Just insane. The only team left ahead of the 2017 Indians is the 1916 New York Giants. Their streak of 26 straight wins includes ties, however, so I think Cleveland has a strong case for the best baseball winning streak ever. They were 69-56. And now they are 91-56. I just can't get over that.
But, tonight wasn't so much about the length of the streak. It was about how the Indians won. Down 2-1 in the bottom of the 9th to a Royals team that is playing for its season, Francisco Lindor came through. With two outs and two strikes, he hit a double just out of Alex Gordon's reach to tie the game.
And then in the bottom of the 10th, Jay Bruce walked it off. What a game. What a streak. God bless, baseball.
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.
