Chicago was most definitely not even close to the most talented team, but what they did, they did well and team chemistry played a role. Everyone knew why they were there, and each player knew the others' weaknesses. Iguchi doesn't come up to the plate trying to smack HRs when he's got Konerko behind him, and so on. Team chemistry goes a long way, IMO.

Chicago played well as a team, but a 2.55 post season era generally gets you a ring. Doesn't Chicago have bad boys like Everett, Jenks, AJ (hated everywhere he's played in past), to name a few. Dominent pitching goes a long way.
Manny isn't from what i have seen, a so called chemistry guy. Boston won in 04. 86 Mets, 97 Marlins, 77/78 NYY, to name a few who weren't the best of clubhouses. So both wins imo, so both matter some. I will take talent over chemistry any day though. Seattle has had as good as chemistry teams as you can get. Nice guys, lots of winners of Roberto Clemente awards, yet have won zippo. Chicago bought into Ozzie, and they played well.
