I was curious what the numbers show under current ownership that's all. My personal bottom line (as you well know) are "winning seasons" -- when EVERYTHING else is lost, because of the historical mediocrity of the franchise -- that is my fall back position.

But I can understand that many fans want more, which is why I asked about the playoff situation compared to the other AL teams under current Sox ownership.

Nothing more..nothing less.

And to wit, to answer that question...here you go 81 through 2012:

32 appearances is the maximum number:

Yankees-18
Red Sox-12
Athletics-11
Angels-8
Twins-8
Indians-7
Blue Jays-5
Rangers-5
Tigers-5
White Sox-5
Mariners-4
Orioles-4
Rays-4 (were not in the league entire time frame...)
Royals-3
Brewers-2 (left A.L.)
Astros-0 (join A.L. in 2013)

Sox are tied with three other teams for 7th in the league in that time frame.

So the numbers show just a tick over 81 wins a season in 32 years (81-81 is a .500 record in a full season) and tied for 7th in playoff spots (in a 14 team league for that time period).

I guess maybe "mediocre" is the best way to describe the franchise? (I can't get to the 'confused' face icon or I'd use it here)
