The New York Mets own the top two spots here, including reliever Anthony Young’s incredible 27-game losing streak.

The Mets have five pitchers total on the list, two of whom contributed to the worst team record in baseball history: 40-120 in 1962. Roger Craig lost 18 in a row the following season.
