      Wow I didn't realize the 96 Tigers staff was so pathetic. The staff ERA+ was 80, which is actually lower than the 1930 Phillies who had an ERA+ of 81.

      The 1899 Cleveland Spiders had a staff ERA+ of 58, but they don't really count as a real team.

        1905 & 1906 Boston Beaneaters have to rank among the worst.

          1935 Boston Braves team ERA+: 77

          Nuff said.
          46 wins to match last year's total

              The 1915 A's had a staff ERA+ of 68, even with guys like Joe Bush, Bob Shawkey, and Herb Pennock.

                I think you mean the 1899 Spiders.
                Any what's wrong with a team 1.88 WHIP anyway?

                    The play in the field and the offense at the plate had a lot to do with their records. Look deeper.

                        Wow, way to try to learn something. Take your own advice
                        1875 Washington wasn't such a good pitching staff

                          They could take the 1873 Baltimore staff (a team that had the worst pitching ever and impossibly enough the worst offense also [single digit team OPS+?????!!!]).

                              Yea i hardly think a team which played 6 games can be called the worst ever. Although the 1974 team werent exactly brilliant they did have Jack Manning who posted a 147 OPS+ to go with a 91 ERA+.
