08/26/2004: Dubious achievements department:
The Arizona Diamondbacks are the first team in either league to be "mathematically eliminated"--i.e., there is no possible chance of their making the postseason.
Are congratulations in order?
(I'll note that with only a mere 39 wins as of yesterday, it's still not mathematically impossible for them to lose 100 games this season.)
