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.

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

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?

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...

The White Sox have won one more World Series in my lifetime than I was expecting, and I'm only 27. If you asked me in 2004 if I would be happy with them winning only one title in my lifetime, I would have said yes.

In other cities, only two playoff appearances in the last decade would be grounds for a riot, but this is Chicago.

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

In my book, Crede has 2 less home runs than his statistics show, 4 less RBI, and one less walk (the one where he pinch hit for Uribe after coming in with a 3-0 count and taking one pitch).

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).

GMAB. Why must so much be read into my posts lately? Swing and a miss.

What I *meant,* as a fan, I was willing to be content enough with some down seasons, and to be uptone in 2008 before the playoff collapse, without a a care, because 2005 was a very recent memory. Now, while I will always love the Sox and in fact have probably followed the rest of baseball more closely than ever because of the Sox' poor season, I got disinterested in attending games and have less interest in watching on TV or listening on the radio. I'll be sure to spell out my complete thought pattern next time, as my comment certainly did not call for this type of reaction assuming that I thought the Sox owed me a thing. Of course, I am a season ticket holder, so some might argue those of us who hold STs are indeed owed something, but I recognize it is my choice to hang onto those to see an entertainment product. But much like a movie you drop $18 on and it sucks, I wish the product were better.

And the last AL team before the Sox, Red Sox and Yankees to win a Series? The Angels in 2002. And how far does one have to go to find another AL team to win a Series? Twenty years since Toronto won in 1993.

Perhaps we should view the Sox' championship in 2005 in the context that it was a significant accomplishment. Can the Sox get back there? With the pitching they have, I think they can, provided that Rick Hahn can make the right moves. I like what I saw from Hahn at the trade deadline and I look forward to more moves.
