Cubs Trivia:

Two teams hold the record for most wins in a season. Name the clubs, the years, and the number of wins.
Please don't feed the psychos.

Cubs in 1906, 7 or 9 -- I'll guess 1906.
Seattle in 2001

Before Seattle, I think the 1954 Indians had the AL record with 114 wins. None of the teams won the WS (Cubs, Mariners or Indians).

With great trepidation, I dare to disagree with Spriggs. I think the '54 Indians won "only" 111 games. I also think 3 teams in the AL went over 100 wins (Yankees and a team that shall not be named).

I know the feeling. Part of my post was wrong also. Only 2 AL teams won more than 100 games that year. The team that shall not be named won only 94 (in a 154-game season) and finished 17 (!) games out.
