On paper best lineup in history?

Best every day

In recent history, I would go with the early-mid 70's Reds.

They had Bench catching, Perez, Morgan, Concepion, and Rose in the IF and Griffey Sr, Geremino, and Foster in the OF (excuse some of my spelling). Pitching could have been better. Free agency ended their run.

Best line-up

I forgot to ask. What will the Yankees payroll be after this deal is done? I live in Green Bay, and without revenue sharing the Packers would be as bad as the Brewers. The next statute or street here should be named for Pete Rozelle who somehow sold Halas and the Mara family on revenue sharing.

The Reds had a stacked lineup in the 70's...1-8 were all hitting above .300

Who does communism have on the mound? Oh, wait, the Cuban team is pretty good. Never mind... :-D

Anyway, interesting question. Extremely good? Obviously. Best in recent memory (on paper at least)? Pretty close, at any rate. Best ever? Probably not. Some of those teams we never had a chance to see play were pretty unbelievable...

going into this years nba season people said that the lakers were the greatest team ever assembled. they had 4 hall of famers. look at where they are now. yes, they aren't doing bad, but they are no where near as good as the preseason hype was. injuries will decimate a team and you never know what'll happen. i'm going out on a limb and i'm going to say that they won't win the world series this year. kevin brown is 97 years old and never makes it through a year without getting injured. matsui is just too damn ugly to look at. i dont want to have to see him on tv for all those playoff series. yuck!

This is no doubt the best line-up I’ve seen going into a season.

Let’s see if they measure up to the ’98 Yankees. That was a wrecking ball squad that destroyed everything in its path.

Red Sox Nation will be little more than target practice this season.

of course injuries change everything. thats why we said "on paper". kevin brown is 39 not 97 and he made it through the season last year and pitched great. i personally dont cae what matsui looks like as long as he hits. if you dont want to look at him then dont watch. this is the most dominating lineup i've ever seen heading into a season and the pitching is better than almost everybody too. yankees are once again the team to beat.

This year's Yankees lineup is certainly one of the most potent lineups I've ever seen, if not the most potent. I'd say they do have a shot at cracking 1000 runs this year. Should be very interesting to watch and see.

who's starting pitching staff is better than the yankees this year? i'd say that houston definately has them beat (4 number 1 or 2 pitchers) as does oakland (the big 3). i'd then give the edge to the bo sox because pedro, schilling, lowe sounds better to me than mussina, vazquez, brown. plus the cubbies with prior, wood, zambrano, clement isn't half bad either. then i'd throw in the yankees after that. thoughts?
