In the 32 years that current ownership has run the White Sox the average yearly record is:
(Remember games were wiped out by the labor impasses in 1981, 1994 and they got a late start in 1995, that's why the numbers don't add up exactly to 81-81.)
For what it's worth, here is the ranking of AL teams by number of victories since 1981 (going into tonight's games, and excluding the Rays, who weren't in the AL in 1981, and the Brewers, who have since left it).
None of this, of course, has much effect on whether the Sox, at present, need a complete overhaul . . .
