The list of World Series winners got a little bit longer this week, welcoming the Texas Rangers, who secured their first time in franchise history. Though other teams still sit on the list of franchises to never win a title, the Rangers were around -- first as the Senators -- since 1961 and had yet to win a World Series, the oldest remaining team without such an achievement.
Next up is the Milwaukee Brewers and San Diego Padres -- founded in 1969 -- tied for the oldest franchises without a title.
The drought ended Wednesday with the Rangers proving its moves in free agency and pitching acquisitions in-season were well worth the expenditure, winning it all in a swift five games.
