The Pittsburgh Pirates have 18-consecutive losing seasons, an all-time mark.

As unbearable and agonizing as this is for Pirates fans, the Philadelphia Phillies had a 31-year stretch from 1918-1948 that defied logic.

In those 31 years, the Phillies had just one winning season (1932). And even that year they finished just 78-76.

Just think about that for a second...31 years of consistent awfulness!

They lost 100 games 12 times, and had a five-year stretch of 100-plus defeats from 1938-1942.  Remember, they played just 154 games back then.

Their compiled record, 1,752-2,941, was a winning percentage of just .373.  In today's 162-game schedule, that's an average-record equivalent of approximately 60-102.

At least there were two teams in Philadelphia back then for fans to choose from.
