  1. Teams with three of history’s five longest World Series droughts made the 2017 playoffs but failed to win a pennant this year: the Chicago Cubs (1906-2016), Boston Red Sox (1918-2004) and Cleveland Indians (1948-??)

    All five (including the Chicago White Sox, 1917-2005, and Philadelphia Phillies, 1903-1980), it might be noted, were pre-expansion members of the 1903 National League (8 teams) or American League (8 teams) who have not moved from their original cities.

    (The other members of the original 16 who haven’t moved since 1903 are the New York Yankees, Pittsburgh Pirates, Cincinnati Reds, Detroit Tigers and St Louis Cardinals; the six who have are the Braves, Giants, Dodgers, Athletics, Senators/Twins and Browns/Orioles.)
