It's only fitting that a franchise that produced a quarter of baseball's World Champions in a century would hold the honor for what is considered to be one of the greatest single teams of all time.
The 1927 Yankees would win 110 games and lose 44. It would be an American League record that would stand for 27 seasons and it earned the team the nickname "Murderer's Row." The question to ask, however, is how good was this team?
