The Greatest MLB Team Ever Built (Without Yankees)

OK, we get it already. Not even one word into this article and we can already hear all the people in the Bronx screaming. Calm down for a minute and let us explain why the greatest MLB team ever built shouldn’t include any of the Yankees.

Because the entire team would be the Yankees. Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Yogi Berra, Whitey Ford, Mariano Rivera, Joe DiMaggio, Derek Jeter, and the list goes on and on. So please understand that it isn’t a knock on the Bronx Bombers. It is simply allowing the rest of the MLB to have a chance at making this dream team.

Now on to the fun stuff, the lineup. (We have added their career stats in case you needed more proof.) Do you think this line-up could take down a squad made-up of just the All-Time Greatest Yankees?
