A Graphic Look at World Series Droughts

Games-wo-champions-4

Before I remembered that The St. Louis Cardinals won the World Series in 2006 with a regular season record of 83-78, I was wondering when both of these teams won the crown. Tied with the Astros with the second longest active drought, the Rangers have never won a title in their 50 years of existence, right behind the beloved and cursed Chicago Cubs (103)

While J-Doug has projected the the Rangers will take this in 6, maybe they can win this second time around? Click image to see full size graphic.
