The 2010 Pittsburgh Pirates season was the 129th season of the franchise; the 124th in the National League. The 2010 season was the Pirates' MLB-record 18th consecutive losing season. (This is also the longest for any major professional North American sport). The Pirates finished sixth and last in the National League Central with a record of 57–105.

Off-season[edit]

The Pirates used the off-season to pick up bullpen help, signing relievers Javier López, Brendan Donnelly and former closer Octavio Dotel to one-year contracts. They also added a shortstop, Bobby Crosby and re-signed shortstop Ronny Cedeño. The Pirates were intent on not having a losing season for the 18th straight year, though it happened.
