    The 11-1 run is 3rd best in baseball playoff history I think behind one of the Yankee teams and the 1976 Reds.

      Soon to be an out-of-date list. This time next month, everyone will be talking the 2021 White Sox 11-0 run.

            I'll say our 4 straight complete games by the 2005 starting pitchers makes us immortal in post season history.

              I doubt we'll ever see 4 straight complete games in a playoff series ever again.

                I doubt we'll see 4 straight complete games again. Let alone a playoff series.

                  You'll never see four straight complete games again. By the way the Yankees did it first if I remember right in 1956.

                  Regarding my third best comment, that's based on winning percentage according to the MLB record book. I think there was a Yankee team that went unbeaten in the expanded playoffs and the 76 Reds again I think went 9-1

                    The 1970 Baltimore Orioles were the best over-all team I ever saw in a World Series. They took on an incredibly great Cincy BIG RED MACHINE and beat them 4 games to 1. Brooks Robinson was a "god" in that series making one great play after another. I was back from Nam at the time and stationed at Ft. Knox Kentucky and watching the games with some buddies at the NCO club. Greatest display by a team I ever saw.

                      The 76 Reds went 7-0, since there was no DS back then.

                        The 76 Reds were an awesome team.

                          Thank you, I didn't really remember when I read that statistic.

                            The 1976 Reds were stupidly good.

                            Here's their starting lineup for Game 3 at Yankee Stadium. Your seven-hole hitter: Johnny Bench.



                            That lineup won six of the eight National League MVP Awards from 1970-1977. They won 102 games regular season games, and no pitcher won more than 15. Baseball Reference shows they used 13 pitchers for the entire season, including Sox immortal Rich Hinton.

                            I'd put my money on that team against any team of any era.
