Streaky Stuff

Found out some interesting little information on the 1916 New York Giants while looking at teams records in Baseball Reference.Com while doing research on teams being sold on E-Bay.

John McGraw's Giants started off 2-13, and then got hot winning 17 consecutive games to get their record to 19-13.

During the season they would start sagging again and would find themselves at 59-62, in which they would go on a even bigger winning streak, a 26-game winning streak (if I remember right, is the MLB record that the 2002 Oakland Athletics threatened during their 25-game winning streak that set an A.L. Record)!

Speaking of which, the 2002 Athletics finished that season on a 35-8 tear, reminiscent of the 1984 Detroit Tigers' 35-5 start.

Just interesting, streaky stuff that caught my eye.
