CONGRATS to the Cincinnati Reds on becoming baseball's latest member in the "10,000-Win Club". Last night, the Reds (6-8) defeated the Chicago Cubs (3-11) by a 9-4 score to earn the milestone win. The Cubs, themselves, are already members of the exclusive club. Obviously if major-league baseball sticks around long enough, sooner or later, every team will achieve their 10,000th win but considering it takes over a century to win that many games, it's safe to say, many teams won't be doing it during our lifetime, that's for sure.
