Pittsburgh has been on a losing streak for 8 straight years by failing to qualify for the playoffs since 2016. They were unable to clinch the top two positions in the NLCD even once in the last 10 years.
They have mostly fallen behind the Milwaukee Brewers, Cincinnati Reds, Chicago Cubs, and St. Louis Cardinals ever since they shifted to the National League Central Division in 1994.
The Buccaneers have only played two playoffs in the past decade and lost them both in the Wild Card series. They were ranked fourth in the NL Central Division in four seasons and finished fifth in three.
Similarly, the Bucs had better records in 2014 and 2015 which ranked them second in the NLCD. They had qualified for the playoffs in both seasons but were unable to advance ahead of the Wild Card games.
Apart from the last two seasons in 2014 and 2015, the Pirates have qualified for the playoffs only 15 times more over their long history of 130 years in MLB. Among them, they had won seven NL Championships and five World Series titles.
