The Oakland A's are baseball's hottest team after a record-setting win streak that has made them favorites to win the World Series. Check out these facts on the Oakland Athletics.

They've won 20 straight games in a row, thanks to great pitching, timely hitting and an easy schedule. Here's a closer look at the hottest team in baseball - the Oakland A's.

1 The A's winning streak is the longest in baseball history since the Chicago Cubs won 21 in a row in 1935. That's 67 years ago - four years before games were shown on television!

1Oakland A's shortstop, Miguel Tajada, knocked in the game-winning run for Oakland in the team's 18th and 19th wins. So far during this streak, Miguel is hitting .372 and has become a favorite to win the American League MVP Award.

1 Money can't buy love or a good baseball team. The Oakland A's have moved into first place in the American League's West division during the streak. The team's payroll is less than half of the Texas Rangers' payroll (who are in last place.)

1 Oakland is the third stop in the Athletics' history. The team was formed in Philadelphia in 1901 where they played until 1955 when they moved to Kansas City. In 1968, the team moved to Oakland and changed to the gold and green colored uniforms they now wear.

1 The Oakland A's last won the World Series in 1989 when the defeated the San Francisco Giants in a series that was interrupted by an earthquake. The massive quake damaged San Francisco's Candlestick Park and the series was postponed for ten days. Once the two teams returned to firm ground, the A's beat their crosstown rivals in the series, 4-0.
