Four More Years

This season has been a disappointment for O’s fans, and a big disappointment for Nats fans. It’s stacked upon postseason frustration (and in the Nats’ case, failure), too, as the two have combined for four playoff births the past four years, but only one playoff series win. It’s all relative, though.

It was fairly recent — about five years, to be exact — that both teams were bottom-feeders and had been for a long, long time. But if you look at the past four years, from 2012 to today, the O’s have won more regular-season games than any other American League team, and the Nats have won eight more than that.

Here’s the full list, as best I can tell:

1. Cardinals — 372
2. Dodgers — 359
3. Nationals — 358
4. Orioles — 350

5. Yankees — 348
6. Angels — 343
7. Tigers — 342
8. Giants — 337
9. Royals — 336
10. Rangers and Rays — 334

(Thanks to Ken Rosenthal’s look at Baltimore tension for the heads up.)
