Saw this on hardball times -

7. 10,000 wins: Pittsburgh

It’s been a long two decades for the Pittsburgh Pirates, so it’s nice to know that they are the verge of one nice franchise marker. Their 39th win of the season will be their 10,000th all-time victory. Obviously, this marker is more a matter of lasting a long time than overwhelming brilliance, but it’s worth noting that their overall franchise record is still over .500: 9,961-9,857.

Only 12 franchises in MLB have overall winning records, per HBT.

Of course this counts all of the American Association years starting in 1882. A lot of times you see 1887 listed, being the first year in the National League.

With that in mind they'd better pull a Chicago Blackhawks/Miami Heat and start the season 39-0.

Anything less would be unacceptable. :D
