrity Division title: 79-79.

With four games left—one against the Giants and three against the Dodgers—the Padres need to sweep to avoid the mantle of the worst playoff team ever. The 1973 New York Mets won 82 games, but lost “only” 79 (there was a rainout that was not made up). The Padres have already lost 79, and so losing only one of their remaining four would put them at .506, just behind those ’73 Mets (.509).

They have to go 1-3 to be the first team in the playoffs with a losing record. Can they do it? Keep the faith.
