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

      If it was, I think it would be in 2007. In 2013 he had his epic WS, but he hit very poorly in the LCS; for that reason I initially dismissed the possibility when I thought of Ortiz. But your post reminds me that he played in two other extended postseasons. I remember in 2007, in one of the series, he and Ramirez together were getting on base something like 80% of the time through the first two or three games. So he would have walked a lot that postseason. Come to think of it, it could have been either Ortiz or Ramirez with twenty walks. But the problem is the RS didn't play that many games, because they swept the Angels I think it was in the LDS, and the Rockies in the WS, though the LCS did go seven. So fourteen games. Twenty walks? Possible.

      Also thought of Pujols in 2006. I remember he had only two hits in the WS, but six walks. The WS only went five games, but the LCS again went seven. So I think fifteen or sixteen games total, with 6 BB in the last five. So possible.
