Being the only man stuck on a lonely island can get pretty lonely. At least, I imagine it would be.

While most of us have never been marooned on a small island in the middle of the ocean with no help in sight, most of these pitchers (listed in no particular order) have come pretty darn close to that.

These are the pitchers with win-loss records of .500 or below. They are the best of the bunch…unfortunately, their teams stink, which means they can’t get run support of any kind.

To qualify, the pitcher must have a win-loss record of .500 or below, and the team that they play for must have a record of .500 below. In addition, the pitcher must be a starter and have an ERA below 4. This leaves us with nine pitchers who qualify.

These are great pitchers, but you’d never know it because they are stranded on teams with either a bunch of underperformers, or teams that just never had any talent to begin with.

So, without further ado, I give you the nine best losing pitchers in the MLB.
