Question: Are The Pirates A Major League Team?

Evidence for:
• Major League Baseball logo featured prominently on uniforms, stadium and related merchandise
• Play in Major League Baseball's National League Central Division

Evidence against:
• (Batting) Currently last in National League in Batting Average (.234), On Base % (.301), Stolen Bases (12), and Walks (86).
• (Pitching) Currently last in National League in losses (24), Save opportunities (7), hits given up (317), runs given up (168),
• Rank no higher than 10th in any statistical category
• Have not had a winning season since 1992.

Suggested Action:
• Move Pirates to AA (I think AAA would still be an uphill fight)
