    Default Pirates losing streak reaches 15 yrs.

    After tonight's loss, the Pittsburgh Pirates will finish the season below .500 for the 15th straight year.

    I believe this is the longest current losing streak in any major pro sport.

    Brother Ground & Pound,
    Man, I thought my Giants had it bad with the past 3 years! Hard to believe this is the once proud and mighty organization of Clemente, Stargell, Van Slyke, Bonilla, Bonds, Al Oliver, Dock Ellis, Manny Sanguillan, Bob Moose, The Candyman, Dave Cash, Bill Mazaroski, tough old Danny Murtaugh.... Disgraceful! What happened?

    I think part of the problem is that the owners are still making money despite their losing.

    PNC Park is a great place to watch a game, even when the home team sucks.

    They are always giving stuff away or having fireworks shows and free concerts.

    The owners don't need to spend money on players to turn profit, so losing is fine with them.
