NY Yankees and the White House


It's hard to know what to make of this, other than it's an interesting coincidence that the Yankees love playing with a Democrat in the White House, and are mere mortals with Republicans in the White House.  With 30 chances to win a World Series with a Republican as President, they have failed each opportunity since 1958.   

New York Yankees
Democrats: 20-3
1933-1953: 11-1 (Wins: 1936-39, 1941, 1943, 1947, 1949-52) /(Loss: 1940)
1961-1969: 2-2 (Wins: 1961-62)/ (Losses: 1963-64)
1977-1981: 2-0 (Wins: 1977-78)
1993-2001: 4-0 (Wins: 1996, 1998-99, 2000)
2009: 1-0

Republicans: 7-10
1921-1933: 4-3 (Wins: 1923, 1927-28, 1932)/Losses (1921-22, 1926)
1953-1961: 3-3 (Wins: 1953, 1956, 1958)/(Losses: 1955, 1957, 1960)
1969-1977: 0-1 (1976)
1981-1993: 0-1 (1981)
2001-2009: 0-2 (2001, 2003)

Here are some other teams that like playing with Republicans in office more than the Yankees:

Brooklyn/LA Dodgers
Republicans: 4-3 (Wins: 1955, 1959, 1981, 1988)/(Losses: 1953, 1956, 1974)
Democrats: 3-8 (Wins: 1916, 1963, 1965)/ (Losses: 1920, 1941, 1947, 1949, 1952, 1966, 1977, 1978)

Phaldelphia/Kansas City/Oakland A's
Republicans: 8-3 (Wins: 1910, 1911, 1929, 1930, 1972, 1973, 1974, 1989)/(Losses: 1905, 1988, 1990)
Democrats: 1-1 (Win: 1913)/(Loss: 1914)

Boston Red Sox
Republicans: 4-2 (Wins: 1903, 1912, 2004, 2007)/(Losses: 1975, 1986)
Democrats:  3-2 (Wins: 1915, 1916, 1918)/(Losses: 1946, 1967)

  1. That's a very neat and interesting formula. I root for the Yankees and I've always voted Democratic. I want President Obama to win a second term so the Yankees World Series success can continue.
