For basically the entire season, the dregs of Mlb have been the Washington Nationals, the North park Padres, and the Seattle Mariners. These three teams have been losing consistently since April, falling out of contention early and locking up spots within the cellar by mid-summer. All three happen to be nearly equally inept as well, engaging in a chase of sorts for the first overall selection in next years draft, widely known as the Strasburg Sweepstakes, named following the University of San Diego Morgan Moses Jersey right-hander of the same name who is the early leader to visit number 1 next summer.

However, during the last week, something strange has happened the 3 teams Chris Thompson Jersey have ignited and attempted to exit the race for worst.

Last Monday, the Padres welcomed the first place Diamondbacks and promptly swept them, winning 4-2, 9-2, and 5-4. Colorado came into town for any weekend series and won the very first game on Friday night 9-4, but then lost through the same score on Saturday and fell 2-1 yesterday. Over the last week, the Padres have won five of the six contests, just the third time this year theyve pulled that off.

Not to become outdone, the Mariners were able to take a couple of three from the to begin with Twins in Seattle to begin the week, then flew to Cleveland and swept the Doug Williams Jersey red hot Indians, who had won 10 games consecutively. When combined with a set win from the As before Minnesota found town, the Mariners have now won seven of the last nine games.

And finally, the Nationals, the clear favorite to finish with baseballs worst Ronald Patrick Jersey record, and the most consistently horrible team in baseball this year. A minimum of, until last week. , the Dodgers rolled into the nations capitol fighting for their playoff lives and left with no win. Atlanta arrived for any weekend series and didnt fare any better, as Washingtons putrid offense exploded for 24 runs within the three game series. When combined with the 11 run improvement in the finale against LA, Washington has tallied up 35 runs in their last four games they scored 26 runs during a 12 game losing steak just a couple weeks ago.

Chris Carter Jersey Combined, the terrible trio is 16-2 within their last 18 games. Apparently, the only team that wants Strasburg is the Pittsburgh Pirates, who have now lost 10 in a row in a desperate make an effort to get into the mix. Obviously, with Scott Boras expected to advise Strasburg, they might not want the #1 pick either.
