I'm not ready to jump on the Cleveland "sure thing" wagon as yet...


These type of streaks in baseball can be a mixed blessing. Once a team finally loses a game, more often than not, it can be difficult regain the dynamic that created the winning streak. It is what happened to Oakland after the 20-game winning streak in '02, as the A's exited in playoff's first round. We've witnessed the Dodgers collapsed over the past couple of weeks. While these streaks are fun for players/fans going through them. I think managers prefer a team that performs consistently, without the extreme ups and downs.
