ESPN's MLB page has a poll up asking viewers which team will be the next team in Major League baseball to lose its 10,000th game as a franchise. The choices are the Braves (9681 losses), Cubs (9425 losses), and Reds (9341 losses).
Only 47% of responders have voted for the Braves, presumably because they are a perennially good team and the Cubs and Reds are not. There's only one problem: the Braves are 276 losses "ahead" of the Cubs, with only 319 losses to go. The Cubs would have to lose at nearly twice the rate of the Braves for about the next five years to catch them. Even if the Braves play at a 100 win per season pace until their 10,000 loss and the Cubs play at a 100 loss per season pace until their 10,000 loss, the Braves will still get there first.
It will take an upset of epic proportions for the Braves not to be the next team to lose 10,000. For whatever reason, people are just too dumb to infer this from even the most cursory examinations of the numbers.
