The 16th Season

It looks like the Pittsburgh Pirates will tie MLB’s record for the longest streak of consecutive losing seasons at 16.  Earlier in the season they were doing well, but now they’re 9 games off of .500, which is a big deficit to overcome.  As a dispassionate observer, it’s easier to root for them to get the record than to root for them to be good.  Besides, Pittsburgh needs a team this bad.
