Default What's the deal with the Dodgers?

So the Dodgers had perhaps the greatest two month run in baseball history, going something like 55-11, and immediately follow it with some of the worst baseball ever played, going 1-17. How is this possible?

If you're a fan of unusual stats, these back-to-back streaks have to be among the most bizarre ever. What's going on? Can anyone explain what is happening?

Certainly, these Dodgers are the streakiest team around...with apologies to the Indianss.

the Dodgers: ---------------------the Indians:

6/7-6/26 16W-1L--------------first six post-AS games 1W-5L

6/29-7/19 14W-1L--------------since then, CLE had a 9 & 6-game win streak

7/22-8/6 13W-1L--------------before the current 20-game winning streak


8/26-9/11 1W-16L

Interesting to note: 24,654 attended Cleveland's 20th straight victory (at home) while 50,161 attended the Dodgers 10th straight loss (also at home).

Default Streaks

They had a poll during the Red Sox game last nite for the viewers at home, vote for one as more surprising, Indians 20 game winning/L A`s 11 game losing streak. Thought it was a cool poll and know how I voted. The T V broadcasters, one being Dennis Eckersley, were split.

Always a thorn in the Yankees' paw:

These streaking Cleveland Indians are being comparing, due to their run differential during the streak, to the 1939 Yankees who hold the all-time single season run differential of an amazing 411!

The Yanks were 106-45 that year. They started the year beating the Red Sox 2-0, HOF Ruffing over HOF Grove.

However, this great team's longest loosing streak - 6 games - beginning with 5straight losses to those same Red Sox at Yankee Stadium.

Boston finished fourth that year, but, they did have something to say for 5 games.

At least the Dodgers are in 1st place. The 1916 Giants started the season 2-13, then they won 17 games in a row. At the end of the season they won 26 in a row to finish in 4th place.

The Dodgers could still finish behind the Dbacks, Nationals, Red Sox, Astros and Indians, all of whom could end the season with more than the Dodgers' current 96 wins.

26 days ago, the Indians were 20 games in back of the Dodgers for the best record in baseball. After last night, they are 1 game back. Come on Phillies!

The other day I heard analysts discussing who would start game 2 of their eventual playoff series. But in my mind they should be talking about who will start game 1. Wood, Darvish, Kershaw, none of them have particularly good track records in the post-season.

How did home field work out for the Indians last year?

Worked pretty well. Swept the Red Sox, cleaned Toronto's clock pretty good, then reached extra innings of Game 7 of the World Series. Mind you, this was all without their #2, #3, and for a period their #4 starters. They also didn't have their All Star LF, and their starting C was out until late in the World Series.

Jumped out to a 1-0 series lead in the World Series thanks to home field advantage, too. Couldn't finish, but that was largely due to the injuries mentioned above.

Additionally, if it does happen to be the Indians vs. a West Coast team, home field advantage would play a much larger role due to the strenuous travel across the US.
