According to the internet these are the top 5 baseball teams of all time. From 1903 – 2015. Sorry If you don’t agree with the results Mets fans.

5. 1939 New York Yankees

  • The team finished with a record of 106–45, winning their 11th pennant and finishing 17 games ahead of the Boston Red Sox. They outscored their opponents by 411 runs, the largest run differential in the history of the game and also had seven pitchers win 10 games or more; only two other teams have done that. Six teammates hit over .300 in 1939, while eight were in double digits in home runs. In the World Series, they beat the Cincinnati Reds in 4 games. This marked the first time any team had won four consecutive World Series.

4. 1907 Chicago Cubs

  • The team finished in first place in the National League with a record of 107–45, 17 games ahead of the Pittsburgh Pirates. It was their second straight NL pennant. The Cubs faced the Detroit Tigers in the 1907 World Series, which they won four games to none (with one tie) for their first World Series victory. They played their home games at West Side Grounds (Park Factors: 106/101) where 422,550 fans witnessed their 1907 Cubs finish the season with a .704 winning percentage. In 1906 and 1907, the team had a streak in which it won 122 of 154 contests.

3. 1976 Cincinnati Reds

  • The Reds entered the season as the reigning world champs and they looked to improve upon their MLB best 108–54 record in 1975. Despite not improving on their record, the Reds still dominated the league all season, and won their second consecutive National League West title with a record of 102–60, beat record in MLB and finished 10 games ahead of the runner-up Los Angeles Dodgers. The Reds went 49–32 at home and 53–28 on the road in 1976. The 76 Reds are considered by many as one of the greatest baseball teams ever to play. The Reds scored 857 runs in 1976, easily the most in the league that season. Their +224 run differential was also the best in the league in 1976. As of 2017, the Reds are the only team in baseball history to sweep through an entire postseason since the addition of divisions. The Reds went 7–0 in postseason play in 1976.

2. 1998 New York Yankees

  • The team finished with a franchise record regular-season standing of 114–48, 22 games ahead of the second-place Boston Red Sox in the American League East. These Yankees set an American League record for wins in a season, a record that would stand until 2001. In the postseason, they swept the Texas Rangers in the American League Division Series, won the American League pennant by beating the Cleveland Indians four games to two in the American League Championship Series, and swept the San Diego Padres to capture their 24th World Series. Including the playoffs, the 1998 Yankees won a total of 125 games against 50 losses, a MLB record. The 125 wins (regular season and playoffs combined) was the most by a championship team, surpassing the previous record of 116, set by their cross-town rivals, New York Mets in 1986.

1. 1927 New York Yankees

  • They Had Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig on their roster, what more can you say. I feel like it is impossible to outmatch this pure powerhouse team. The team finished with a record of 110–44, winning their fifth pennant and finishing 19 games ahead of the Philadelphia Athletics and were tied for first or better for the whole season.
