The Pittsburgh Pirates come into the 2011 MLB season riding that great losing seasons streak and do not seem to want to get off that horse this year or, for many fans anywhere, for some time.
The Pirates showed the fans and baseball some good young talent with Neil Walker, Pedro Alvarez and Jose Tabata.
These three young players, however, could do little to bring back the winning ways that have been lost in the pages of Pirates history.
The Pirates finished the 2010 season 57-105. This may have angered most cities' sports fans, but for Pittsburgh Pirate fans this has turned into what is expected of a poorly-run joke of an MLB team.
It is almost impossible to imagine a team doing worse than 57-105, but if any team in the MLB could pull off this feat, the Pirates are that one team.
Over the next 10 slides you will see why the Pittsburgh Pirates will do worse in the upcoming 2011 season and see why the city of Pittsburgh and its fans have wait one more year for the record of consecutive losing seasons to end.
