What is the White Sox's win-loss record as a franchise? Particularly over the past 25 years?

Same question for the Cubs.

Thanks in advance for the answers.

White Sox since 1901 Won 8707 Lost 8496 Pct. .506
Cubs since 1876 Won 10311 Lost 9779 Pct. .513

I think that since 1901 the Sox have a slightly better record. The Cubs winning percentage since 1901 is .504

This will answer all your questions

If the overall question is which franchise has been more successful throughout its history, the numbers that count are 3-2 and 1-0.

Maybe it is too early yet. Which numbers are those? Certainly not WS win/losses as the Cubs have had more than 1 since 1908, but no WS wins.

3-2 is the Sox World Series record.

I really don't give a fiddler's damn about Cubs history.

I believe what he meant by 3-2 and 1-0 is:

WS Championships
White Sox: 3
Cubs: 2

White Sox series wins over Cubs in WS: 1
Cubs wins: 0

But hey, arguing with a Cub fan over baseball success is like arguing with someone who is arguing water is dry.

Yep, that's what I meant. Those are the first numbers that should come up anytime this is discussed.

Not that it should come up that often. Nothing says "pathetic pissing contest" more than bragging about world championships that were won before your grandparents were even born.

Sox have a far better record and more winning seasons by a long shot than the Cubs over the past 25 years (try running the numbers to from the start of the Golden Era of Sox baseball, 1951 and prepared to be shocked in a good way!)

My grandfather died at 79 and never got to see his beloved White Sox win a World Series. We are some lucky people on this board.

That's what I really need, since we've both already conceeded that what happened at the beginning of the 20th century shouldn't count for this particular argument.

Those 17 years starting in 51 through 67 is where we really dominated.
We had better records in all 17 years and Chicago was a White Sox town and the Cubs were a joke and a real laughingstock with their College of Coaches in the early 60s.
The bad thing is that it sure turned around quick.
