MLB Dodgers keep on winning

No Dodger team in history has had a stretch of 40 wins in 48 games.

The best 50-game stretch ever is 43-7 by the 1912 New York Giants. The Dodgers can't match that — yet — but if they go 42-8 it would be the best 50-game run since 1942.

Here's the rest of the list (from SI.com):

New York Giants 1912 43 7
New York Yankees 1941 42 8
St. Louis Cardinals 1942 42 8
Pittsburgh Pirates 1909 41 9
New York Giants 1913 41 9
Philadelphia A’s 1931 41 9
New York Yankees 1939 41 9
Boston Red Sox 1946 41 9
Brooklyn Dodgers 1953 41 9
Cincinnati Reds 1975 41 9
New York Yankees 1998 41 9
Cleveland Indians 1951 40 10
Cleveland Indians 1954 40 10
Kansas City Royals 1977 40 10
Seattle Mariners 2001 40 10

My Mets should of and could have won all 3 of those games. It's a testament to just how good the Dodgers are right now.

Collins should have answered the Either PH appearence last night with Feliciano....but OH WELL>

Great team in LA.

How far does everyone think the Dodgers will go? I honestly picked them to go to the WS to play the Tigers back in Spring Training. & I have kept that prediction all year long. I see the Braves giving them trouble and I see the Red Sox giving the Tigers trouble. It has been very fun watching the Dodgers go on this run since June 22nd.

2 months ago Donnie Baseball was about 4 games away from being let go...amazing how much smarter a manager gets when his players all get healthy at the same time....

And when you call up a stud like Yasiel Puig and just rakes the ball from the get go, and plays tremendous defense. Also, it does help that guys like Carl Crawford and Hanley Ramirez were able to find their old form.
