Jim Coates and Hal Smith had just as much to do with this.

]]>most WS RBIs doesn't mean team success:

1. Bobby Richardson, 1960, 12 LOSER

2. Mickey Mantle, 1960, 11 LOSER

3. Mike Napoli, 2011, 10 LOSER

4. Ted Kluszewski, 1959, 10 LOSER

5. Yogi Berra, 1956, 10 WINNER

6. Sandy Alomar, 1997, 10 LOSER

Bobby Richardson played for a loser. If you re-read your list you have Richardson as a winner and Mantle as a loser in the same series.

I see that his postseason OPS is 1.258 in 71 PAs with an utterly insane 1.9 WPA.

]]>Prior to this series, there had been only 51 WS games ever where a 40+ year-old pitcher had appeared. This series had 6 such games, the most ever.

This year was also only the 6th series with two 40+ pitchers and the first where both such pitchers appeared more than once. Of those 6 series, four have occurred since 2003. Apparently, pitchers do last longer when you look after them.

]]>Only one of the top 6 WS RBI performances was in a winning cause. Guess it pays to have contributions spread throughout your lineup.
