The Pittsburgh Pirates offensive futility this season has been absolutely stunning, and no one knows about it more than their very own pitching staff.
In terms of offense so far this season, the Pirates are aiming to cap off their full two decade losing streak by also targeting some new offensive record lows. They currently sit last in the entire league in average, on-base percentage, slugging, and on-base + slugging. They are also dead last in runs. I pause here to note that they are an astounding 9 runs behind the 29th place team. The last place list continues with hits (10 behind the 29th place team), doubles, homeruns, RBIs (11 behind the 29th place team), and walks. That is 10 total offensive categories in which the Pirate rank dead last in a league of 30 teams.
