Since the AL and NL split into divisions, winning 100 games is not a guarantee of success.  Indeed, it often seems a terrible burden. Here are some recent statistics.  Because I am 54 years old, "recent" includes the 1980s.

Since 1980, 31 teams have won 100 or more games. Four won the World Series, seven lost in the World Series, eight lost in the league championship series, 10 lost in the league divisional series and two teams (San Francisco 103 wins in 1993 and Baltimore 100 wins in 1980) did not even make the playoffs.

Since 2000, 14 teams have won 100 or more games. Only one team won the World Series, two lost in the World Series, three lost in the league championship series and eight lost in the league divisional series.
