I don't see how a team that couldn't even manage to get to the World Series gets to be called the best MLB team of all time.
Aug 11th, 2010 at 14:35 GMT
White Stockings doesn't seem to work as an answer.
Aug 11th, 2010 at 14:37 GMT
I assume you mean the Mariners, who are second here, the cubs are first. And to answer your question, it's because the world series is only seven games, so it doesn't have a huge impact on their wins/losses record, which is what this quiz is on.

Might want to put the years in order if you want this to get published.
Aug 11th, 2010 at 16:37 GMT
Also, the Indians lost the World Series in '54 and the Mariners didn't even make it in '01, so they shouldn't be on the list. You should be more specific: instead of "best" put "best record."

You have to put Chicago White Stockings.
Aug 11th, 2010 at 18:45 GMT
I'd suggest having to answer in order. I just answered every major league team until all the slots were full, except for the 4 defunct franchises.
Aug 11th, 2010 at 18:46 GMT
Oh, and I think "White Sox" should count for "White Stockings" since the franchise is the same (right?)
Aug 11th, 2010 at 19:09 GMT
Actually, those White Stockings became the Chicago Cubs. You should accept Cubs for White Stockings and Braves for Beaneaters since they are the same franchises.

It does seem strange that 3 of the "best of all time" did not win the World Series in years where there is one. But I understood immediately what you were looking for and have no problem with it. You do need to accept White Stockings, though.
Aug 12th, 2010 at 00:40 GMT
It will take "Stockings".
Aug 12th, 2010 at 07:43 GMT
They didn't win the Series either, but a list without Cleveland 95 gets no votes from me.
Aug 12th, 2010 at 20:04 GMT
Why do you have to put "Chicago White Stockings" but you don't have to specify "Philadelphia Athletics"? Just curious.
Aug 12th, 2010 at 20:19 GMT
It didn't see White Stockings as a plural for some reason.
Aug 12th, 2010 at 21:14 GMT
You need to make sure to specifically accept "White Stockings," simply saying "last names acceptable" doesn't work for teams with names like that.
Nov 28th, 2010 at 23:40 GMT
I can't believe you made a quiz that didn't accept "Rays" as an answer.
