And the Twins should be in there as well. Still just 4 teams with 50 or fewer, rare company. Thanks for pointing out the other two teams everyone.

I think the team was stronger than their record implies. This is just from memory though.

(Not to mention that on top of that, one of those new teams played in the thin air of Denver.)
It was a perfect storm.

But, as Cyril pointed out @18, the '87 Twins should be a third team in this group - they were indeed outscored by their opponents.

I've never thought of them as fluky a champion as they might seem, because that had been very strong team for several years, and I think they had a bunch of injuries in '06 which hurt their record. I think the team was stronger than their record implies. This is just from memory though.

I always knew the '87 Twins were a "weak" champion and perhaps only won due to a big home-field advantage. I did not remember that they were actually outscored over the course of the season. Cyril is right. Scored 786, allowed 806.

How many WS champs have been outscored during the postseason? I know the '60 Pirates were. Is that it? I guess it would be more unlikely with multiple series. (Those Twins did outscore their postseason opponents 72-49.)
