Who’s the Best Baseball Team Right Now?

The answer to who’s the best baseball team right now is a little complicated. There are a lot of great teams out there and it really depends on who you ask. However, we can narrow it down to a few contenders.


The Seattle Mariners

The Seattle Mariners have been on fire lately. They have the best record in baseball and are led by one of the best players in the game, Robinson Cano. The Mariners have a great mix of young talent and experienced veterans. They are a team that is fun to watch and should be a force to be reckoned with in the postseason.

Their recent record

The Seattle Mariners are an American professional baseball team based in Seattle, Washington. The Mariners compete in Major League Baseball (MLB) as a member club of the American League (AL) West division. The team joined the AL as an expansion team in 1977. Since July 1999, the Mariners’ home ballpark has been T-Mobile Park, located in the SoDo neighborhood of Seattle.

The “Mariners” name originates from the prominence of marine culture in the city of Seattle. They are nicknamed the M’s, a title featured in their primary logo from 1987 to 1992. Their mascot is the Moose.

As of 2019, Safeco Field has a seating capacity of 47,943 for baseball. It also houses the offices and indoor training facilities for the Mariners.

As of 2019, the Seahawks have played in ten playoff seasons, qualifying for seven NFC Championships and two Super Bowl appearances: winning Super Bowl XLVIII over the Denver Broncos 43–8, and losing Super Bowl XLIX 28–24 to the New England Patriots despite having a late lead in both games. They have compiled an all-time regular season record of 325 wins, 178 losses, and 9 ties as of 2019. This ranks them tied for 13th among NFL franchises by winloss record’s winning percentage winning percentage (.646).

Their recent standings

As of June 23, 2018, the Seattle Mariners have a record of 45 wins and 30 losses. This puts them 2nd in the American League West, 2.5 games back of the first place Houston Astros. The Mariners are also 5th in the American League overall, 3 games back of the 4th place Boston Red Sox.

The Houston Astros

The Houston Astros are currently the best baseball team in the world. They have the best record in the majors, and their offense is explosive. They also have a great pitching staff, led by Justin Verlander. The Astros are a complete team and they are fun to watch.

Their recent record

The Houston Astros are an American professional baseball team based in Houston, Texas. The Astros compete in Major League Baseball (MLB) as a member club of the American League (AL) West division, having moved to the division in 2013 after spending their first 51 seasons in the National League (NL). The Astros have played their home games at Minute Maid Park since 2000.

The Astros were established as the Houston Colt .45s and entered the NL in 1962 as an expansion team, along with the New York Mets. The current name—reflecting Houston’s role as the host of the Johnson Space Center—was adopted three years later, when they moved to the Astrodome, the first domed sports stadium. The Astros played in front of 37,000 fans per game in their inaugural season at The Astrodome; by 1977 that number jumped to 44,294 per game on average—still a record for a domed stadium that stood until 1979, when baseball attendance league-wide surpassed 50 million for the first time.

The Astros posted an all-time record of 1,171–1,176 (.499) through their first 28 seasons from 1962 to 1989. Hired as general manager before the beginning of the 1989 season, Billy Doran led Houston to a 312– 374 record over his four-year tenure and guided them to their first winning season and playoff appearance—and only one during his tenure—in 1986 with an 85–77 record. In 1990 Doran was replaced by Tal Smith; Smith’s only season was also a winning one—en route to an 84- 78 finish—making him only the second general manager during that 28-year period with a winning record at year’s end (the other being Harry Craft from 1967 to 1969). From 1991 through 1996, under managers Art Howe and Terry Collins (respectively), Houston posted nine consecutive losing seasons with players such as Craig Biggio, Jeff Bagwell and new catcher Brad Ausmus solidifying themselves among franchise cornerstone pieces during those lean years.

In 1993 Jeff Luhnow was hired by new owner Drayton McLane Jr. as Assistant General Manager for Player Personnel; he would be promoted to farm system director in 2000 and later become Vice President / Scouting Directorate before becoming GM following Ed Wade’s dismissal following the 2011 season. A 31-year run of futility followed from 1997 through 2005 under various managers (including Larry Dierker), but that ended with manager Cecil Cooperjs hiringluggage after Wade was fired following an organizational meeting following 2005’s disappointing 77- 85 campaign; Cooper led them back to respectability over his five-year term from 2006–2010 highlighted by finishes of .500 or better for three consecutive seasons from 2008–2010 behind stars such as Lance Berkman& Roy Oswalt resulting in their first playoff berth since 2001 getting swept by eventual world champion Philadelphia Phillies en route to an 86-75 finish followed up by 84 win campaigns mired by lateseason collapses in 2009 They unseated Cincinnati after 15 years atop NL Central standings en route jsksajdklasdj a 92 win campaign culminating with another Wild Card Game appearance where they were once again swept this time window up shop ksjdaksl jsdlkasj dkjasld jkjdsalk jsdalkjas dkjalksdj alskdjalksd jasdlkja sdkljasldkj askldjlkas djalksdjalks djalksjd alskdjalks djalksjdkalskdjasdlkajsdkljasdlkjalsdkja lksdjlkasdjalsdk flowers falling like rain dslkjadlskjadslkjadslkjadslkjadslaksdjadiopwqutryiopfghjklm

Their recent standings

In 2019, the Houston Astros won 107 regular-season games, en route to their second World Series championship in three years. The Astros topped the 100-win mark for the third straight year, becoming just the fourth team in major league history to do so. They also became the first team ever to win at least 100 games in three consecutive seasons with a different manager each year.

The New York Yankees

The New York Yankees are one of the most successful baseball teams of all time. They have 27 World Series championships, which is the most of any team in Major League Baseball. They also have 40 American League pennants, which is also the most of any team in MLB. The Yankees have been dominant for most of their history, and they are currently one of the best teams in baseball.

Their recent record

The New York Yankees are an American professional baseball team based in the Bronx, New York City. They compete in Major League Baseball (MLB) as a member club of the American League (AL) East division. They are one of two major league clubs based in New York City, the other being the National League’s (NL) New York Mets. The Yankees began play in the 1901 season as the Baltimore Orioles (no relation to the modern Baltimore Orioles) before moving to New York City in 1903 and adopting their current name.

The team is owned by Yankee Global Enterprises, an LLC controlled by the family of the late George Steinbrenner, who purchased the team in 1973. Brian Cashman is the team’s general manager, and Aaron Boone is the team’s field manager. The team’s home games were played at Yankee Stadium from 1923 to 1973 and from 1976 to 2008. In 1974 and 1975, their home games were played at Shea Stadium, located in Flushing Meadows–Corona Park, Queens. The Yankees moved back into a newly renovated Yankee Stadium beginning with the 2009 season. From 1971 to 1997, this rivalry intensified as both teams won a then-AL record 5 consecutive World Series Championships (1977–1981 for NYY; 1949–1953 for BOS). Following Boston’s win in 2004 and subsequent collapse that led to their defeat by underdog Tampa Bay Rays
in 2008 ALDS, many people began calling them “the best team money can buy”, due to their large payroll compared to most teams’.

Their recent standings

The New York Yankees are currently in first place in the American League East with a record of 43-18. They are 7.5 games ahead of the second-place Tampa Bay Rays and 8.5 games ahead of the third-place Boston Red Sox. The Yankees have won nine consecutive games and are currently riding a 13-game winning streak.
