Someone posted this recently, and I found it worth re-posting here...

Do you realize that if the Devil Rays climb to fourth this year, leaving the Orioles in last, that the Sox will be the AL team with the longest tenure without being in the cellar? (1989)See below.

Devil Rays (2001)
Royals (2001)
Rangers (2001)
Minnesota (2000)
Angels (1999)
Detroit (1998)
A's (1998)
Toronto (1997)
Boston (1992)
Mariners (1992)
Cleveland (1991)
Yankees (1990)
White Sox (1989)
Orioles (1988)



:shammy

Gee, I wish I knew what not being in last place felt like...

That would be cool, but does anyone really think the D-rays can move up to 4th place?

I don't know about the rest of you, but I would just love the Yankees to fall apart.

Whether it be injuries, or poor play, I would love to see those money pit bastards feel some of our anguish!

Of course they can, all they have to beat out is the Orioles. I mean the Oriole outfield is going to be Marty Cordova, Chris Singleton and Jeff Conine. At least the D-Rays have a couple guys worth having like Ben Grieve.

You know, it's just this kind of nonsense that really pisses me off about the White Sox. It reminds me of that stupid statistic they were promoting a couple years back as the winningest team of the 90's (or something like that).

They haven't done jack. In fact, they've done worse than jack. Alienating fans, calling them "crazy", and later, "wrong", pursuing labor victories rather than baseball ones, etcetera.

Pathetic. Absolutely pathetic. Only a Cubs fan would care about something as meaningless as staying out of last-place the longest.

:ohno
"Our guys are in their 85th."

Not even Kenny is bad enough to put us in last place!

:KW:
"We'll see about that!"

Your a long suffering Sox fan, George. I've come to expect such stupid comments and ideas that they don't bother me anymore. No need to get worked up over nothing.

Hence the term "trivia" in the subject line.

I just found it interesting, is all.

Okay, I came off a bit strong. Sorry. It wasn't aimed at you or anyone else, except perhaps whoever it was at MLB or the Sox that thought this was something anyone would honestly care about--beyond of course its silly trivia nature.

I'm going to go breath heavy into a paper bag now.

:cool:
