Tom Verducci's Top 10 Teams of All Time
Murderers Row. The Yankees went 110-44, outscored opponents by 371 runs, and then ambushed Pittsburgh in the World Series. A couple of guys named Ruth and Gehrig hit 107 homers and scored 307 runs.
Joe DiMaggio hit .381 for a team that outscored its opponents by -- get this -- 411 runs.
A complete team. You can make a case for No. 1, given the post-racial integration realities.
Six Hall of Famers, including Lefty Grove, Al Simmons and Eddie Collins, and 104 wins. (Pictured are Jimmie Foxx, Mickey Cochrane and Al Simmons)
The Big Red Machine won 108 games and beat Boston in a thrilling World Series.
The M & M Boys -- Mickey Mantle and Roger Maris -- beat up on the AL, but the pitching staff also allowed the second-fewest runs.
They scored the most runs, allowed the fewest, won 108 games and blitzed through the postseason going 7-1.
The 1906 team won 116 games, but lost the World Series. Can't make this list if you can't win the World Series. Tinker-to-Evers-to-Chance closed the deal in 1907. (Pictured: first baseman Frank Chance)
With Ruth and Gehrig leading the way, they scored 1,002 runs and swept the World Series.
Well, it was another world back then. They went 102-36, used 27 players all year (including nine pitchers) and never lost more than two games in a row. (Pictured: Honus Wagner)
