Without looking it up I would say that the Sox were over .500 before the first expansion in 1961 due to the years of the Go-Go teams of the 50s and before the 1919 scandal
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.
