Since the playoffs are rapidly coming, what is the best postseason game you've seen? Doesn't matter what year and to be technical one game playoffs don't count.
3. Braves-Twins 1991 World Series: Game #6
However, a close second is Game 6 of the 1986 Series which is the infamous Buckner game. (I can still hear Scully's gravely voice "The ball goes through Buckner's legs....AND THE METS WIN IT!!!!" Great stuff.:up
1986 ALCS g5
Game 6 2002 World Series with the Angels' incredible comeback from what was seemingly a ring for Roid Boy & Co. That was as awesome as it gets!!!!
unfortunately that was one of the lowest rated WS ever. Nobody outside of California cared about the Angels and the Giants. Moments like the Buckner error were more memorable because people were actually watching.
One of the best, and certainly most underrated series I've ever seen was Orioles-Pirates '79 WS. Orioles-Pirates was the first World Series that I watched EVERY game, and it was a GREAT and entertaining series!
Talk about falling on hard times.
If I told a younger baseball fan that the Orioles and Pirates once played in a World Series, I'd get laughed at.
Orioles, Pirates- my GAWD, how the mighty have fallen.
The Orioles and Pirates played each other twice in the 70's: 1971 and 1979.
CBS, as bad as they were at televising baseball, still got superior Fall Classic ratings- and two of those had a team from Canada!
