Futility Watch: The Marlins are two games behind the 1962 Mets

Mentioned this in ATH, but it’s worth keeping more formal tabs on this as the season progresses:

  • Record of the 1962 New York Mets through 52 games: 15-37;
  • Record of the 2013 Houston Astros through 52 games: 15-37;
  • Record of the 2013 Miami Marlins through 52 games: 13-39.

On the bright side, the Mets had losing streaks of 11 and 13 games ahead of them later in the 1962 season, so the Marlins have a chance to “catch up.”
