#5) 1993 San Diego Padres (61-101)
The fifth worst Major League Baseball team during the 90s, the 1993 San Diego Padres. This Padres team had some talent on their roster, but at a time when only two teams from each league would earn births to the postseason, the Padres fell out of contention early and traded away two of their best hitters, Fred McGriff and Gary Sheffield and traded their best starting pitcher Greg Harris. But this decision to rebuild led the Padres to a couple of division titles in ’96 and ’98.
#4) 1993 New York Mets (59-103) Yes, the 1993 Mets had injuries and performed well below expectations, but the drama away of the diamond proabably took a toll. Bobby Bonilla had a well-documented heated exchange with a reporter, Bret Saberhagen filled a Super Soaker with bleach and sprayed it at reporters and Vicne Coleman tossed a firecracker toward autograph seekeers. In addition, pitcher Anthony broke a record by losing 27 straight decisions despite not really pitching that bad.
#3) 1991 Cleveland Indians (57-105) The 1991 Cleveland Indians were a bad team on offense. This team scored 576 runs in 1991, which was the lowest in the all of major league baseball that season despite playing with a DH.
#2) Before there was the Houston Astros, who blew everything up, started from scratch, then won a World Series, there was the Florida Marlins. After practically buying a World Series in 1997, the Marlins did not have the finances to keep many of their best players, and thus had a fire sale. The 1998 Marlins youth movement went winless against 3 teams, but would later go on to win the 2003 World Series.
The worst Major League Baseball Team during the 90s, the 1996 Detroit Tigers. On offense, this team had power and could score runs, but the pitching was historically bad. The 1996 Tigers gave up 1,103 runs which is a post-World War 2 record. The 1996 Detroit Tigers were also outscored by an incredible 320 runs.
#2) 1998 Florida Marlins (54-108)
#1) 1996 Detroit Tigers (53-109)
