1984-2004:

Detroit has made one World Series (1984) and won it.

Kansas City has made one World Series (1985) and won it.

Minnesota has made two World Series (1987, 1991) and won both.

Cleveland has made two World Series (1995, 1997) and lost both.

Shouldn't we at least get a shot at it? This is our year. Go Sox!

Technically, no AL Central team has ever won the World Series. The 3 division format didn't play postseason ball until 1995.

Yeah, realistically we only have two appearances (both losses--Cle 95 and 97) in this division. But he was of course referring to AL Central teams from 1984 to present.

What was so special about 1984 that he made it the cutoff? (Between 1959, the last Sox appearance in the Series, and 1984, the Twins lost in 1965, the Tigers won in 1968, and the Royals lost in 1980.)
