Winning Percentages for the 30 MLB Teams

Below is a snapshot of the franchise win-loss records (regular season) for the 30 MLB teams, as of June 6,2017. You can find the updated totals at http://www.baseball-reference.com/teams The Padres have the worst franchise record, especially when you consider that Tampa’s win % is hampered by being a fairly new team.

The Yankees are the only team a long ways above or below .500. It is surprising to see the Giants with the second best win %, but also to see that even renowned franchises, like the Cardinals, have only a .52 win %. Would you have guessed that the White Sox, Pirates, and Tigers have won more than half their games, or that the Orioles are still a long ways below .500?
