Harry Yeprem Jr. @HarryFromCBus🔁All of the guys who played on the 1916 New York Giants are dead, right?
Then just give the damn record to the Indians.
AMatti @AMatti8🔁@CodyArnold92 21 in a row. A new AL record. Tied with the Cubs 1935 in all of MLB. 1916 NY Giants have 26 but includes a tie.

Afro Samurai @Hcurr8🔁CLE tied with 1935 Cubs at 21 straight wins. 1916 Giants at 26 consecutive wins is the MLB gold standard. PS: There's no ties in baseball
Lee @Lee_in_MA🔁@MLBNetwork @Ken_Rosenthal 1916 Giants had 26 actual wins and a tie (between wins 12 & 13) was 1-1 & called due to rain after 8.5 innings

MDJ Online @mdjonline🔁AP Was There: #NewYork #Giants set #baseball win streak mark in 1916 #Sports mdjonline.com

1935 Cubs 21
Chip Douglass @Chip_Douglass🔁Graphic is wrong. 1916 Giants didn't win 26 games in a row; it was a 26 game non-losing streak. They tied in one of t twitter.com heir games.
Fedorov @eee_e_f🔁…1916 NY Giants
Josh @JoshinTX_🔁Same thing was typed in 2002 about the A's, 1916 about the Giants, and 1935 about the Cubs. It's so cool when history twitter.com repeats itself!
Little Walter🏌🏽 @HoodKnowledge7🔁 i want that 26th win.. 1916 Giants we coming for you! #RollTribe
Tara Sledjeski @TaraSledjeski🔁I'm just throwing this out there...
It's not a winning streak if you tie in the middle of it.
Sorry 1916 Giants.
Rick @ricknoche🔁@MLB How are we calling the 1916 giants 26 game win streak when it includes a tie? Maybe the term should be 26 game not losing streak?
Michæl Fleischhäuer @mike_fleisch🔁That 1916 giants all time MLB record of 26 wins in a row has an asterisk since one of those games ended and was counted as a tie
