Pirates set mark with 17th straight losing season

" 17 consecutive seasons, 17 without a winner.

Until Monday, no team in the four major North American pro team sports had experienced such a string of misery. Itís happened now to the Pirates, who are fielding what some in the game are calling a Triple-A team thatís trying to compete alongside the Cubs and Cardinals.

Not very well, either.

  Pittsburgh, Home of Champions, and the Pirates !!!

What that article fails to mention is that, actually, there was a team that has suffered an even worse string of misery, they just missed the dubious historical distinction that the Pirates have now claimed: the same Phillies team that previously held the 16-year mark also had a fluke season that they finished 78-76 after an unexpected win in the last season game, because that season was amidst 31 consecutive losing seasons, split in half by a single fluke season.

Doesn't make 17 any better, but I wish they'd do a little more research instead of just throwin that in there
