On paper best lineup in history?

Postby riplycolt » Sun Feb 15, 2004 7:26 pm

On paper, is this the best lineup in the history of Major League Baseball? Any comparisons (Muderer's Row)?

I'll take the Yankee's over Communism in the Summer of 2004. Their (the Yankees, not Communism's) only question mark is pitching. Their starting pitching is a little worse than last year and apart from Jeff Nelson they still have questions with middle relief.

fact is paper means nothing. Numbers mean very little. History usually means less.

I have always believed that a good team has the right players in the right positions. Not always the best players everywhere. When Seattle won 116 (not that it meant much in october) , it wasn't because they had a whole bunch of all-stars, it was with a well put together baseball <B>TEAM.</B>

I am 30 yrs old and have been watching baseball as long as I can remember and this is by far the best lineup I have ever seen.

There will come a day when Barry Bonds leaves baseball, and everything about the game will be the better for it.

Yep, but the games not played on paper.

That said it sure looks like a Yankee pitcher is only going to have to get through the 5th to get a W in the W/L column.

I'm with Kent on this.

The Yankee's got two of the best players in the game and the nucleus of the team that got to the World Series is largely untouched apart from the departure of Pettitte (and a VERY old Clemens). Let's face it, Soriano was pretty dead out there in the playoffs last year. Nothing is a lock in baseball, but this is as close as it will likely get. They'd probably win without a guy even playing 2B!

It's not the 27 NYY with Ruth and Gehrig. The 99 Indians were the only team to crack 1,000 runs in 50 years. They were the best lineup i have seen. NYY have a shot at them.
