I understand that. I'm going by your numbers and your comment from a post earlier in this thread. You said since 1996 Texas has made it five times and twice in the World Series.
Since 1996 the Sox have made it three times and once to the World Series.
That's doing a better job in my opinion.
You can make the case that the Sox have wasted as many excellent chances to get to the post season in that time frame as they've actually gotten in.
