There’s a decent chance that at some time this week no Central League team will have a winning record.

Heading into Tuesday’s games there’s only one, the Yomiuri Giants, and they’re teetering on the brink at 35-34. Meanwhile, the Hanshin Tigers are 33-33; the Yokohama BayStars are three games under .500 at 32-35-1 and riding a 12-game losing streak; the Chunichi Dragons are 32-36-1; the Hiroshima Carp are 30-35; and the 30-36-1 Tokyo Yakult Swallows bring up the rear.
