WaPo: The 2018 Red Sox bring to mind the ’17 Dodgers, but can they write a different ending?

The two best regular-season teams of the past half-century remain the 2001 Mariners, who went 116-46, and the 1998 Yankees, who went 114-48. But only one of them is in the discussion as the best team in modern history. 

...

Many factors could go into the discussion of whether a team can be called the best ever — including win-loss record, run-differential and even the number of future Hall of Famers on a roster — but unless the Red Sox win their final game, and lock down another World Series title, they will be just another would-be contender that wasn’t quite great enough.
