The Cleveland Indians' 22-game winning streak is the second longest in MLB.

With the Indians' 3-2 win over the Kansas City Royals on Thursday evening, the Indians added to their American League record winning streak. Also, they surpassed the 1935 Chicago Cubs' streak of 21 wins. Will they be able to perform the feat which many baseball historians believe is impossible, that is, will they be able to topple the 1916 New York Giants' record of 26 consecutive wins?

1. I guess they stopped praying to Jobu and did it themselves

Yes, I know they have had a good season. A major league quote is just so appropriate

3. They now have mini-baseball head demi-gods under Jobu, who is still the supreme.

5. One cannot help but wonder...

What will become of the "Heads"?

Collector's items fore sure!

Perhaps they will auction them for charity.

6. Another baseball miracle...

 



...right on the heels of the Chicago Cubs. And with all the new athletes stepping up and replacing the old stars. A new home run record this year? All sure signs of the apocalypse-what with Trump and all that he brings....
