Angel front-running through history

We've been in first place for 102 days so far this season. Where does that number rank in team history? Seventh, though chances are it will make it to #2 before all is said and done. Here's a complete list (minus the year-long losers):

  1. 2005
  2. 1985
  3. 1979
  4. 1986
  5. 1995
  6. 1982
  7. 2007
  8. 1984
  9. 1998
  10. 1983
  11. 2004
  12. 1989
  13. 1978
  14. 1970
  15. 1993, 1994
  16. 2006
  17. 1974, 1987
  18. 1997
  19. 2002
  20. 1999
  21. 1991
  22. 1962
  23. 1973, 1977, 2000, 2003
  24. 1967, 1969, 1971, 1975
  25. 1961, 1963, 1964, 1972, 1981, 1988, 1990
Biggest surprises? I don't recall 1985 being such a disappointment, and I was paying pretty good attention back then. Interesting to note that the team spent at least 53 days in first place each year from '82-86, plus another 17 days in '87....
