  • 10 Greatest World Series games

    I post, you decide. Odd that Game 6 of the 2002 World Series is not on this list. The Angels were down 5-0 in the 7th and came back to win.

    I think Game 7 of the 1991 series is always way over rated

    sure an extra inning Game 7 but it was a scoreless bland game between two bland teams devoid of true (all time) stars played in a freaking dome won with a sac fly. Yawn.
    1. The more I learn, the more convinced I am that many players are over-rated due to inflated stats from offensive home parks (and eras)

      Finally we agree about something.

      I also look down upon this game because it's one of the reasons Jack Morris is so overrated to the extent that meny people think he'll be in the Hall Of Fame soon.
      My top 10 players:

      1. Babe Ruth
      2. Barry Bonds
      3. Ty Cobb
      4. Ted Williams
      5. Willie Mays
      6. Alex Rodriguez
      7. Hank Aaron
      8. Honus Wagner
      9. Lou Gehrig
      10. Mickey Mantle

        One could say the same about #1 on the list and that's why Mazeroski got elected.
        46 wins to match last year's total

            And why Don Larsen could get 12.1% from #7 (although I think it should be Game 5, not 6).

              It's part of it, and I know why Bill got elected otherwise, and I support the election.

                The most memorable part of Game 7 was the inning of the Smith/Knoblauch play. But I would have to say that Game 6 was more memorable, wasn't it, with Puckett against the wall and his HR?

                  Game 6 1986
                  Game 6 1975 (especially because of the delay between games 5 and 6)
                  Game 6 1956 (not game 5)
                  Game 6 2011

                    I never knew that the 1927 Murders' Row Yankees won World Series sweep of the Pirates on a tied bottom of the 9th, 2 out, bases load wild pitch.

                        It may not have featured all-time stars, but it did feature 3-4 guys who have or will find themselves in Cooperstown - two of them who are not debatable.

                          I very good list from the OP and I basically agree. I will also agree that the 1991 game 6 rates very high.

                            I don't see how any game could top game 7 of the 1960 Series. It had EVERYTHING. Famous powerhouse team, scrappy underdog team, winner take all, action galore, some gritty pitching on both sides, lots of strategy, some questionable decisions, lead changes, many memorable plays BEFORE Maz' homer.

                            I was in 9th grade- our school put the last 3 innings of the game on the PA system- totally riveting.
