List of Major League Baseball franchise postseason droughts
| List of Major League Baseball franchise postseason droughts ： ウィキペディア英語版|
Throughout the history of Major League Baseball (MLB), franchises have had various postseason and World Series droughts.
All 16 of the original Major League franchises (i.e., those in place when the World Series began in 1903) have won the World Series, with the longest wait for a franchise's first championship being for the Phillies ( years, ending in 1980). Since expansion began in 1961, eight of the 14 expansion teams have never won the World Series. Further, two franchises (the Cubs and Indians) have current championship droughts that pre-date the expansion era. The second- and third-longest championship droughts in history (after the Cubs' current -year drought) were ended recently by the Red Sox ( years, ending in 2004) and the White Sox ( years, ending in 2005). Notably, the Cubs' current World Series drought began before the creation of any of the other three major American sports leagues—the NHL was founded in 1917, the NFL in 1920, and the NBA in 1946.
Only two expansion franchises (the Expos/Nationals and Mariners) have never won a pennant (i.e., the league championship, the two winners of which meet in the World Series), while the Rangers recently ended the longest-ever founding pennant drought ( years, ending in 2010). Only the Cubs (at years) have a current pennant drought that predates the expansion era.
Every MLB franchise has at least been to the postseason, especially since expansion of the playoffs in 1994 made that feat easier. The Mariners have the longest active postseason drought at years. Long postseason droughts were ended recently by the Nationals ( years for the franchise, years for the city, ending in 2012), the Pirates ( years, ending in 2013), the Royals ( years, ending in 2014), and the Blue Jays ( years, ending in 2015).
This list includes only the modern World Series between the American League (AL) and the National League (NL), not the various 19th-century championship series. Those teams which have never achieved a particular accomplishment in their franchise history are listed by the date they entered the leagues.
