Welcome

Welcome to thebestbaseballteams.com. Contributing to the never-ending debate on the best teams in history, my approach is to identify the best teams of the twentieth century in each major league through a multidimensional structured analysis that factors in each team's record of achievement over a minimum of five years (as defined by their core players), the extent to which they dominated their league, and how good their core players were relative to both their time and in historical context. To provide the most analytical rigor, this analysis will be a dynamic ranking, beginning with the first decade of the twentieth century, in which each subsequent team being considered is measured against those that came before. This means, the "final standings" will not be known until we have covered the full century. In addition to surveying through time the best teams in each league, each chapter includes a Transparency Annex providing the details for each team. I also include Transparency Annexes explaining in greater detail my methodological approach. I invite the reader to use this as a shared framework for analysis, so you can draw your own conclusions as to which were the best teams of the twentieth century.
