What team was the best modern major league baseball team of all-time?
Even though our Buccos miraculously beat the Yanks in the 1960 WS, the 50's-60's Yanks (15 pennants in 18 years plus 10 WS champs) later on with Mantle, Maris, Berra, Howard, Ford, IMO were the best say post 1945. The second best would be the latter Yanks 1996-2000 (4 WS champs in 5 years including a 3-peat) with Rivera, A Rod, Pettite, Jeter, Bernie Williams etc. I only offer these out of respect for that franchise because I'm a Yankee hater through and through and will always bleed Pittsburgh Black and Gold.
I'm biased but, the early 60s Dodgers!
How strange. You start a thread posing a formidable question.........and never state your opinion or enter the fray. It's sort of like how long does one have to pull the second cord on their parachute if the first one fails? The rest of their life! (cue the Jeopardy theme Alex)
70s Reds for me. Biased Big Red Machine post.
Johnny Bench, T. Perez, J. Morgan, D. Concepcion, P. Rose, K. Griffey, C. Geronimo, G. Foster
Certainly a great team. Rose was the 60/70's version of Mike Trout but a foot shorter. That 70's Reds-Pirates rivalry was exceeded only by the 70's Steelers-Raiders rivalry.
I tip my Pirate hat to the St. Louis Cardinals. A well run organization.
