This is the Yankees' 19th 100-Win Season. What about everyone else?


The Yankees, with 102 wins this season, will be the only team with 100 victories during the 2009 season. It is their fifth 100 win season since 1998 (1st since 2004), and it is no surprise they have been great at accumulating 100-win seasons throughout their history. They did not have their 1st 100 win season until 1927, but they then had an incredible 8 100-win seasons between 1927 and 1942, which produced 7 WS titles and 1 WS loss.
# of 100-Win Seasons (since 1910)
NY Yankees (last in 2009): 19
A's (last in 2002): 10
St. Louis Cardinals (last in 2005): 8
Atlanta Braves: 6 (1993-2003)
Dodgers (Brooklyn 3/LA 2) (last in 1974): 5
Baltimore Orioles (1969-1980): 5
Giants (NY/SF) (last in 2003): 5
Detroit Tigers (last in 1984): 5
Cincinnati Reds (last in 1976): 4
Boston Red Sox (1912, 1915, 1946): 3
NY Mets (1969, 1986, 1988): 3
Philadelphia Phillies (1976-77): 2
Cleveland Indians (1954, 1995): 2
Chicago Cubs (1910, 1935): 2
Arizona D-Backs (1999): 1
Chicago White Sox (1917): 1
Houston Astros (1998): 1
LA Angels (2008): 1
Minnesota Twins (1965): 1
Kansas City Royals (1977): 1
Seattle Mariners (2001): 1
Pittsburgh Pirates: 0
Tampa Bay Rays: 0
San Diego Padres: 0
Texas Rangers: 0
Toronto Blue Jays: 0
Washington Nationals/Montreal Expos: 0
Florida Marlins: 0
Milwaukee Brewers: 0
Colorado Rockies: 0

I don't want to pick on the Pirates too much, but it is a bit surprising that they have not won 100 games in a season since 1910 (in fairness, the last time was 1909), and are the only non-expansion team not to have one. Their highest total was 98 wins in 1979 (WS Champs) and 1991 (came close to NL pennant). Also surprised at the Red Sox total, although I probably shouldn't be.
