Preliminary Round
1994 New York Yankees over 1995 Seattle Mariners
Four games to none
MVP:  Paul O’Neil1 (.412, 3 HR, 8 RBI)
 
History never knew what the 1994 Yankees could have accomplished as it was a lost season but now their talents were on full display as they swept the Lou Piniella 95 Mariners with ease in four games. The best game of the series was game one where the Yankees won a 14 inning marathon thanks to a Wade Boggs double late. The New York offense as a whole could not be contained with the Yanks batting .331 as a team and scoring 10 runs or more in three of their four wins.
 
Chris Bosio especially struggled for the Mariners allowing 9 runs in three innings worked while Tim Belcher and Solomon Torres struggled just as much on their part. Even Randy Johnson took a loss in game two in what was the closest game of the series. Paul Oneill plays big when his team needs him most and his two home run, five RBI performance in the clinching game put a swift end to this series. Maybe this 94 Yankee team is better then anyone remembers.

Preliminary Round


1976 Kansas City Royals over 1947 Detroit Tigers
Four games to none
MVP: Hal McRae (.471, 1 HR, 3 RBI, 4 SB)
 
Every game was close but had the same result as the 1976 Royals won all four games by one run to complete a sweep and move on. This was a hitters series as both teams combined for almost 100 hits in the four games. The hottest of them all was George Brett and Eddie Mayo as the two seemed to go back and forth every chance they could get. Mayo batted .556 going 10 for 18 while good old George simply batted .667 and had 10 hits in 15 at bats. The Royals showed off their speed and defense as well at the crucial times stealing 10 bases to the Tigers zero.
 
The final game of the series told the entire story as the Tigers took a one run lead into the 9th inning where with two out Amos Otis singled in the tying and go ahead runs for the series clinch. The Royals bullpen was much better in the series with Mark Littell a key man appearing in all four games and allowing only one run.

Preliminary Round



1993 San Francisco Giants over 1922 St. Louis Browns
Four games to one
MVP: Barry Bonds (.381, 2 HR, 6 RBI, 2 SB)
 
Another 100 win team that gets another chance the 1993 Giants overwhelmed the 1922 Browns and few would argue showed they were the better team. In the opener Will Clark hit a go ahead three run homer late in what was a back and forth game, throughout this series the Giants were able to put together the big innings when they needed to. In game four Barry Bonds took over and homered in the first two innings of the game while driving in five runs. In game five that wrapped things up Giant starter Bud Black held the Browns to only three hits to end the series.
 
Urban Shocker the St. Louis ace ended with an ERA over 10 and couldn’t figure out the potent Giant lineup. Royce Clayton was another star of the series for the Giants with 9 hits and a .429 average, as well as some slick defense at short. Wally Gerber batted .500 for the series and was the Browns lone hitter over the .300 mark.

Just noticed this thread....AWESOME!!! Keep the games coming nkokosioulis!!  Just throwing it out there before we get any deeper into this tournament, who is the "favorite", my first thought without doing any research is the '27 Yanks.

6/22/2011 4:44 PM
yes the games will keep on coming and thanks for the support!

Favorites are everywhere and of course the 27 Yankees are part of that discussion...

Other favorites in my opinion are:
1939 Yankees
1906 Cubs (lost only 34 games)
1998 Yankees
1976 Reds

From the teams that have played so far, thos 1993 Giants looked pretty impressive.

1966 Pittsburgh Pirates over 1985 New York Mets
Preliminary Round
Four games to two
MVP: Woodie Fryman (2-0, 1.93 ERA, 10 K)
 
Four of the six games of this series were decided by one run but the Pirates ended up winning three games in a row including the clincher at Shea to topple the Mets. The Mets took game one in extras but Willie Stargell hit a late three run home run to beat the Mets in game two. The series really turned in game five when the Mets built a 8-0 lead at Forbes field with Sid Fernandez looking in control. The Pirates rallied and in the bottom of the ninth a Gene Alley triple with a man on plated the winning run, the Pirate comeback was one for the ages and broke the Met’s back. In game six at Shea more of the same as Bill Mazeroski hit a go ahead three run home run that would stand up.
 
Doc Gooden was less then dominant in his two starts and the Mets lost game four with him on the mound. The Mets bullpen also let them down with Jesse Orosco and Doug Sisk less then reliable. The Pirates are a clutch team that seemed to beat the Mets at their own game even when it seemed that New York had control of the series.

You should right the record of each team for their regular season with the game summaries. Might be nice. Great work though, can't wait to see how my Blue Jays do.
Thanks for the support.

If you look at the team stats the regular season record of the teams is in parenthesis near the team name.

*Preliminary Round*



1970 Minnesota Twins over 1942 Boston Red Sox
Four games to two
MVP: Jim Perry (2-0, 2.22 ERA, 9 K)
 
Ted Williams continues to downplay his abilities to win the big game or big series as his team goes down to the 1970 Twins in a good series of six games; Williams batted .286 for the series and drove in four runs. The Twins won all three games they played at the Met and two of the wins were headed by Jim Perry who pitched a complete game shutout in the deciding game six.
 
