When they went to the World Series in the late 90s?

Perhaps the Padres don't qualify for the title of "Worst Franchise" because when they are bad, the local fans still have the weather, etc...

The worst franchise has to be the Mariners. They haven't ever made the World Series. They haven't made the Playoffs since 2001. They are trying to hold off the A's for the honor of losing the WC game to the Yankees or Red Sox.

Since the Mariners last Playoff series, the Angels won the World Series in 2002 and made the Playoffs in 2004, 2005, 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2014. How many franchises have either won a World Series or made the Playoffs 7 times since 2001? I count 11, 10 teams have won the WS (Giants, Cards, Red Sox more than once) and 4 teams with more Playoffs (Yankees, Cardinals, Red Sox and Dodgers with only the Dodgers not winning a WS). The Angels are not even in the discussion for worst, they are easily a top 10 franchise.

The Padres were in the Playoffs in 2005 & 2006 and have played in 2 World Series. The Brewers were in the Playoffs in 2008 & 2011 and have played in one World Series. So, my list would be 1)Mariners, 2)Brewers and 3)Padres.

Albert Pujols, of the Angels hit HR #631 yesterday to pass Ken Griffey on the all time list. Did anybody hear about it? Nothing but crickets. A missed opportunity for the Angels to be in the spotlight. Maybe I missed it. Their inaction is possibly related to their futility. It would have been a big time celebration if he was still wearing the birds on the bat.

My vote goes to the Wilpon era Mets, worst ownership in baseball.

The Angels are FAR from the worst franchise in baseball.

OP was made with a degree of sarcasm …. to have a player of Trout's magnitude and to make the playoffs ONCE, not having a farm system, and not doing anything to make the team any better while he is there (not for much longer?) then you have a really, truly bad franchise

When the Pudres brain trust decided trading Rizzo for Cashner was a smart move, that should tell you all you need to know about how inept this team's ownership is. Effing Cashner??? WTF?? Surprise they never tried trading Gwynn for some magic beans.

So signing Ohtani is doing nothing?

Why is just passing one guy worth of a big time celebration? It's not a major milestone like his 3000th hit and 600th homer which were events.

I'm a reds fans and they break my heart year in and year out with bonehead trades such as Aroldis Chapman and giving up a ton of great prospects for matt latos.
