Team of the Decade 2010s

Recommended Posts

I forgot to do this after the baseball season....so I will catch up on it here, now.

This is the calculation of the Team of the Decade of the 2010s in Major League Baseball.

Note on Methodology:  As with the NFL....here I  assess points to each team that makes the playoffs in any given year.  The Team that wins the World Series receives 10 points.   The WS loser gets 6 points.  The losers of the League Championship series get 3 pts.  All other playoff participant receive one point.  I then accumulate the point received by each team for all years of the decade.  In this case from 2010 to 2017.  We are 8/10th through this decade.  So, here are the accumulated points for each team so for in the 2010s:

SF  Giants   31 points

St. Louis Cardinals  23 pts.

Chicago Cubs 16 pts.

Kansas City Royals 16 pts. 

LA Dodgers 14 pts.

Texas Rangers 14 pts

Detroit Tigers  13 pts.

Boston Red Sox 12 pts.

Houston Astros 11 pts.

NY Yankees  11 pts.

Cleveland Indians  8 pts.

NY Mets  7 pts

Toronto Blue Jays  6 pts. 

Baltimore Orioles 5 pts. 

Phillies  4 pts.

Nationals  4 pts.

Tampa Bay Rays  3 pts.

Brewers  3 pts.

Oakland A.  3 pts

Pitt. Pirates  3 pts.

Cincinnati Reds  2 pts

Atlanta Braves  2 pts

Minnesota Twins  2 pts.

Diamondbacks  2 pt.s.

LA Angels   1 pt.

Colo. Rockies  1 pt.

Mariners  -0-

White Sox  -0-

Marlins -0-

Padres -0-

NY YANK$ the best team money can buy decade after decade. 1946-1964 just one example. 

........except the somewhat brief Seinfeld, Donnie Baseball, bad Steinbrenner era.
