More Nationals History

From Jayson Stark at ESPN:

Adam Dunn has hit 16 home runs this year. That team he plays for, the Nationals, has won 13 games. So I know what you're wondering: Has there ever been a guy who had more homers in a season than his team had wins? And the answer: Heck, no. The Washington Times' Mark Zuckerman figured that one out, with the help of the Sultan of Swat Stats, SABR magician David Vincent.

See, this season may not a be a loss after all! The only thought I have is that Dunn seems to consistently finish at 40 homers... yeah, the '62 Mets may be breaking out the champagne.
