I should mention here that winning 125 games in an MLB season is pretty much unheard of. Very few teams will hit 100 wins in a season. At this moment, with only about 2-3 games to go in this season, the Yankees are only at 97 wins - the Philadelphia Phillies have the most, with 99. So that 1998 season was pretty amazing. (And for the record, that 125 game record includes the postseason - the team won 114 games during the regular season that year - still, nothing to turn your nose up at. The record for most wins during the regular season is held by both the 1906 Chicago Cubs and the 2001 Seattle Mariners at 116 apiece, but neither team went on to win the World Series in their respective years...
