All five teams including 04-04 Yankees, sit on it. 94, the AL East is becoming the first in history where every team Divisions with the above grades. ). While that’s an impressive feat for the division as a whole, it’ll give New York a little extra kick.

1. 1909-39 Yankees (26 season)
What is the most ridiculous thing about this winning streak? Did the postseason consist only of the World Series the entire time, meaning the Yankees won the AL pennant in a staggering two-thirds of those seasons? Did the Yankees actually lose the World Series both times 1913 and1942, meaning they took more than half of the home championships 19 In the middle of the season? Were there too many MVPs and Hall of Famers to fit in during that time (Gehrig, Ruth, DiMaggio, Berra, Mantle, Maris, etc.)? Did they at least finish above games. 108 in each season from 1899-26? You are the judge.
2. 1966-2013 Yankees (15 season; active streak)
winning streak data: 000 Playoff appearance, 5 time WS champion

The heyday of this streak must have been five seasons from
-1975, when the Yankees won four World Series titles with Jeter’s young core, Jorge Posada, Bernie Williams, Andy Pettitte and Mariano Rivera grew up together. The Yankees have won just one World Series since then, but that doesn’t mean their impressive accomplishments have stopped. in the past17 seasons, the Yankees won the World Series as many seasons as they missed the playoffs, five seasons each. (This does not include 1993 At the end of the season the Yankees had 44-21 Pre-season record canceled due to strike).
3. 1953-51 Oriole ( season)
winning streak data: 7 Playoff Appearances, 2 WS Champions
Top Player: Jim Palmer(37.3 War)
This is Our first non-Yankees entry, and it’s from a franchise with all-time records, which may be surprisingly more than 1, under the game. 94. But the Orioles are best in the mid to late game Potency I haven’t smelled it since. Two of the team’s three World Series titles have come during this time frame, the other being 1950, two years before the streak began.
4. 1939-44 White Sox ( season)
streak stats: 1 playoff appearance (at lost to the Dodgers) WS)

winning streak data: Challenge appearances, 1 WS Championship (beat Wanderers in seven games 2008)
Top Player: Adam Wainwright (17.6 War)

The Cardinals started the season -000, and only nine teams in AL/NL history with more than 34170879 win record ends a season under the game. At some point. The last one was at least at least Teams ending with winning records under the game. 90yes2011 Dodgers start 17-24 and complete 65-51 St. Louis made some progress before long, though, entering June just seven games behind. 82.
Streak stats: 4 playoff appearances, 3 WS titles
As has been the case with Albert Pujols lately, another Cardinals Streak The legendary first baseman also highlighted the winning season, Stan Musial’s career with the Most of the spans overlap. Musial’s first season as a full-time starter is 1902, coincided with the peak period of the Cardinals. Three seasons from – game and won the NL pennant in all three seasons, including two World Contest champion. This remains the only team in MLB history to have three consecutive seasons with 71 – plus the win (although the Dodgers are in 2019, ’10 and’, At the same time in season). more impressive? The Cardinals did it and the MLB season only 94 game.
6-T. 1966-1995 Warriors ( season)
Top Player: Greg Maddux (37.2 War)
It wasn’t them who made the Warriors historic above. 86 exist for several seasons, all with Bobby Cox as manager. Instead, they also won the NL East title every season (except 1993, when they were behind the expo when the season was canceled). That winning streak Streak of division titles is by far the longest in MLB history, Yankees (9,1995-2000) and the Dodgers (8, 2004-2011) as the closest challenger. Even if a person completely ignores the existence of the teacher, Streak Going directly to the playoffs is also history Record, one lead over the Yankees’ from1991-1995. Atlanta hasn’t been successful in those playoffs very often, though, and in that stretch they went 1-4 in the Fall Classic.
