In major league baseball, only 8 of the 30 teams make the playoffs every year. As recently as the early 90's it was 4 teams out of 26, and in the 60's it was 2 teams out of 20. Obviously over the years a lot of very good teams have not even made it to the playoffs.
What team had the best overall record and still did not make the playoffs? I know teams play more games than they did 50 years ago so let's go with winning percentage instead of wins.
