I think its hard to top the 1927 Yanks, what a line up and of course no free agency like the modern Yankess. I also would say the 1955 Brooklyn Dodgers, a lot of Hall of Famers on that team, crazy they only won one in Brooklyn. 1954 Indians set the record for most wins in a season which stood until the late '90s, but they choked in the Series. I have a soft spot for the Indians of the '90s, of course they didn't win the Series.

Yep, just like all Cleveland teams, close, but can't finish it off.

1965 Twins. First pennant, and can't forget Jim Kaat! Of course we lost to a very good team in the Dodgers. (Sandy Koufax)

1964 St. Louis Cardinals. Probably the only team close in terms of play over the season was the 2004 team, and we saw how that ended.

Probably the '27 Yankees, and not just because of the duo of Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig. You had guys like Bob Meusel and Tony Lazzeri posting great averages and getting on base for the home run hitters. And the pitching staff was great all around; Waite Hoyte, Herb Pennock, and Urban Shocker all had great seasons. As for the best season from my Chicago Cubs, I'd probably have to go with the '29 Cubs. They had some greats like Rogers Hornsby and Hack Wilson. In fact, the '29 Cubs outfield is arguably the greatest 3-man unit in baseball history. The three (Riggs Stephenson, Kiki Cuyler, and Hack Wilson) combined for a .350 average, 71 homers and 371 RBIs.

I would either have to say 1966 or 1970 Orioles. They had some great pitching and hitting on those teams.

Wow, only the A's of the Bash Brothers Era get mentioned as a "Steroid Row" team? Lots of the above mentioned teams had multiple PED users on them...

Anyway, many "experts" pick the 1939 Yankees as that franchises best overall team. Managed by Hall of Fame MGR Joe McCarthy, they were 106-45 (967 runs scored, allowed only 556 for a +412 run differential!!!), and their Pythagorean W-L is even better at 111-40.

The '39 squad featured this set of starters:

C- Bill Dickey .302/.403/.513, 98 R, 24 HR, 105 RBI, 133 OPS+ (All Star, MVP-6, Hall of Fame)

1B- Babe Dahlgren .235/.312/.377, 15 HR, 89 RBI

2B- Joe Gordon .284/.370/.506, 92 R, 28 HR, 111 RBI, 123 OPS+ (All Star, MVP-9, Hall of Fame)

SS- Frankie Crosetti .233/.315/.332, 109 R, 10 HR, 56 RBI (All Star, led AL in PA, AB, and HBP)

3B- Red Rolfe .329/.404/.495, 139 R, 213 H, 46 2B, 10 3B, 14 HR, 80 RBI, 130 OPS+ (All Star, MVP-27)

LF- Charlie Keller .334/.447/.500, 87 R, 11 HR, 83 RBI, 143 OPS+ (MVP-22)

CF- Joe DiMaggio .381/.448/.671, 108 R, 30 HR, 126 RBI, 184 OPS+, (All Star, MVP, Hall of Fame)

RF- George Selkirk .306/.452/.517, 103 R, 23 HR, 101 RBI, 148 OPS+, (All Star)

Every starter on this team had double digits in HR, and that may very well be the first time that was accomplished in history. DiMaggio won the batting title and MVP, Red Rolfe had a career year, Dickey was in his prime, and the #4 OFer, Tommy Henrich added a fine season and 9 HRs too! Of course, with Lou Gehrig forced to retire and no guy named Babe Ruth (sorry Babe Dahlgren, you may have the name of one and position of the other, but just couldn't cut it), the '39 team seems to get forgotten by many casual fans. Not the flashy big boppers of Ruth/Gehrig or Mantle/Maris, but a MUCH better overall team!
