What team has the shortest "longest losing streak" within a season in MLB history?

Don't know if the wording of the title makes sense, but I want to know what team had the longest losing streak that was the shortest in MLB history (or at least the live ball era)

A completely made up example (LLS -Longest Losing Streak):

2016
Yankees LLS 5
Red Sox LLS 6
Braves LLS 8
2015
Yankees LLS 7
Red Sox LLS 4
Braves LLS 3.

The Braves would have the shortest longest losing streak

• I'm going to take a guess and say the 2001 Seattle Mariners who's shortest longest winning streak was 4, that is the season they won 116 games. Jun 13, 2016 at 19:30
• @New-To-IT I thought so too along with the 1998 Yankees. I used those teams as benchmarks, and was able to find teams with shorter losing streaks thus far.

• The wording certainly makes sense. The "diameter" of a mathematical object can be defined as the longest of all the shortest paths between all possible pair of points in the object. (That is, find the two points where the shortest path between them is maximal; that's the diameter. On a square, for example, the points are two opposing corners and the diameter is the length of the diagonal.) There are many other similar definitions in mathematics. Jun 13, 2016 at 22:41

• Does anyone understand why the links here have `game_start=10&game_end=135`? That would seem to me to be restricting things to only a bit of the season which seems wrong, but I'm not confident enough to change it. May 15, 2018 at 8:23
