The UPS guy asked me this and seems to think my beloved Cardinals is the team with only 2 consecutive losing seasons in the last 30 or 40 years but hopefully someone can confirm and explain. When you google it only seems to correlate losing with most. ---- The Cardinals had consecutive losing seasons in 1994 (53-61) and 1995 (62-81). Prior to that their last consecutive losing seasons came in 1958 and 1959. Since the 1960 season, the Cardinals are the only MLB team to have one set of consecutive losing seasons. The Los Angeles Dodgers have had two sets of consecutive losing seasons since 1960 (1967-1968 and 1986-1987).
