Dave:

I don't like to show anyone up or embarrass them, but you just proved my point about the fans of other teams being less knowledgeable. The only WS that the Yanks have won in the 21st century was in 2009. The year 2000 was in the 20th century and here's why.

1 - The first year of the common era (CE) was the year 1, not the year zero
2 - Since a century has 100 years (that's what century means), the last year of the 1st century was the year 100
3 - The first year of the 2nd century was the year 101 and the last year of the 2nd century was the year 200
4 - Consequently, the first year of the 10th century was 901 and the last year of that century (and the end of the 1st millennium) was the year 1000
5 - The first year of the 11th century (the start of the second millennium) was the year 1001 and the last year of that century was the year 1100
10 - Continuing, the first year of the 20th century was the year 1901 and the last year of the 20th century (and the end of the 2nd millennium) was .... well you get it now.
