1. I only went back to 1969 for these records. I may expand this further in the future, but this is a good start, since that was the mark of divisional play.
2. MLB went from two divisions to three divisions starting in the 1994 season. The Pirates moved from the NL East to the NL Central.
3. It’s probably no secret to visitors of this blog, but the Pirates are tied for the record of consecutive losing seasons in professional sports with 16 seasons between 1993 and 2008. I have outlined their record during this streak, as well as before the streak.
