I'm not asking this question in terms of a subjective view, but I'm really trying to find out if any other team besides the 1932, 1936 and 1937 Yankees have scored more runs than the 978 runs that the White Sox scored in 2000. Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

Didn't last year's Red Sox set the team record for SLG%?

I'm just looking for total runs scored, but I think you're correct.

The 98 or 99 Indians scored over 1,000 I think. That's the best lineup I've ever seen. Lofton, Vizquel, Alomar, Justice, Thome, Ramirez, Fryman, and a young, good Sandy Alomar. Great speed, great power, great table setters, great on base percentages..they had everything. Our 2000 club was just a freak thing where we just rode a hot streak for 4 or 5 months. Every time we had a man on first, someone would hit a double to knock him home. Every time we needed a blooper, we'd score two runs off it. Every night...same thing. Not taking anything away from them, but the talent isn't up there with the Indians or the old Yankee teams.

1 - NYY-31 -- 1067

2 - NYY - 36 -- 1065

3 - NYY - 30 -- 1062

4 - BOS - 50 -- 1027

5 - CLE - 99 -- 1009

6 - STL - 30 -- 1004

7 - NYY - 32 -- 1002

8 - CUBS - 30 -- 998:booty:

9 - SEA - 96 -- 993

10 - CUBS - 29 -- 982:booty:

11 - PHI (AL) - 32 -- 981

12 - NYY - 37 -- 979

13 - CWS - 00 -- 978:cheers:

14 - NYY - 27 -- 975

15 - COL - 00 -- 968



Notice that SIX of those 15 teams had the same first baseman/cleanup hitter... one Mr. Gehrig.

Well, since the Sox have been kind of iffy offensively for the last few years, I would have to say no. The best consistent offensive threat I've ever seen was that Indian offense in the late-90s. Damn they could hit. Though, if Jockety plays his cards right and players continue to play at their level, the Cardinals have an imposing threat, as well.

That's exactly what I was looking for. Thank you very much.
