There are some teams who enjoy sustained success, constantly winning and reaching the postseason, and in some cases, winning the World Series.
Others have made it to the postseason and advanced, but were ultimately eliminated before the World Series.
And then there are those who have either made it and not advanced or not reached at all.
The tweet below shows a graphic that lists the biggest accomplishments of each MLB team since 2013.
Teams such as the Kansas City Royals, Boston Red Sox, Chicago Cubs, Houston Astros, Atlanta Braves, Los Angeles Dodgers, and San Francisco Giants found themselves in the top tier, while teams such as the Chicago White Sox, Texas Rangers, Los Angeles Angels, Cincinnati Reds, and Minnesota Twins haven’t done much of anything.

The Biggest Losers
The five teams listed in the bottom tier have simply not enjoyed much success.
The Reds have reached the postseason only one since 2013.
They were swept by the Atlanta Braves in the National League Wild Card Series in 2020 and have yet to win a postseason game since Game 2 of the 2012 NLDS against the Giants.
The Twins have reached the postseason three times, but have been eliminated in each of their three appearances without even managing to win one game.
The White Sox also reached the playoffs two years in a row, but managed to win just two games and not advance past the first round.
The Angels have only been to the postseason once since 2009.
That trip ended in a three-game sweep at the hands of the Royals in the ALDS.
Some teams have it better than others, but there are those who just can’t seem to get it going come October.
