Yeah, but the time elapsed between the end of September, 2000 & September, 2003 is actually 3 years. It covers parts of 4 calander years & parts of 4 different baseball seasons, but we are coming up on the 3rd aniversary of the Sox clinching the AL Central title.

You're counting SEASONS, not years. It was September, 2000, that the Sox won their last division crown. That was three YEARS ago, not four. That's why the article refers to years, not seasons.

Don't worry. The ancient Romans had trouble with the inclusive/exclusive rule, too. :smile:
