That '89 team was loaded with young talent and fans knew it. I think there was some excitement among Sox fans that better times were indeed only a year or two away.

2013 is not comparable at all. This organization has taken some important steps in the last couple of years of bottoming out from the talent void they were in, but they still have a long way to go with lots of holes to fill.

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
