I'm so jealous of what Tampa has done as a club.

In the last 13 years with butt attendance, in a brutal division, and a pretty small payroll tampa has made the playoffs six times with (now) two WS appearances. Good on them. Don't overpay on fa, don't get attached to your guys when they're past their prime and keep bringing in good young talent any way possible.

The Brewers are the second oldest franchise to never have won a World Series behind only the Padres (unless you count the year in Seattle, then they're tied for the most years as an established franchise without ever winning a World Series). If the Rays win the World Series we will be down to just five active franchises to have never won one. The Nationals exercised those demons last year, and the Padres appear to be in a good position to make a strong run over the next decade.

MLB Franchises to Never Win the World Series (Franchise Establishment Date)

Padres (1969)
Brewers (1970)
Rangers (1972)
Mariners (1977)
Rockies (1993)
Rays (1998)

Based on the way LA is playing it feels like Tampa is going to get smoked in this series. Dodgers in 5.

So every expansion team since 1993 has at least made it to the World Series once, with Arizona winning one and the Marlins winning two. Meanwhile after 38 years there doesn't seem to be a World Series in sight for us.

Oh well, go Dodgers.

I hope that if it ever does occur, I’ll cherish every moment of it. Not even sure it’ll feel real if it were to occur. I semi felt it last year as a Blues fan but my Brewers blood runs a lot thicker. I suppose it’d be much like the 90’s Packers for a lot of fans. Done with this endless rant. Just want it to friggin happen.

The Mariners haven't even made it to the World Series yet.

Yeah, other than a nice run in the 90s with Johnson, Griffey and A-Rod, they've been a pretty pathetic franchise in their 44 year history. I believe they have the longest active streak of non playoff seasons, which is why I couldn't figure out why Stearns was so in love with Smoak, Narvaez and later, Vogelbach, although he did have a good year with us but hardly a cornerstone piece for a baseball team.

There aren't many teams out there where you can say the Brewers have had significantly more success over the course of their team's history, but the Mariners would definitely be one.

And this is the franchise with a 116-win season.

Mariners have an all-time .470 winning pct vs a .481 for Milwaukee. That means Mariners, on average, go 76-86, Brewers 78-84. Mariners have a four-season stretch where they went an average of 98-64, 14 winning seasons out of 43, compared to Brewers 17 of 51, they have five hall-of-famers largely associated with their franchise (possibly 2 more with Ichiro and King Felix). I wouldn't in any way say that Milwaukee has had "significantly" more success, unless you are weighing recent results more heavily.

Milwaukee has a pennant, more division titles (assuming you count 1981), more post-season appearances, and as you pointed out, a higher overall winning percentage. I think it's significant.

+1..... When Atlanta couldn't finish off a three-to-one lead I knew the dodgers were destined to win the whole thing.

Brett Phillips, World Series Game 4 hero. Unbelievable.

...also that defense from the Dodgers on the last play was remarkably awful.

Wow what a game
