Worst lineup ever, in the history of ever?
Seriously, let us know in the comments if you can ever remember seeing a worse lineup than that one (or can dig one up somewhere like Retrosheet).
I think that lineup’s collective OBP must be something like .280.
Update: Hahaha, wow, the Mets scored 10 runs with this lineup since I posted this!
Baseball is indeed a strange and beautiful game.
Don’t get too excited though – it doesn’t mean this isn’t still one of the worst lineups ever.
