not trying to argue with you but I am such a stat nerd I have actually looked this stuff up before on pro baseball reference. Lot's of the old teams are over .500 . Sox are ahead of Pirates, Braves, Senators/Twins, and Browns/Orioles only. Can't figure out how the Indians have got to a better win pct. though. I guess they were good for awhile back like the Cubs. It is very close between the Sox, Reds, Pirates, and Tigers though.

That scandal sent the sox into a horrendous run of decades of irrelevance and losing. Looking at some of the records it's pretty bad, still they had some players like Lyons, Appling, etc.

Sorry to ruin the pity party you're all having
I didnt see any eveidence of a "pity party". Some people reflecting on a great time in their life, others wanting to experience it again.

When I see a team like the Giants win it all after losing their closer and their best hitter it shows that anything is possible.

Even the Cards were a surprise in 2011.
