Grant Brisbee's MLB Power Rankings for SBNation.com are, as usual, awesome. This week, they're based on the worst logos for each team. The teams with the least offensive worst logos rank at the top in the power rankings (the Royals are at No. 1), while the teams with the most offensive bad logos come in last. Brisbee's writing gets funnier as the piece goes along.â†µ
The Pirates, by the way, rank No. 29 out of 30.

Anything with a cartoon pirate caricature is awful. If you ever go drinking backwards through time, be careful: you’ll think you’re going to bed with 1968, but you’ll wake up next to 1967. I chose the one up there because it looks like the worst optical illusion of all-time. Like, okay, I see the Pirate. Kind of. But if I turn my head the other way, do I see an old lady? A rabbit? A station wagon? Dammit, tell me! What is it? TELL ME.â†µ
