  • Greatest Teams of All Time poll

    Let's vote for the top 20 greatest teams. We will use a similar scoring system as the recent top 20 position players

    1st-10 point
    2nd-9 points
    3rd-8 points
    ....

    I will open up a separate poll for each place. Some things to consider

    1) number of championships
    2) team domination
    3) number of HoFers
    4) strength of other top competition
    5) strength of league.

      Hey guys a question for you all. How should we handle votes for different parts of one dynasty? Example: 1975-76 Reds. Some may vote for the '75 team others for the '76 team. Should the votes be combined or should the '75 votes and the '76 votes be listed separately?

        I think it should one or the other. If the poll read greatest dynasty of all-time then yea....but we should leave it a single season.

          --I think votes for what is basically the same team ought to be combined. There would be no point to ranked the 75 AND 76 Reds (or 30-31 A's or 26-27 Yankees etc), even though both may be top 20 seasons. For all practical purposes they are the same team.
          --I will be voting based on multi-year achievement, although I'll follow the format of listing a single year. No one year wonders will be getting my vote, regardless of how great that were in that season. Thus, no 54 Indians or 01 Mariners. In fact, I'll have a minimum requirement of 3 pennants over a 5 year period (for teams of the divisional era, 3 division titles with 2 pennants will be my cut off) to make my list. I will only be considering post 1900 teams, although the 1890s Orioles and Beaneaters desrve at least a nod of respect.
          --My personal nominees;
          1901-03 Pirates (1902)
          1906-10 Cubs (06)
          1907-09 Tigers (09)
          1910-14 A's (not sure yet which was best season)
          1911-13 Giants (speciific year tbd)
          1912-16 (or 15-18) Red Sox (tbd)
          1921-24 Giants (tbd)
          1922-24 Yankees (tbd)
          1926-28 Yankees (27)
          1929-31 A's (tbd)
          1930-34 Cardinals (34)
          --might make an exception for 34-35 Tigers
          1936-39 Yankees (39)
          1941-43 Yankees (41)
          1942-26 Cardinals (42)
          1949-53 Yankees (tbd)
          1952-56 Dodgers (53 or 55?)
          1955-58 Yankees (tbd)
          1957-59 Braves (undecided if going to playoff in 59 should count)
          1961-64 Yankees (61)
          1963-66 Dodgers (tbd)
          1964-68 Cardinals (67)
          1969-71 Orioles (71)
          1971-75 A's (74)
          1970-74 Pirates (70)
          1972-76 Reds (75)
          1976-80 Yankees (77)
          1977-81 Dodgers (tbd)
          1988-92 A's (89)
          1991-93 Blue Jays (92)
          1991-95 Braves (93)
          1994-99 Indians (95)
          1996-00 Braves (98)
          1996-00 Yankees (98)
          --The bolded teams are the ones I'll choose my 10 for the first ballot from.
