You're fast. I just saw it and was going to post. I guess I shouldn't have watched the replay before I posted. :D

:D ....   especially how humble this young man deals with all this season`s considerable ups and downs remains my personal feelgood story ....

Major league record is 26 - 1916 NY Giants - and they finished the season with a record of only 86 - 66! There must be a story there, but I don't know what it is.

Some contention too that this isn't the true "winning streak" record, as one of the Giants' games ended in a tie. (And what's the story there?) The record for the longest winning streak that doesn't include a tie belongs to the 1935 Chicago Cubs, who won 21 in a row before finally losing. After tonight's victory, Cleveland's only two away from equaling that. 

Regarding the Dodgers' collapse, I take solace only in the evaporation of comparisons to the 1998 Yankees that had begun to emerge just before said collapse began. :)

Obviously a great time to be a Tribe fan.  Hell, it's plain MLB history at this point.  Most nights they make it look effortless.  Witness the 11-0 destruction of the Tigers tonight.

I'm figuring on Win #20 with Corey Kluber taking the mound.

It really is amazing. It's not just a prolific offense, or great starting pitching, or great bullpen. It is basically all of the above. And there are not a lot of household names in that lineup, especially in the outfield [anyone got any of these guys on their all-star squad?: Jay Bruce, Lonnie Chisenhall, Bradley Zimmer, Austin Jackson, Brandon Guyer, Abraham Almonte, Tyler Naquin, Greg Allen, injured Michael Brantley]. Here's hoping that Jose Ramirez forearm bruise is not a big deal, and that centerfield does not become a problem given Zimmer's hand surgery -- Jason Kipnis is going to get some time out there! I think Austin Jackson is serviceable. Carlos Carrasco took care of business last night. Kluber up next. Go Tribe!

Not including this NFL season

The Browns have won 20 games the past 5 seasons

Oddly enough, including this season they've still only won 20 games in five seasons. ;)

Ghost, back in those days, the Giants started their games at 4:00 pm to appeal to the Wall Street guys who got off work at 3:00.  There were no radio broadcasts of the games back then, so games were finished in under two hours (no commercial breaks).  There were no ballpark lights back then, so the games ended in a tie at sunset.

Tribe has officially tied A's for longest winning streak in American League history!

Kluber is the greatest pitcher I have ever seen in an Indians uniform.

What is that, like 500 miles? You should go. Maybe Jaret Wright will let you stay at his place in San Clemente. :cool:

Just watched Cleveland, down by one in the bottom of the ninth with two outs and down to their last strike, tie it with a double off the left-field wall.  Now going into extra innings.  :)

... annnndddd just another routine Indians win. 😄 Wow! That really did have a postseason vibe to it... Congratulations to the Tribe fans here. It would be fantastic to see Cleveland go all the way this year after the Cubs did it last year.

Here's Lindor's two-out, two-strike double that tied it in the bottom of the 9th:

Tribe ties it

... and Bruce's walk off hit in the bottom of the 10th: 

Cleveland wins 22nd in a row

Oh, and as Michael Kay pointed out tonight, if Aaron Judge batted only against the Baltimore Orioles all year long, he'd have the greatest offensive season in MLB history. ☺️
