Dodgers continue their dominance by clinching seventh straight NL West title

Will the Los Angeles Dodgers ever be knocked off their NL West throne?

Based on this season’s results, it’s not looking like that will happen anytime soon.

With Tuesday’s 7-3 win against the Baltimore Orioles, the Dodgers became the first team to clinch a division championship this season. It’s the Dodgers seventh straight NL West title. That’s the longest division championship streak in MLB since the Atlanta Braves won 14 NL East titles in a row from 1991 through 2005.

Although it came against a basement-dwelling team, the continued dominance shown in Tuesday’s clinching victory was fitting of the dominance Los Angeles has shown throughout the entire season, and throughout most of the last decade.

One gets the feeling the Dodgers would rather not be reminded of the Braves in other regards….

I thought the Yankees did 9 straight between 1998 to 2006. One of the few times in history the Yankees have been overlooked.

Here's hoping the Dodgers are still hungover when they hit Citi Field this weekend.

At least the Braves managed to win a World Series during their run.

How did the Braves win 14-in-a-row when they came in 2nd to the Expos in 1994?

MLB's official stance is that there were no division winners in 1994, so that season doesn't count.

I thought the Yankees did 9 straight between 1998 to 2006.


Yes, the author dropped the ball here. This is still just the third longest division title streak.
