    They blew a 3-1 lead in the world series though.

    Bring me your Bickford, Ryan McMahon, Senzatela and Peter Lambert cards

    Hard to believe the Yankees don't hold the record with all those monster WS championship teams.

    Yeah I know that. I was speaking to the major league record. As of yesterday I did not consider the Giants streak legit (because of the tie game) but rather considered the Cubs as having the longest (21, currently tied with the '17 Indians)...

    HOWEVER, after reading the entire facts of the 1916 Giants streak this morning...

    http://m.mlb.com/news/article/254094...d-1916-giants/

    Looks like the Giants 26 game winning streak is in fact legit.

    After 12 straight wins one of the games ended in a tie due to weather but that game didn't count at all and was completely made up the following day. Back then when tie games were rained out they had to play the entire game again. They didn't have the current suspension rules we have today. That tie game should just be completely forgotten. I no longer believe there should be controversy surrounding this streak.

    Most Americans didn't know about Hurricanes Harvey and Irma. The U.S. looked quite different back then than it does now.

    U.S. national gas price average was $2.33/gal and now it's $2.64/gal.

    22 in a row! 10th inning walk-off. Nicely done.

    That was a crazy one.

    I would really like to see them break the record but man, that's going to be ever so tough to accomplish. I mean, 22 wins was a nearly impossible goal to reach in it's own right, especially in the modern era. In all honesty I don't think they can do it but I'm really, really pulling for them to.

    I mean, just a few days ago I was thinking 21 games was the longest in history and how difficult that would be. Now I discover the 1916 record was legit all along and have to witness 4 more wins in a row just to tie it?!? Crazy....

    22 wins in a row really is amazing. I hope they break the Giants record of 26. Terry Francona deserves a lot of credit for this streak in addition to the players.

    I've always assumed the Indians win streak would end on a night that Bauer started (because he's on my fantasy team). I was glad he didn't blow it on his last game, would be very happy if it wasn't until his next start (because they would have broken the record by then) but his stuff simply doesn't look good tonight. At least not good enough to win a pitchers duel if the Indians offense doesn't show up.

    But I'm a natural born pessimist so it's typical of me to think this way.

    Bauer blew a 3-1 lead.

    Game tied at 3 in the 5th inning.

    Please don't run Bauer back out there in the 6th or there will be trouble

    true, the league or their owners need to consent, but I wonder if the owners have ever voted to deny a move of a team that wanted
    to move from one part of its territory to another part of their territory such as what the case would be if the Reds and Bengals wanted to move across the river. I think the Athletics were talking about a move to the south bay but that got shut down over giants/athletics territorial rights issues but that never came to a owner vote as I recall.
