for me its a draw between '96 and '01. 2001 had the most action with the walkoffs and 9th inning comebacks but the damn yanks lost so i dont like to think about it :~( . 96 had the braves 2-0 in yankees stadium and then leyritz hr in atlanta.

I'm going with 2001...I still have images of brosious in the 9th, and it all came down to the wire. soriano also became a man, getting ready for that 2002 bust-out.

No way you can have that list and not have 1997(Marlins over Indians) listed on it. By far one of the most exciting series'. One of the worst: Yankees-Mets. The only one that was worse than that snoozer was Yankees-Padres. Does anyone even remember the Padres in the World Series?

Also if you are going back to 1990 you gotta give a nod to the series from that year. The Cincinnati Reds stun the heavily favored Oakland A's, to become as Rob Dibble once said "the world champions of the world!"

Gotta agree with Ironman about including the Marlins vs Clevland series but I would have to put the 1991 Minn vs Atl series at the top. Two last to first teams make it to the series and then take it seven games.

Maybe I'm speaking just for myself but I barely even watched the '97 world series except for game 7. Don't get me wrong, it was a great world series but I don't think it interested too many people because of the teams. I don't think either the Indians or Marlins were the best teams in their leagues at the time and it really just wasn't a nice matchupof the teams imo.

I can really only remember from '95-onward, but my favorite of those was the '01 series. D-Back's have been my 2nd favorite team since they came into the league, and Johnson has been my favorite pitcher as long as I can remember. But the 7th game, the picture of Gonzo hitting that texas leaguer just sticks in my head.

I'll never forget, listening to game 7 in '01, the radio announcer was saying on that last atbat how it was odd of torre to bring the infield in because mariano typically gets betters to bloop hit because of his cutter and fastball, on the next pitch gonzolez proceeds to bloop hit on an inside cutter over jeters head (but not far from the back of the infield) who was on the infield grass, and the winnning run coming in. The announcer called it right there, he said it was a stupid move and then it happened, i thought it was incredible, but in a bad way.
