It’s been a while since the Pittsburgh Pirates were worth of a mention this late in the season.
You have to go back all the way to 1997 when they were eliminated from making the playoffs in the final week of the season, losing the NL Central despite having a losing record and operating under a $9 million payroll.
They’ve suffered some of the worst season during what’s been a stretch of 19 losing seasons, losing 100 games twice during that span and at least 90 games eight times including last season when we believed it was finally their year until that one night in July.
