Interesting analysis. I view the number of playoff appearances as a better indicator of franchise succcess thatn average number of wins perseason. What's even more sobering than the numbers you use is that you used 1981 as the start date. If you use 1969 as the start date (1969 was the first year of divisional play), the Sox playoff number is the same -- since we didn't have a single playoff appearance from 1969 until 1983.
