The St. Louis Cardinals and Tampa Bay Rays are living the high life these days. Of course, when teams enjoy a September comeback there is always the flip side. The Atlanta Braves and Boston Red Sox were looking really good coming into September, but have fallen on hard times. As I write this, they are coming into the last day of the season tied for the wild card in the National and American League respectively.
The Braves are 9-16 in September. The Cardinals are the best team in the National League in September. The combination has the Cardinals on the verge of the playoffs. The Red Sox would qualify as more of a collapse than the Braves with their 6-19 record. Yet, where will these horrible finishes finish among the all-time worst?
