    Yeah I only included the 9 best teams record wise since 1947 and just seeded them. The 1989 A's were awesome as well.

    Actually the 1985 Cards got ripped off. I still considered them the Champs. Guy was out at first, game over. 85 Cards had maybe the best Defensive team fielding wise of all-time and they were speedy on the base paths.

    I definitely think the 1961 Yankees were the best team, they had the Pitching and Hitting. After that it's arguable who is #2 IMO. The 1998 Yankees were dominant but I think the 1986 Mets and 1975 Reds could've maybe beaten them in a series.

    There is always, usually a big upset in a Playoff. I really don't think it's a big upset. Mets had the Pitching to get it done, every starting pitcher on that team arguably was an all-star from Doc, Darling, Ojeda, and Fernandez. I think Pitching is more important than hitting in a series, yes you have to score runs too but when you have 3 or 4 pitchers only giving up 1 or 2 runs in a game your chances of winning are above 50%. Anyway ultimately I have the 1961 Yankees beating the 1986 Mets 4-3 to take the Title of best ever. Congrats to the 1961 Yankees and their fans as they are the best franchise of all-time as well.

    I have the 1986 Mets beating the 1998 Yankees 4-3 in a thrilling Game 7. I have the 1961 Yankees beating the 1970 Orioles 4-2. -That leaves the 1986 Mets vs the 1961 Yankees for the Title of Greatest ever. Best of 7, Doc Gooden vs Whitey Ford in Game 1 from Yankees stadium!

    I have the 1970 Orioles beating the 1953 Yankees 3 games to 2. I have the 1961 Yankees beating the 1984 Tigers 3 games to 1. I have the 1986 Mets beating the 1975 Reds 3 games to 2. I have the 1998 Yankees beating the 2016 Cubs 3 games to 2! So the matchups now look like this in the Fantasy League regarding the next round: #1 1998 Yankees vs #5 1986 Mets - 7 game series #2 1961 Yankees vs #3 1970 Orioles - 7 game series -The toughest by far to judge was the 75 Reds vs the 86 Mets. I chose the 86 Mets because they have the better overall Pitching. That was like a 50/50 series in my mind. Reds did have one hell of a batting lineup though.

    Of course now I watch Game 7 at times again. The full game is actually on YouTube. When it was on live it was tough to watch.

    Game 7 had me so scared at times I kept walking away from the TV. I couldn't even watch it at times and was nervous as hell through the last few innings. When Chap gave up that HR, I thought for sure Cubs would lose.

    I had no idea you were a Cubs fan. You are one of my new best friends now. Hopefully you Post here throughout the season. I have been a Cubs fan since that 1984 Season. I watched them all summer long on WGN that year and thought that they would win it all. Since then I have followed them closely. Andre Dawson's 1987 Season was so entertaining as well. He was slugging HR's out left and right! Yes we finally won the WS, the best thing that has happened to me sports wise ever with the exception of the Colts winning the SB in 2006. Kris Bryant winning the NL MVP was the cherry on Top.

    Yeah I have had nothing to Post for a few days now except my all-time best teams list, it's been quiet around the league.

    Here is the all-time Playoff bracket: #1 1998 Yankees vs the winner of #8 1955 Dodgers/#9 2016 Cubs (play in game) #2 1961 Yankees vs #7 1984 Tigers - 5 game series #3 1970 Orioles vs #6 1953 Yankees - 5 game series #4 1975 Reds vs #5 1986 Mets - 5 game series -What I did with the 3 way tie between the Orioles, Reds, and Mets I just gave the higher Seed to the team that won 108 games first. Only way I could do it because 1 team didn't out do the other! *The higher seed has HFA My play in game results: I have the 2016 Cubs beating the 1955 Dodgers, so the 2016 Cubs now have to face the 1998 Yankees in a 5 game series. Stay tuned for the rest. 2016 Cubs advance.

    Glad you found it, I was getting ready to message you but couldn't remember your exact handle LOL. Cubs winning it all has eased my pain with the Colts missing the Playoffs.

    I think all 9 of those teams I listed were special. The Big Red Machine had Pete Rose, Johnny Bench, and Joe Morgan + Sparky Anderson was a Great manager. The 1986 Mets had an awesome Pitching staff with Doc Gooden, Ron Darling, Bob Ojeda, and Sid Fernandez + hitters like Darryl Strawberry, Keith Hernandez, and Gary Carter. My Cubs of last season had an awesome Pitching staff as well with Jake Arrieta, Jon Lester, Kyle Hendricks, and John Lackey + Chap in relief! Kris Bryant won League MVP as well.

