    If the Yankees can do it for 10 more games in a row, they would beat the ’94 Indians one-season mark of 48.

      Good to see, after all these years, RAB is still mining WW for ideas on what to write on:

      @ Steve L.:
      Flattered? :)

      Just amazed. When they were doing it four years ago, I understood it, because this was a popular blog. But, now? I thought that no one read this one any more! :-)

      I think this was posted on the Yankees game (or post-game) last (Sunday) night before either WW or RAB got to it. I could be wrong.

      Yesterday AM, the Yankees PR department tweeted that it was 39 games. That’s what made me run the PI search to see if it was a record or near it.

      With a 3 run first inning today, and they are still batting, NY is now just 7 games away from setting the record.
