2011 Phillies one "the great 28"

4

Chris Jaffe selects the 28 best teams of all-time to "run 1,000 simulated seasons using Diamond Mind Baseball to see how the squads shake out." He includes the 2011 Phillies: "Not only are they the most recent team, but they are also the 28th team picked. The last slot came down to the 1904 Giants, 2009 Yankees, and 2011 Phillies. I decided I’d rather have a third recent team than a seventh team from 1896-1912. I picked the Phillies over the Yankees because, *according to WAR, this team has the best pitching staff of all time*. Besides, I’d rather have a Phillies team than another Yankees squad." Sigh?
