"@11 JoeC: The '86 game was wonderful - should be no. 1 on the list!..."
Stu - Not if you're a Red Sox fan!

"... @35 Lawrence Azrin: There are plenty of good reasons that the '75 game is so high on the list, but Peter Gammons using it in a book isn't one - it's just his opinion."

Stu, I wouldn't put Gammons' book high on the list, but it was one of the most prominent of a number of media pieces that perpetuated the feeling that G6 of the 1975 WS was amongst the greatest games ever.

Game six yesterday had enough excitement for the entire WS. With all the errors and other questionable plays, but also great defensive plays like Napoli's pick-off at third, it reminded me of Dickens famous intro:

"It was the best of times, it was the worst of times..."

we can argue 755, but no way does 762 surpass 714 in fame.

infamy maybe.

Which number means more to you?

61 or 73?

I would never say 714 is larger than 762. I would just bet that way more people know 714 off the top of their heads. But you're right about 755: 5-5-7 would have been more fortuitous.

Cruz didn't give up the double to Pujols or walk Berkman and didn't throw a 1-2 cupcake to Freese. So he lost the series singlehandedly for the Rangers. When was the last time a World Series game had 3 blown saves by one team? But yeah, the Rangers will be a lot better off without Nelson Cruz.

However that means the chance of a crucial gaffe has been increased, just by that. We will see.
