Wander Franco 12 year extension? in Pale Hose Talk Posted Tuesday at 09:16 PM Playoff appearances are a poor way to judge success. Advancing in playoff series (beyond the WC coin flip game) is a more legitimate standard. How your team stacked up against the 4-10 best teams in the playoffs. The Sox have only advanced a single season (thankfully they won all three series) since the Division/Wild Card era (1969-2021). Colorado, which started playing thirty years later, are the only other team to have advanced in the playoffs a single season in the Division/Wild Card era.
