The best pitching in history doesn't win you anything if you can't score runs...the Sox could beat you in 2005 with a blast, a bloop or a bunt...so yes it does mean something.

"I have the ultimate respect for White Sox fans. They were as miserable as the Cubs and Red Sox fans ever were but always had the good decency to keep it to themselves. And when they finally won the World Series, they celebrated without annoying every other fan in the country." Jim Caple, ESPN (January 12, 2011)
