Infographic: How often does the best team win the World Series?

Here’s another great infographic by Craig Robinson demonstrating that having the best regular season record does not necessarily mean post-season success.  This graphic only covers from 1995 to 2010, but we saw a good example of this just last year: the Kansas City Royals’ and the San Francisco Giants’ regular season records in 2014 ranked 7th and 8th in Major League Baseball respectively.  It goes to show that having a great season and getting to the playoffs is important, but the real competition begins in October.