    I actually wasn't born yet in 1961 but going by research and studying the Rosters I would put the 1961 team the best, having said that out of the teams I have seen live I would agree the 1998 Yankees were the best. Hard to argue against a team that went 114-48.
  17. 2006Coltsbestever

    ALL MLB 2018 Astros Repeat ?

    After doing research here are the best teams that have won the World Series winning % wise since 1947. I took teams from the 1947 Season to now because before the 1947 Season African Americans weren't allowed to play (Jackie Robinson rule), WW2 was over by then as well. 1. 1998 NY Yankees 114-48 70.4% 2. 1961 NY Yankees 109-53 67.3% 3. 1970 Baltimore Orioles 108-54 66.7% 1975 Cincinnati Reds 108-54 66.7% 1986 NY Mets 108-54 66.7% -3 tied for 3rd in winning % 6. 1953 NY Yankees 99-52 65.6% 7. 1984 Detroit Tigers 104-58 64.2% 8. 1955 Brooklyn Dodgers 98-55 64.1% 9. 2016 Chicago Cubs 103-58 64.0% (had 1 game called due to weather so played 161 counted games towards W/L's) -These are teams that won at least 64% of their Regular Season games and won the World Series. I studied all of these Rosters and IMO, the 1961 Yankees were the best team out of this bunch. That was the season Maris hit 61 HR's, Mantle hit 54 HR's, and Yogi Berra was a fantastic Catcher. The main part of their starting Pitching staff consisted of Whitey Ford who went 25-4, Bill Stafford 14-9, and Ralph Terry 16-3. They had a reliever by the name of Luis Arroyo who was 15-5 and had 29 Saves. Feel free to chime in Baseball junkies, Happy New Year!

    Yeah it is actually M Colts M - he is a Cubs fan but I agree I wish we had more fans of different teams. That Buccolts guy is a Pirates fan so he will probably Post here. Not an AL team but different.

    Hopefully the others that were Posting on the old Thread know about this one. Like Gavin and 'M Colts M' I think is his handle, he started Posting during the WS. I see Jared and Princeton Posted once. Brent knows about this as well so Radio Girl knows.

    ALL MLB 2018 Astros Repeat ?

    Yeah when I do my list it looks like 1947 until now seems to be the popular choice. I will list the Top 20 teams by winning % that won the WS and then we can break down their Rosters and other criteria and comment on those teams.

    ALL MLB 2018 Astros Repeat ?

    Cards always worry me, I was shocked the Pirates weren't better last season. They were Good in 2015.
  22. 2006Coltsbestever

    ALL MLB 2018 Astros Repeat ?

    Yeah a list of greatest teams from 1947 and on would be real legit because African Americans weren't allowed to play before the 1947 Season - The Jackie Robinson rule. I would have to go back and see who the Top 20 teams are winning % wise since 1947 before I do that long list. I do realize winning % doesn't totally determine who the actual best team is. I will just list the Top 20 within the next few days and then everyone can choose who they think the best team is based on other criteria as well.
  23. 2006Coltsbestever

    ALL MLB 2018 Astros Repeat ?

    Winning % isnt the only thing I agree. It's eye test, Championships won as a core, and overall talent on Rosters as well. The 1989 A's would be very tough to beat and they didnt even win 100 games. They were 99-63.
  24. 2006Coltsbestever

    ALL MLB 2018 Astros Repeat ?

    I will do from 1971 and on and actually list the 10 best teams winning % wise. Reason for 1971 is, that was the year I was born. Seems like the way to go. I think most people in here probably would pick the 1998 Yankees as being the best team since then but Brent is a Reds fan and the BigRed Machine of 1975 was awesome! I have a friend who is a little older than me and he was a teenager when those Reds teams won the WS. He tells me all the time that the 1975 team was the best team he ever seen.

    ALL MLB 2018 Astros Repeat ?

    I can at least say this I was born before the 1971 World Series so in my lifetime which is 45 years now, 46 World Series played (1971-2016) the 2016 Cubs have the 5th best winning % of any Champion. Only the 1998 Yankees 114-48, 1975 Reds/1986 Mets = 108-54, and 1984 Tigers = 104-58 were more dominant. That is Great stuff! Cubs had 1 game postponed otherwise they may have tied the 1984 Tigers? They were 103-58.
