2001 was my favorite in recent memory. Gotta love Gonzo, Clutch.



honorable mentions ....
MLB 1988 wrote:When Los Angeles came up in the ninth inning they trailed by just one run, 4-3. But if they were to come back, they'd have to do it against baseball's top closer, Dennis Eckersley. Eckersley retired the first two Dodger batters in good order, but then he walked pinch-hitter Mike Davis. With the pitcher due up next, L.A. manager Tom Lasorda called on ... Kirk Gibson, who could barely walk, let alone run. Yet with a full count, Gibson hit an Eckersley slider over the right-field wall, winning the game and leaving his indelible mark on Series history.

They never recovered .....

MLB 1977 wrote:Back in New York for Game 6, the Dodgers owned a 3-2 lead after three innings, but then Jackson got to work. First came a two-run homer off Hooton in the fourth. Just an inning later, Jackson again blasted a two-run shot, this one off Elias Sosa. And he finished off his power display with a solo shot off Charlie Hough in the eighth, propelling the Bronx Bombers to an 8-4, Series-clinching victory. Thus was born "Mr. October."


After game 6, I was hooked... I have loved baseball ever since. I even started playing "Fantasy Baseball" soon after. Then it was a card game called ABBA. I think it is still around... and those stupid dice.... :-B

Reggie ... Reggie .... Reggie ... Reggie ... Reggie...

I think I even had a NYY "Plastic Batting Helmet"
And I hate the Yankees.

I don't hate the Yankees. :-] I don't like them either, but that's not the point. I'm indifferent. B-)
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

As a team I root against the Yankees. I don't have any problem with any of their players. The thing is rooting for the Yankees is like rooting for Duke basketball. What joy is there in rooting for the team that has always wins and has the best players. Everyone likes an underdog = everyone hates the Yankees.
