In today’s game I think this is worth noting and crediting for its accomplishment.

With the win today the White Sox have now guaranteed themselves a winning season in 2006. This marks the 4th consecutive season they have accomplished this (2003, 04, 05, 06). The last time the Sox had four straight ‘winning’ seasons was during the period from 1990 through 1994, over ten seasons ago.
---------------
The win today also guarantees the Sox will have seven straight ‘non-losing’ seasons. They had winning records in 2000, 01, 03, 04, 05, 06 and a .500 season, 81-81, in 2002. The last time the Sox had a run like this you have to go all the way back to the ‘Golden Age’ of Sox baseball when they had 17 consecutive winning seasons, from 1951 through 1967. (That’s the 3rd longest streak in MLB history by the way, behind Baltimore at #2 and the Yankees at #1.)
---------------
Ozzie Guillen now has had three ‘winning’ seasons in his first three years as manager. The last Sox skipper to accomplish this was Gene Lamont (1992, 93, 94). The last Sox skipper to have four winning years in their first four years on the job was Al Lopez (1957, 58, 59, 60)
---------------
Finally this decade has been a good one for the Sox. So far the first decade of the 21st century has produced six winning seasons and a non-losing one.

The last decade when the Sox had this kind of success was in the 1960's. The Sox had eight winning seasons in that ten year period.

Here are the best decades in White Sox history:

T1. 1900's: 9 winning seasons out of ten years.

*Note: The 1900 season isn’t officially recognized since the American League wasn’t considered a part of ‘organized’ baseball until 1901. The Sox did however win the pennant that first season with a mark of 82-53.

T1. 1950's: 9 winning seasons out of ten years.
3. 1960's: 8 winning seasons out of ten years.
4. 1910's: 7 winning seasons out of ten years.
5. 1990's: 6 winning seasons out of ten years.
