The season ending series between the Astros and Cubs marks the first time in 50 years that two teams with 100 losses have faced eachother.

Cubs fans may remember that the last time this happened they were also involved in it. That year the Cubs finished up with the team for the ages the 1962 NY Mets.

As the Old Professor used to say "Can't anyone here play this game?"

I caught a few minutes of the Padres radio broadcast last night and the announcer mentioned that this Padres team is the first since 1900, I believe, to have 3 different players catch at least 50 games. I know that the schedule went from 154 games to 162 games sometime in the 60's. Did they even play 150 games in a season back in 1900? I think the announcer just meant "a really long time" and not exactly 1900 but I was wondering.

At least they've got that going for them.
