Franchise Win-Loss Records

A fun article about each team's alltime win-loss records. Some interesting nuggets:

- The Mets obviously got off to an awful start as franchise, but that's not the only reason their all-time record isn't good. Even since 1968, they're below .500.

- The Phillies actually spent about 40 years as a winning franchise, but they are now about 1200 games under .500. As the author points out, this probably means that none of us will live to see the Phillies have a winning record.

- The Cubs, the lovable losers, have never had a losing all-time record in their entire history, going back to 1876.

This article only covers current NL teams - I'll link to the second part when it's up.
