But at least our team's slogan is #makeanimpact.

White Sox Baseball
# of teams with a longer playoff drought = 3:
San Diego (2006), Miami (2003), Seattle (2001)

# of teams with fewer playoff appearances since 1995 = 5:
Kansas City* (2), Toronto** (1), Miami (2), Washington (2), Milwaukee (2)

# of Sox seasons in the this decade that were arguably dismal failures = 4:
2011, 2013, 2014, 2015

Conclusion: Blame Sox fans for not showing up to enough games

* back to back AL Champs, WS Champs
** advanced to ALCS this year
