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.
