4/19/2018, From the management: We have moved the Bullpen over to its new permanent server setup. It's a bit much to explain here, but I think it's working mostly. We have an issue where some requests are blocked due to too many images on a page. I'm working on fixing that issue today. Please let me know on User_talk:Admin if you see any issues. Thank you as always for your support.

History, Comments, Contributions[edit]

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 also won their first nine season series, something that no other team would duplicate until the 2018 Arizona Diamondbacks (to put this in perspective, Arizona was not even yet a state in 1907). The Cubs 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.
