The New York Yankees have won as many World Series as the next four closest teams combined
It doesn’t look like any team’s going to be dethroning the Bronx Bombers anytime soon. Even if the Cardinals (10), Red Sox (7), Giants (5), and Athletics (5) decided to pool all their championships and form some sort of superfranchise, they’d still only tie New York at 27 World Series titles! The Yanks account for a QUARTER of all the World Series championships and nearly half of the total American League titles. Not only that, but get this - they have won multiple titles in every decade but one since the ‘20s (they did not win a single World Series during the ‘80s...thank goodness!). It’s no wonder there’s a Broadway musical entitled “Damn Yankees”...
