The Los Angeles Dodgers are one of the most historic teams in the MLB. Here are the 10 best teams the Dodgers have fielded in franchise history.
The Los Angeles Dodgers have so much history. Despite not winning a World Series in 30 years, the Dodgers have created a legacy in both Brooklyn and Los Angeles that ranks among the most historic teams in the MLB.
There have been countless superstars to play in Dodger blue, countless great managers and one recognizable voice in Vin Scully. Putting on the Dodger blue can only be mirrored by Yankee pinstripes.
The Dodgers are special and have had many, many special seasons as a result. With that being said, here are the 10 best teams in Los Angeles Dodgers history.
10. 1981: 63-47 (Won World Series)
It may seem a bit odd to start this list with a World Series-winning team. However, the 1981 Dodgers did not have an overly impressive roster and won just 63 games due to a strike-reduced season. Notable players for the 1981 Dodgers include:
- Mike Scioscia
- Steve Garvey
- Ron Cey
- Dusty Baker
- Pedro Guerrero
- Fernando Valenzuela
- Jerry Reuss
- Burt Hooton
- Steve Howe
There are some notable names in that list, some of which had the best years of their careers in 1981. If the 1981 Dodgers played an entire season and dominated it would be easier to put them higher on this list. However, this team had the second-lowest winning percentage of any team on this list and finished in second place.
The 1981 Dodgers simply got hot at the right time and scratched their way through the postseason.
