With more than 100 years the Major League Baseball has since it was founded, many dream teams have gone through the league leaving their mark with no doubt.
For example, the 1939 New York Yankees who won the American League by 17 games that year with the amazing record of receiving only 1, 31 runs per game, or the 1970 Baltimore Orioles who achieved the astonishing mark of 108-54 games on the regular season and crushing Minnesota Twins and Cincinnati Reds after the postseason in five games, with no doubt these are teams to remember.
However, if there is one team that can be considered the best MLB team of all time with no doubt it is the 1984 Detroit Tigers, due to the achievements this generation can perform.
