Watch The Embarrassing Houston Astros Throw Away The Ball, And The Game (Video)

houston astros failThe Houston Astros are without a doubt the worst team in Major League Baseball, and we can prove it.

For exhibit A, we turn to their 36-74 record and their .327 winning percentage.  Not only is that good enough to place them last in the entire MLB, but it is a staggering 4.5 games worse than the second-last-place Colorado Rockies.

As for exhibit B, that takes us to last night’s game between the Astros and the Washington Nationals.  With the game tied 4-4 in the top of the 11th inning, Houston was in a good position to steal a game from the first-place Nats…

…and then this happened.

I’m not sure if there is a limit to the amount of errors you can hand out in one play, but if there is, I’m pretty sure the Astros exceeded it on this occasion.

Needless to say, Houston couldn’t rebound from that comedy of errors, losing the game by a final score of 5-4.
