This means the Reds and Sox WS game with Fisk HR will be #2 or #1. The game should not be in the top 5 IMO. #3 should be #1, and #10 should be #2

well there are only 2 games left and Twins/Braves Game 7 is confirmed as #2 so I guess Red Sox/Reds is #1
Because it wasn't.Why not?
Because it wasn't.
It was not a deciding game. The outcome of that game did not affect the winner of the series. It was not won on a dramatic comeback. It had one of the worst play by play calls of any walk off HR (showing that either the announcer did not think it was that dramatic or it was simply a horrible call). The starters did not dominate. No one player had a game of a lifetime. There was not one dramatic play or mistake that lives in history as a huge game changer or series changer. There were no major records broken or set.
There are several games throughout history that have all or several of the variables mentioned which automatically make them better games (i.e. Games 6 of the 1986 WS, involving one of the same teams BTW, and even game 1 of the 1988 WS).
If that same game and series with exactly the same outcomes, plays, and players was played between the Padres and Mariners, I can bet you it will not even make the top 10
And that game should be #1, IMO.One of the cool things about this series is hearing vin scully breaking it down, watched sox/mets again yesterday, so many times they were at two strikes/two outs
I have watched the game several times. I have the MLB.TV account and can watch classic games. It was a good game and the Reds had what I consider one of the best offenses of all time that year, but the game itself is not the top game of all time, IMO. The lead only changed twice.You need to watch the game again then. Bernie Carbo pinch hits to tie the game. Fisk hitting one in extras. It was a fight with hitting back and forth.
