The Mets and Mariners have each started their season this year by going 4-11. Since 1988, how many teams have lost 11+ of their first 15 games?
Here's the list -
Amazingly, the 2007 Phillies went on to win the N.L. East in 2007 (partly thanks to the Mets). And, the 2001 A's went on to win 102 games that season. So, such a start is not always bad news. But, for the most part, it's usually a sign that your team stinks.
