At the moment, there seems to be nothing that can stop the New York Yankees.
Through their first 37 games, they are 28-9.
This is the best record of all baseball and there are plenty of reasons for the Yankees’ recent success.
The Yankees have historically had the good fortune to dominate through their first 37 games.
This is the first time since 1998 that they have started with such an impressive record.
An MLB statistics page on Twitter tweeted a short Yankees history, showing the Yankees’ best start through 37 games and what happened in October later that year.
Yankees’ best record after 36 games in one season:
1928: 30-7, WS wins
1939: 30-7, WS wins
1926: 28-9, AL Penant wins
1998: 28-9, WS wins
2022: 28-9, ?????

Title No. 28?
All the signs seem to point to another Yankees championship.
Of course, there is plenty of time left in the season and things can change.
But from the first reading, it really looks like a good ball club that can beat you in different ways.
Title No. 28 may work for this group.
All the signs are pointing towards it.
This team has a rich history with generations of success.
All of their recent hot starts have finally been rewarded with some October sets, so in this race they are good for them now.
The team is red-hot and shows no signs of stopping anytime soon.
You can’t just sleep on them because they match their greatest historical achievement.
Again, the last time they had such a hot start was in 1998 and that year, they won 114 games on their way to winning their 24th World Series title.
We’ll see if it’s finally becoming a virtue for another title.
