Joe, so the current Raiders could take a page from the '81 A's season! {sorry for the cheap shot, silver and black nation!}

No, Gerry, sorry. I meant a team streak. Clearly individual streaks must be respected from season to seaon.

Off the top of my head..if you look at pitchers with 160+ innings in a season in the NL and you look at run support. 2010 he is around 6th worst. In 2009 he was like 8th worst. 2008 he had THE worst. 2007 he had THE worst. and 2006 i think he was around 20th. So most seasons he LITERALLY had no run support. You know who has the 2nd most this year?? Jonathan Sanchez. go figure. stupid Giants Offense.

They went 24-6 in their first thirty games. They allowed no more than three runs in all of those six losses. Their first "bad game" did not come until game number 31 of the season.

Talk about scripting your first 30 plays!

Pitching always seemed to be their problem in those years. Most of the starters they used during that streak were gone shortly thereafter.

In the first 17 games, the Sox gave up no more than two runs. Needless to say, over 20 games it was a pretty successful streak, (16-3-1).

Neil L, does this apply to Ripken and Gehrig?
