The 95 Atlanta Braves weren't even the best team in 1995, it was the Cleveland Indians. The Braves pitching was elite, but their top position player had a 3.6 WAR.
If you want to see a stacked team, check out the 1998 Yankees and 2001 Seattle Mariners, and going back even further the 1927 Yankees.
Edit: The crazy thing about the 2001 Mariners is that they lost: A-Rod, Randy Johnson and Ken Griffey Jr. in 1999 and 2000. Had they somehow retained those three players they would have dressed the most talented lineup in baseball history, and it wouldn't even be close.
