    • -The Chicago Cubs in 1906 won 116 games. This remains the record for wins in one season.

      -The Cubs also won 223 games in two years (1906–1907), which is the record for wins in a two-season span, and 322 games over three years (1906–1908), which is the record for wins over a three-season span.

      -They won 426 games over a four-season span (1906–1909), which is the record for wins over a four-year span, and they won 530 games over a five-season span (1906–1910), which is the record for wins over a period of five years.

      -The Cubs won 622 games over a six-year period (1905–1910), which is a record, by far. The only other team to win 600 games in a six-year span was the Cardinals of the 1940s, although many teams have lost 600 games in six years, proving that it is easier to stay in last place than it is to stay in first.

      -The Cubs won 715 games in seven years (1904–1910); this also is a record.

      -They won 807 games in an eight-year period (1904–1911), which, again, is a record; the Yankees won 799 between 1936 and 1943.

      -They won 898 games between 1904 and 1912, which is a record for wins over a nine-year period.

      -They won 986 between 1904 and 1913, which is a record for wins over any ten-year period.

      This all within the parameters of the 154 game schedule!!
