The expected probability would have been for them to win 1.65 WS (13 * 1/8, the # of teams competing each year), so winning "only" 1 isn't quite as much of an underperform as is normally viewed.  2 would have been slightly exceeding expectations.

Don't your stats assume all teams are of equal ability?   Ergo, they were jinxed.   :)   I'm guessin' it was because of the owner's wife.  (mindfact)
