Default Who are the last 3 American League teams to win a World Series?

Yankees, Red Sox, and WHITE SOX. Not bad company.

If the goal is to win World Series championships, we aren't doing too bad. Hopefully we will be the next AL team to win a World Series and it will be soon. Well not this year. Lol.

And since the AL Central was created in 1994, we are the only team to represent the AL central and win the World Series.

The name of the game is what have you done for me lately. Not a good answer to that question right now.

The World Series Championship is all that matters, so the Sox have done more "lately" than 80% of the teams in baseball.

So if only NL teams won the WS for the next 20 years and the Sox didn't do jack **** in that time, you'll be happy?

If you wanted to be happy and follow baseball, you wouldn't be following the Whtie Sox. Or any team in the AL Central. Or West. Or most of the teams in the East. Or most of the teams in the National League. The Giants won the World Series in 2012 as well as 2010, and their 2013 is as bad as the Whtie Sox 2013, and not just relative to expectation.

If you want to be happy, you don't follow a baseball team.

If you are frestrated now because the thrill of the White Sox winning the World Series is old at still less than a decade, imagine what it was like in the 1970s when this season was the norm and my father wasn't born since the White Sox last won the World Series.

No. I said they have outperformed 80% of the whole MLB, championship wise.

Default Top 3

We are still in the top 3. And we have done well in the year following Red Sox World Series wins.

Great - the 2005 Championship carried me through a few seasons, but it's been crap since then.

It carried me through the playoff loss to the Rays in 2008. I stopped comparing at that time and I expected more for the SOX organization to turn it around or at least move forward.

Same here. The post-2008 slide has pretty much ended the good will.

I long for the days when people were willing to give appendages for just one world series...

Good will? The Sox don't owe me a damn thing. I love baseball. I love following a certain team. Goodwill? Get over yourself.

5 of the last 7. Have to go back to the late '70's/early '80's to find a string that good for the NL before this (6 of 8, starting with the Reds in 1975 and ending with the Cardinals in 1982, only interrupted by the Yankees' two wins over the Dodgers in '77 and '78).

Yeah winning 5/8 is a huge statistical correlation...

It's also 5/9 since the Red Sox won in 2004 also. The NL has won the last 3 two of them by the Giants. Prior to that the AL had won 12/19 with 5 of those by the Yankees...
