  • Never Lost a Series

    Can you name the players who appeared in at least three WS and was never on the losing end? I'll keep the master list in this post, which remains blank for the time being because there's no way to give a hint without giving answers. No looking, no cheating, you know the drill. In order the qualify, the player has to have won all the Series he's appeared in, not just been on the team. It doesn't count if the player's team lost the Series but he made no appearance.

    Sal Bando- 1972-1974 OAK
    Vida Blue- 1972-1974 OAK
    Bobby Brown- 1947, 1949-1951 NYY
    Bert Campaneris- 1972-1974 OAK
    David Cone- 1996, 1997-2000 NYY
    Chili Davis- 1991 MIN, 1998-1999 NYY
    Rollie Fingers- 1972-1974 OAK. Though his 1982 Brewers lost the Series, he made no appearance
    Joe Girardi- 1996, 1998-1999 NYY
    Lefty Gomez- 1932, 1936-1939 NYY
    Dick Green- 1972-1974 OAK
    Alfredo Griffin- 1988 LAD, 1992-1993 TOR
    Tommy Henrich- 1938, 1941, 1947, 1949 NYY
    Ken Holtzman- 1972-1974 OAK
    Harry Hooper- 1912, 1915-1916, 1918 BOS
    Ed Lopat- 1949-1953 NYY
    Johnny Mize- 1949-1953 NYY
    Jack Morris- 1984 DET, 1991 MIN, 1992 TOR
    Blue Moon Odom- 1972-1974 OAK
    Allie Reynolds- 1947, 1949-1953 NYY

    Joe Rudi- 1972-1974 OAK
    Tris Speaker- 1912, 1915 BOS, 1920 CLE
    Snuffy Stirnweiss- 1943, 1947, 1949 NYY
    Darryl Strawberry- 1986 NYM, 1996, 1999 NYY
    Gene Tenace- 1972-1974 OAK, 1982 STL
    Mike Timlin- 1992-1993 TOR, 2004, 2007 BOS

          Trying to think of older guys who played with the Yankees and possibly retired after their WS runs in the '90. Best I can come up with is Paul O'Neill and Chili Davis.

                Both Rudi and Bando are correct because of the '70s A's run

                            Two who come to mind are

                            Bobby Brown and

                            Johnny Mize.

                            They played together during the Yankees 5 year run 1949-1953. I know that Mize played on each of those teams and I think Brown did.
