Allow me to introduce an alternative approach that attempts to balance the best teams' record of achievement and how dominant they were in the league at the time with who their core players were and how good they were relative to both their time and in historical context. My approach is intended to provide the basis for a multi-dimensional structured analysis involving the performance of the best teams and their players.
My one basic requirement for any team to be considered for a place among the eight best teams of the twentieth century in each major league is that the team have a record of consistent winning achievement over a timeframe of no less than five consecutive years. Any team that has multiple (as in, more than one) first place finishes over a minimum of five years is open for consideration as a "best" team.
