Schizo Streaks

So what's the most alternating wins and losses?

The most is 16, done twice since 1960. It was first done by the Phillies between June 3 and June 20, 1974. The ironic part is that after the "anti-streak", they went 20 games without a "one-game streak" (and nine games before it, as well!) Then the Dodgers did it, though it took them...two and a half months. Huh? Well, they happened to begin their streak on June 6, 1981, just five days before the two-month strike. When play continued on August 10, they picked up right where they left off, ripping off 11 more one-gamers through August 21. Now that's tough to do!
