Then there's the page for the 1969 Orioles, a great team reviled for losing to the Mets in the World Series. The O's won 109 games that year and supposedly lost to an inferior team. I believe the Mets won 100 games in the regular season that year.
I don't have the heart to look up the 2010 Orioles. I couldn't stomach the anguish.