The Twins had their motor going at the top of their lineup as Cesar Tovar and Rich Reese combined to bat .446 and drive in 13 runs, the Twins batted .296 as a team. Boston only scored 21 runs in the six games and had a general hard time finding a dependable bat as Jim tabor was the only man over the .300 mark. The Red Sox did have a dramatic win in game three in 10 innings off a Bobby Doerr triple. In the end however it was the Twins who were the better team both at the plate and on the mound.

*Preliminary Round*


1948 New York Yankees over 1929 Pittsburgh Pirates
Four games to two
MVP: Joe DiMaggio (.407, 3 HR, 9 RBI)
 
Offense was on full display in this series and by the numbers the Pittsburgh Pirates actually outhit the Yankees, but still lost the series in six games. The Pirates batted an impressive .360 as a team and scored 36 runs in their last three games lead by Lloyd Waner who batted .444. Still the Yankee bats were well over .300 as well and even more so seemed to get the big hits with runners in scoring position. Joe DiMaggio who always seems to come up big batted a cool .407, while Yogi Berra batted .464 with 13 hits.
 
The Yankees took the first three games in a breeze and then watched the Pirates right the ship and take back two before heading home. Forbes field wasn’t home sweet home as the Pirates lost all three of their games there. Both teams had ERA’s over 5 but again it was the situational play that made the difference. Joe Page was great for the Yankees late in games in tough spots saving two and not allowing a run.

1905 Pittsburgh Pirates over 1971 Oakland A’s
Four games to zero
MVP: Honus Wagner (.667, 1 HR, 8 RBI, 7 SB)
 
Four completely sparkling games for the Pittsburgh Pirates and, especially for their undeniable star, Honus Wager. It was like Wagener had a chip on his shoulder and wanted to show the world just how good he is. Wagner went 12-18 in the series, hit a home run, drove in eight, and oh by the way managed to steal seven bases. Wagner is the true definition of a star who can carry a team. Still the Pirates had much more on their side as well and just overwhelmed the Athletics in a sweep that was in many ways not even close.
 
Deacon Phillipe had two complete game wins and started the series off with a shutout. Phillipe outdueled Vida Blue and allowed only two earned runs in the clincher. The Pirate pitchers as a team were dominant allowing only five earned runs for the series and handcuffing the Athletics with zero home runs. The Pirates stole 15 bases in this series and batted .326 as a team. When teams look at this series and scout it however, the only thing they will likely remember will be Honus Wagner.

*Preliminary Round *


1999 Cleveland Indians over 1950 Detroit Tigers
Four games to three
MVP: Roberto Alomar (.464, 2 HR, 9 RBI, 2 SB)
 
A fine series that saw almost no pitching and a ton of offense went the distance as Cleveland closed it out on the road and scored 44 runs in the seven games. The series went back and forth with nether team winning two games in a row. Some standout moments included the three run winning home run from Jim Thome in game five and the four RBI performance by Kenny Lofton in game 2. A grand slam by Hoot Evers in game seven wasn’t enough as the Indians scored six runs in the 7th inning of the deciding game to win it going away.
 
Evers drove in 12 runs in the series as both teams batted well over .300. The Tiger pitching however was terrorized and ended with the highest ERA we have seen thus far at 7.22. Kenny Lofton and Roberto Alomar were particularly impressive not only for their speed and average, but for the fact that they combined to drive in 19 runs. Every pitcher on both rosters had a workout and pitched in the series where bats prevailed and the Indians were slightly better in the end.

1929 New York Yankees over 1998 Houston Astros
Four game to two
MVP: George Pipgras (2-0, 1.97, 17 K)
 
Two years removed from their dominant years, the 1929 NY Yankees are still strong enough to power their way past the 98 Astros. Babe Ruth in game made the Astrodome look small with two home runs in the opening game win, Ruth however for the rest of the series would hit only .250. The rest of the Yanks picked up the slack in the rest of the games, Bill Dikey drove in five while batting .333 and Tony Lazzeri also batted .333 while driving in four. Lou Gehrig had a very quiet series with only one RBI in total.
 
The Yankee pitching served them well with ace George Pipgras showing off some of his best stuff in his two wins. Craig Biggio had a very nice series for Houston batting .429 but the rest of the team wasn’t very consistent and missed scoring chances. The Yanks took a 3-1 series lead before losing a game and heading back to Texas. In the deciding game, Waite Hoyt not only pitched well to bring his team a victory, but he also drove in three runs in an all around great performance.

1977 Philadelphia Phillies over 1911 Detroit Tigers
Four games to two
MVP: Mike Schmidt (.357, 1 HR, 11 RBI)
 
The 1911 Tigers were one out away from forcing a game seven in this series but the 1977 Phillies rallied in game six for four runs in the bottom of the 9th to steal the win and close out the series. Ollie Brown had not played the entire series, but his pinch single off of Jack Lively scored Bob Boone as the winning run. The series was well played with the Phils taking game one in 12 innings and winning all three games at Veterans Stadium.
 
Philadelphia has always had a special dislike for Ty Cobb, but the Hall of Famer only plays better under pressure and in this series .480 with 12 hits and 7 RBI. The hitting overall was good for the Tigers but their starting pitching just didn’t have any good outings. Little Larry Bowa was excellent at the top of the order for the Phillies and Greg Luzinski and Mike Schmidt drove in 18 runs and had 21 hits between them in the middle of the order.
