Best MLB Post-Season Pitching Performance

October 8, 2010
Jack Morris MN Twins

I was listening to Mike & Mike in the Morning this morning on the radio coming into work and the topic was MLB post-season pitching performances and which was the best of all time. Of course the discussion started because of Roy Halladay’s no hitter on Wednesday, the first day of the playoffs. Halladay’s gem […]

Best Series Ever

October 22, 2003

The Cubs/Red Sox series would have been a good one, but who knows where it would have placed on ESPN’s complete list of the 100 World Series that have been contested, ranked from best to worst. The best? None other than the 1991 World Series won by the Minnesota Twins. Game 7 still ranks as […]

We’re Talking Baseball

February 18, 2003
