Actually it's 30. I was looking at the Rockies' record on Gameday, and they have 57 losses, while the Pirates have 52, going on 53. Oh well, it doesn't really matter - the way things are going so far, they'll have loss #82 by mid-August.

And yes, you can say something, because at least the Mariners have had some good seasons in the past decade.

Well.. not really,

We pulled a Patriot-sized stunt in 2001, winning 116 games, tying the league record with the 1906 White-sox....

then choked in the playoffs.

What is more amazing is that the next two years, we won over 90 games each year, and STILL missed the playoffs.

We got lucky last year with a winning season and a shot at the postseason, though we didn't make it, after 3 losing seasons. Seems we have another one now.

:banging:

That's still 4 more winning seasons than the Pirates have had.

I actually thought they'd make a run at .500 since they were only 6 games under going into the break, but they have proceeded to shit the bed right off the bat, against one of the worst teams in the NL. I shouldn't be surprised, because it's what Pirates fans gotten used to. I really wish someday they'll turn things around - they can't continue to suck forever.

Right?

Well, I am a Vancouver Canuck fan.

Talk about hoping against hope....

I miss the days of the Russian Rocket !!

We almost had the cup against the Rangers. That was the BEST SC series in YEARS.

I remember it well - was really rooting for the Canucks because I didn't want to see those dirty Rags win the Cup and end their curse.

BTW, the Pirates were swept by the Rockies, so now we're at 28 more to go. Seems pretty much a lock right now.
