Tracking down the all-time Washington teams:
2012: August 21: 77 - 46
1933: August 20: 77 - 38
1925: August 28: 77 - 45
This team has caught the 1925 team, one of the all-time best with Bucky Harris, Walter Johnson, Joe Judge, Sam Rice, Goose Goslin.
This team is about four games behind the 1933 team, Joe Cronin's "wrecking crew" that demolished the Ruth/Gehrig Yankees
The bull.pen has had some rest. Detwiler pitches and the Braves had trouble with Detwiler last time. I want a win.
