No the Mets were the best team because they won 4 head to head games in the Series. To paraphrase what Danny Murtaugh said to a reporter who asked about the huge difference in runs scored by the Yanks over his Pirates in the 1960 world series "I thought the goal was to see who wins more games...
The best team almost always win a best of 7 series. And the two best win a best of 5 and a best of 7 to play for the title. Any one game is close to a coin toss but over time the better team wins. In baseball pitching and defense seem to beat offense if history is the judge.
I'm not sure why...
True but the century is only 15% gone.
I'm sure your answer is Boston.
Name the only city to win a World Series, Super Bowl, NFL championship, WFL championship, NBA championship, CFL championship and MLS soccer championship.
Love the comments. If your team isn't there yet don't worry. They will be at some point!
Warning for language, guess I should have included that originally.
It was not the play that anyone would call knowing the result. That is all there is to it. Had the pass been complete Carroll would be being called a genius. Had it been incomplete they would have praised his 'guts' for making that call. It was intercepted. It happens all throughout the season.
