2017 Astros Compared to 1927 Yankees

Are the Houston Astros as good as the 1927 New York Yankees? One website seems to think so.

The website FiveThirtyEight released an article comparing the Houston Astros and the Los Angeles Dodgers ballclubs to the 1927 New York Yankees. The article contends that the two clubs are "red-hot" and could very well be compared to the caliber of the "greatest ballclub ever."

According to a spreadsheet posted to the article, both teams (Astros - .674, Dodgers- .678) are in the neighborhood of cracking the win percentage of the 1927 New York Yankees (.719). The team is not near topping the best winning percentage in MLB history which was established by the 1998 New York Yankees (.744).
