The other night, a writer I greatly respect noted that he didn’t think the Dodgers were getting enough credit for just how special this season has been. On Tuesday, I was on a radio spot and was asked how the casual fan should be viewing the Dodgers right now and it just kind of all fell into place.
This is one of the greatest regular-season teams in baseball history so far.
Through 106 games, the Dodgers have won 75. You know who else started 75-31? The 1927 Yankees. No, seriously, I’m not kidding.
Here are the teams that had more wins through 106 games from 1913 (that’s as far back as searchable data goes, unfortunately) to this season.
