Dream Season: The Yankees and more have the best records in the Majors

Hey, New York Baseball Fans: Is your move a little more springy these days? Does the smell of freshly sown grass smell a little sweeter? Does the ash crack on a cow skin sound like beautiful music?

უნდა should. The Yankees were the first team in the Majors to win 50 – they only did that in 67 games – and Met had the second-best record in baseball until Monday, 45-24.

Statistically, this may be the best combined season in the history of New York baseball.

Yes, there are still a few months to play, players to recover or get injured and the win-loss series to continue. But the Yankees (.746) and above (.652) have an average profit percentage of .699. This reduced their average profit percentage to any of the previous 60 seasons in which they co-existed.

Surprisingly, the previous best full season among them was not 2000 when the Yankees defeated the Metz in the Metro series. Fate coincided with these teams in the post-season, but the Met entered this playoffs as a wild card.

Their best combined season came two years earlier when the 1998 Yankees were up 114-48 .704 percent in profit – and continued to win World Series. Combine this with the Metz National League East second-place finish record 88-74 (.543) and you get the average percentage of .624. Wonderful figure, but quite a drop behind this year.699.

The Yankees and Mets also achieved at least 0.600 percent of the winnings including in 1999 (.600; the Yankees won the World Series), in 1986 (.612; the Mets won the World Series) and in 1985 (.604).

This is probably a good place to prove that many New York fans do not see combined greatness as a good thing. The success of their favorite team is not enough for these fans; Their crossstone opponent must also be defeated. So the number of fans who beat these teams in 1998 may be small.

Of course, the history of New York City baseball and its fierce rivalry did not begin when the Mets came to town in 1962. But even with the days when the Yankees split the city with the New York Jians and the Brooklyn Dodgers, the current season remains in the lead.

The best season of the three-team era in New York was 1942 (.634). The Yankees finished the World Series and the Dodgers and Giants second and third in the National League. But they all fell to the Cardinal St. Louis Cardinal, who defeated the Yankees in five World Series matches.

More than .600 other seasons of that era all came in the 1950s: 1951 (.626, Yankees on Giants in World Series), 1952 (.614, Yankees on Dodgers), and 1954 (.632, The Giants Won the Series).

Going back to the days before the Yankees’s existence, the city’s best 19th century season came in 1889, when the American Association of Brooklyn Fiancees (later Dodgers) and the National League Giants combined for 0.669 percent profit. The Giants defeated the Dodgers in the Inter-League Championship, which was the forerunner of the modern world series.

Unfortunately, the recordings are not complete. Many Negro league statistics are now recognized as equivalent to other major leagues, but the records are not comprehensive enough for accurate inclusion. One remarkable season came in 1947, when the New York Cubans, along with the Minos Minos and Luis Tiant Senior, won the Negro World Series. But the average profit percentage for that season was cut by the New York Black Yankees, who were a staggering 12-43.

Maintaining a high winning percentage with several teams is difficult. True, New York’s best baseball season, which preceded the founding of the Giants in 1883 as the New York Gothams, technically came four dark years after the Giants and Dodgers headed west, leaving the Yankees behind. The only game in town. That was 1961, the Metals were one year short of a stumbling block, and the Yankees posted a profit margin of 0.673 when Roger Maris and Mickey Mantle fought to break Baby Ruth’s home record. With the victory of the World Series, cherries were placed on their heads.

Whether the Yankees and Mets can succeed in the regular season of 1889, 1942, 1961 or 1998 this season will not be known for months. But whatever you count, it was a golden season for New York baseball. Maybe he’ll mess with jets and giants.
