    Betting Against the Pittsburgh Pirates

    One guy did it, every game, for an entire season:

    Early in the season, we examined one Bucs fan's foolproof strategy of always betting against the Pirates. Turns out, they were even worse than Vegas knew. A 9.98 percent ROI was his reward.
    Here's a link to his spreadsheet, detailing every bet placed and his running +/- total for the year: http://www.tinyurl.com/piratebet

    All totaled, the Bucs made this guy a $324.34 profit, but I'm not sure that's worth the soul-crushing nature of having to check the Pirates box score every day for a full season.
    Championships Matter.

    I should do this for the Mariners, just to annoy my boss and mother-in-law

    (of course, it didn't help matters when the Reds were swept up in Seattle, this summer...)
    Never overlook the obvious
