White Sox, Cubs combine for record number of losses


Entering the last Saturday of the season, the Chicago White Sox and Chicago Cubs had combined for 192 losses – reaching a record level for the city. Both teams will finish in last place in the same season for the first time since 1948, when they were a combined 115-191, the previous benchmark for Chicago futility. Things didn’t get much better in ’49, either, with the teams improving only to a combined 124-184. The Cubs and White Sox combined for a .389 winning percentage in ’48 and ’49, one level down from the hell that has been the .400 combined winning percentage this year (entering Saturday). –Chicago Tribune
