The Clubhouse / Worst Washington Baseball Team
« Last post by welch on Today at 03:37:21 PM »
This season has gotten me to wonder if it is the worst Washington professional ball team. I had thought that the 1955 team was the worst: 53 wins, 101 losses. Look into the team, and see that it had potential: Mickey Vernon, still hitting over .300 with at 37. Roy Sievers broke the Nats' home run record, with 25 homers, 106 RBIs, .853 OPS. Eddie Yost at 3B -- "a good glove man with some pop", Dad always said; "just warning track power", says people who just look at a few numbers, forgetting that the LF fence was about 405 feet on the line. Pete Runnels seemed to have lost some enthusiasm, enthusiasm he regained when Calvin Griffith traded him to Boston in what seems to have been a salary dump. Runnels then won the AL batting titles a couple times. Jim Busby, a fine CF and, before this season, a .290 hitter. A young bench player, nineteen-year old Harmon Killebrew, and another, a bit older than nineteen, Jim Lemon. Clint "Scrap Iron" Courtney, who shared catching with Eddie Fitzgerald. Starting pitchers Dean Stone, who had been the young hope but began to slip; Bob Porterfield, who had won 22 games in 1953 but was sliding; and Mickey McDermott, who was competent. However that team had a couple of young starters, named Pedro Ramos (age 20) and the future great Camilo Pascual (age 21).

The '55 Nats were probably better than this team.

Has Davey put on some weight? Not that I blame him.

So this must be why Abbot never quite made it before...

Unwatchable
Enjoyable for me. The Nats are doing what they can for the fans of other NL East teams.

Turn on the game. First three batters: Home Run, Double, Home Run. Turn off the game.
