Baseball Dynasties: The Greatest Teams of All Time
Rob Neyer, Eddie Epstein
It's a debate nearly as old as the sport itself: Which is the greatest baseball team, ever? Rising to the challenge of this seemingly unwinnable argument, Rob Neyer and Eddie Epstein examine the top fifteen squads of the twentieth century, employing a rigorous statistical analysis and throwing in some good old-fashioned opinion to determine the best team of the modern era. Is it the 1927 Yankees, blessed with both Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig? Sparky Anderson's awesome 1975 Cincinnati Reds? Or the beloved "Boys of Summer," the 1955 Brooklyn Dodgers? Full of anecdotes, intriguing facts, and statistics, "Baseball Dynasties" is certain to provoke, entertain, and edify fans of all ages. Rob Neyer writes a daily baseball column for ESPN.com and also maintains his own Web site, robneyer.com, which contains additional material related to this book. He lives near Seattle. Eddie Epstein, a Baltimore native, worked in major league baseball for more than a decade with the Baltimore Orioles and San Diego Padres. He wrote the STATS 1995 "Minor League Scouting Notebook" and lives in the San Diego area with his wife, Vikki.
