[edit] History, Comments, Contributions

The 1907 Chicago Cubs are not as well-known as the 1908 edition of the team - the last one to win a World Series - or the 1906 edition, which set the all-time record for winning percentage, but they were just as great a team. They got off to the best twenty-game start in team history at 16-4, and never looked back, finishing with 107 wins, 17 games ahead of the second-place Pittsburgh Pirates. They then swept the Detroit Tigers in the 1907 World Series, four games to none with one tie.

The 1906 and 1907 Cubs are the only teams in history to post back-to-back season with a winning percentage of .700 or better.
