The Cleveland Indians on Wednesday won their American League-record 21st straight game, tying them with the 1935 Chicago Cubs for the longest win streak in the modern era of Major League Baseball.
The Tribe is still looking up at the 1916 New York Giants, a team that baseball recognizes with a 26-game win streak. But should that record even be acknowledged?
The Giants won 12 games in a row that season before tying Pittsburgh, 1-1, on Sept. 8. They went on to win 14 more before losing the second game of a doubleheader to the Boston Braves on Sept. 30. The Giants finished 86-66, in fourth place.
Does that tie mean the streak shouldn’t count? Should the Cubs and Indians be tied for the all-time mark? Cast your vote.
