The 2017 Indians are now tied for the 9th longest winning streak in the history of baseball. Three of those teams played before 1900, so they don't count. The other five ahead of them:
- 26 - 1916 Giants
- 21 - 1935 Cubs
- 20 - 2002 Athletics
- 19 - 1906 White Sox
- 19 - 1947 Yankees
The team that I most associate with winning streaks is that 2002 A's team. Of course, Moneyball really hyped that up (mostly the movie). But even as a kid, I remember following it through SportsCenter everyday. Here's hoping the Indians top the A's and then set their sights on 26.
Baseball is here! And more importantly, that means the over/under game is back. It seems as though everyone is an expert this time of year. Somehow we convince ourselves that we are better at predicting baseball outcomes than everyone else. Well, AFITB is putting that to the test for the third year in a row. Think you know more about baseball than us? You probably do. But go ahead and prove it anyway.
Baseball is simply the best.
Can the playoffs get even better? Yes, if you play this game with us.
