Does anyone know of a website where you can find the final record for the cubs each year? I am wondering due to a wager concerning how many 100 win seasons they have had in the last 100 years.

Thank you

Actually LIP put out a thread talking about this one time, it was congratulating the SOX on another 90win season (cant remember how many we have) and how we blow away the north-side team with 90 win seasons also ....... maybe Fenway or Lip can re-post those Stats again?

Not sure what you are talking about here. Since 1901, the Cubs have 20 90-win seasons while the Sox only have 18.

That's for 100 win seasons. Remember, those Cub teams of the early 1900s were win machines.

Who cares?

CUBS- Losers
White Sox- World Champs

And there's no doubting that the Cubs were a successful team at one time...but in this day and age, no way.

That's the overall idea to take away frome this awesome thread. Still, I wonder what this info is that Lip posted re: Sox having way more 90-win seasons than the Cubs.

Maybe 90-win seasons in just the past few years?:dunno:

I don't know about going back to 1901, but since 1990 the Sox have had four 90+ win seasons (in fact all were 94+ wins)...and they were on track for another 90+ 1994. The Cubs in that time have had one (90 wins in 1998). I don't care about the 20s and 30s, my parents weren't even born yet. But we can say the Sox have outdone the Cubs 4-1 (or 5-1 if you count the '94 winning pct.) in 90 win seasons since 1990.

I thought I heard that the Sox have the 3rd best overall record in baseball in 1990 (behind the Yankees and Braves). Can anyone confirm this? Before someone puts up the Gary Coleman "who cares" picture, the point I take from this is that the Sox success this year wasn't a "fluke". This organization has been consistently competitive over the past 15 years. Yes, there were down periods during this time, but over the long haul they have been a good team. This persistence finally paid off on Oct. 26, 2005.

Not sure about total wins but the Sox are the ONLY team in the majors to finish third or better in their division every season since 1990.

.........not to mention the fact there were only like 4 other teams for them to play with. The Cubs fought vehemently against expansion, fearing they would lose their early dominance if other teams were allowed to join. they were right, heh heh

The Cubs in that time have had one (90 wins in 1998).




And 1998 DOESNT COUNT now that you mention it, they finished the season with 89 wins, and only because the Dusty Baker led SF Giants choked away their wild-card lead down the stretch forcing a 1 game playoff.
So as far as im concerned, the Cubs havnt had a 90 win season in quite some time ..................

By my quick count, since 1950, the Sox have 13 90 win seasons and the Cubs have 4. (and that includes 1998, although they'd have won it in regulation had that outfielder not dropped that pop up, as I recall).
Since 1950, the Cubs have 15 winning seasons and the Sox have 34. Also during that time, only 2 managers have been able to bring back-to-back winning seasons to the northside. One was hall of famer Leo Durocher. The other was Dusty Baker. I'd say Dusty is an under-appreciated manager for accomplishing that feat.

Good catch! They needed 163 games to get their 90th win that year. So, for a 162 game season, their last time winning 90 games was 1989. Before that 1984, then 1969, then wayyyyyy back to 1945.

So, last four 90 win (out of a max 162) seasons. Cubs: '89, '84, '69, '45
White Sox: '05, '00, '93, '90.

Yes, the Cubs are one of the league's premier franchises. :rolleyes:

more Sox stats - # of 90-win seasons by decade before 1990: 80s: 1, 70s: 1, 60s: 3, 50s: 4.

Yeah, but in 1906, the scrubs won 116 games, but the south side "Hitless Wonders" still beat them in the Series! :)

I believe the thread regarded which team had more winning seasons which sparked a debate over whether a .500 season constituted as a "winning season".

Since 1901

White Sox - 58 winning seasons (which doesn't include four .500 seasons)
cubs - 48 winning seasons (2 .500 seasons)
