After losing their Wednesday afternoon game against the St. Louis Cardinals 3-2, the Pittsburgh Pirates have managed to clinch their 19th losing season in a row.
Even if they win the last 13 games of the regular season, they will still have more losses than wins.
Despite being first place in the National League Central standings in late July, the Pirates have fallen to a 67-83 record.
Let's look at the bright side though. They may not be able to brag about winning, but at least they're the best at being bad.
The #1 losers have WORST losing streak of any major professional American sports team in history.
Now THAT is something to brag about. LOLz!

A sprained thumb may prevent Alex Rodriguez from playing in the last regular season series at Yankee home turf this week against their rivals, the Boston Red Sox.
He received a cortisone shot in his injured left thumb on Monday, but doctors have told the the third baseman he can't swing the bat.
A-Rod has only played 4 games since July 7 because of injuries, but it sounds like NOT playing will hurt even more then his thumb would if he did play, as he explained:
"The one thing is, it’s so frustrating to come here, it’s the last time we come here for the regular season. It hurts like hell just to sit on the sidelines watching.”
The trainers believe his thumb will heal in a few days time with proper rest. We say sit out and rest up for the playoffs!
