Source: Matt Snyder, CBS Sports
We’ve been running through some historic World Series moments now that we’re inside two weeks until the 2013 Fall Classic, so I figured let’s have a little more fun. Let’s rank the best World Series of all-time!
1. 2001: Diamondbacks over Yankees in seven: the emotional seven-game thriller in the shadows of 9/11.
2. 2011: Cardinals over Rangers in seven: the St. Louis Cardinals completing one of the most historic and unpredictable World Series runs in baseball history.
3. 1991: Twins over Braves in seven: “the Cinderella Series” with heroics from Kirby Puckett and Jack Morris.
4. 1997: Marlins over Indians in seven: the Game-7 walk-off hit in extra innings by Edgar Renteria.
5. 2002: Angels over Giants in seven: Anaheim, with a little help from the rally monkey of course, defeat Barry Bonds and the Giants to capture Anaheim’s first world championship.Ranking Top Five World Series Of The Last Quarter Century by Charles Mager
