Yesterday a friend sent me the following e-mail message, titled "A Liberal's Guide to the Postseason":

A true liberal would be rooting for the team whose fans have suffered the longest. Here is the tally of championship-free seasons; the number in parentheses is their "suffering rank":

Cubs     98 (1)
Indians 58 (2)
Phillies 26 (10)
Rockies 14 (19)
Yankees 6 (23)
D-backs 5 (24)
Angels 4 (25)
Red Sox 2 (27-T)
