Pirates Reach Historic Lows

Pittsburgh Pirates put together worst losing streak in over 100 years.

While the Kansas City Royals have had the worst record in baseball (right now, they are tied with the Pirates), the Pirates just got swept by them. As the article says, they used to win. In 1979, the combination of the Pirates and the Steelers winning championships made Pittsburgh the “City of Champions”. While the Steelers have held up their end of the bargain, the Pirates continue to sink to lower and lower depths. It is sad to watch this franchise turn into a laughingstock – I think it is time to look at a way to make a change in ownership.
