Tone's club captured four world championships in a five-season stretch; it won a record 14 consecutive Fall Classic contests; and New York's three World Series titles in a row (1 998-2000) has been matched by a mere trio of other teams in history; not surprisingly, two of them past Yankee dynasties (1936-39 and 1949-52; the other, by the way, were the Oakland A's of 1972-74). [...] the '98 Yankees set an A.L. record for most wins (1 14 in a 162-game schedule) in a regular season, shattering the mark set by the 1954 Cleveland Indians (1 1 1 in a 154-game schedule; the 1906 Chicago Cubs' 1 16 victories represent the major league record).
