Reactions to the end of the Pirates' streak

Ronald Martinez

Here are some links regarding the end of the Pirates' streak.

-P- I wrote a bit about the end of the streak at MLB Trade Rumors.

-P- Mike Axisa of CBS Sports checks the inventory of the Pirates' first winning team since 1992.

-P- Paul Hagen of collects reactions from former Pirates, including Mike LaValliere and Jim Leyland, to the end of the Bucs' streak.

-P- Tim Williams chronicles 100 moments from the streak. This thing is epic.

-P- Bob Nutting has some understated comments on the Pirates' 82nd win. I wonder how much perceptions of him, and of Neal Huntington, will change after what's happened this season. Most of the year seems like it's gone by too quickly for Pirates fans to really react much.

-P- With the Pirates' losing streak over, D.J. Gallo looks at sports' new longest losing streaks. The Royals now have baseball's longest streak, and that's pretty likely to end this year as well. That means that, after the 2013 season, the longest losing streaks in baseball will be those of the Mets and Astros, with four losing seasons apiece. For Pirates fans, that's like a half-hour flight delay.
