Considering the lack of talent that Detroit has, is it possible that this currently 1-17 team can make a run at the '62 Mets as the Worst Team Ever in major league baseball? Now, the '88 Orioles got off to a worse start than Detroit, but at least they had Murray and Ripken, and they were able to go 54-108. Even if the Tigers do surpass the '62 Mets win total, they could still be the worst non-first year team in baseball history.
And just think, a few years ago when they were getting ready to move into their new stadium, the Tigers kept mentioning they were following the blue print of the Indians, who got good just in time for the opening of the Jacobs Field. I guess the Tigers made a few minor errors along the road to that goal.
And the sad thing is, in the 80's, I was concerned more when the Red Sox faced Detroit than when they faced the Yankees. Even into the early 90's when they had the homer or strike out bunch, at least they were entertaining. Now, they are bad and boring, the worst combination possible.

At least the 88 Orioles were in the games they lost. I believe the Tigers have had a lead for seven innings the entire season(that counts the game they won).

To be fair, they have some good young arms that are actually pitching decently. Th problem is that they can't hit anything. There are only 5 guys on the whole team who are hitting above .200. Dimitri Young is hitting .176. Coupled with the fact that they can't hit homers and the defense is sucking it, and of course they're shitty. They're actually starting to lose closer games, so maybe they can kinda turn it around. It pains me to say it, but I'm pretty sure a AAA team could beat the Tigers at this point.

The Mets went 40-120 in their first season, the worst record in the 20th century, though the Tigers are well on their way.

The problem isn't that Dimitri Young is hitting .176.

It's the fact that .176 raises the team batting average. These guys are bad. Their pitching is average, at best, and that's being generous. They can't hit, they can't field. I feel sorry for their fans.

Isn't that barely above (or even slightly below) the NL pitcher's averages?

The Tigers would have to stay on this pace all year to approach the 1899 Cleveland Spiders who finished at 20-134. If I remember correctly, they had no home stadium and they played all their games as "away" games. That is the all-time standard for bad baseball right there. 20-134.

This isn't all that different from the Expos. But hey, Montreal is in first place! Woo!

I thought the Red Sox bullpen was the all-time standard for bad baseball...
