5.0 out of 5 stars repeat performance for Blue Jays April 11, 2008
1992 was the historic year that the Blue Jays won their first World Championship. It was the first time the championship was not in a US city and of course the first Canadian team to win a series. The Montreal Expos had been around a lot longer but never even got into the series. Future Hall of Famer Paul Molitor was the big star. However the series was won on a walkoff home run in Game 6 almost as exciting as Maz iin 1960. But it looked like after Game 5 that the Blue Jays were in control and a game winning homerun in Game 6 is somehow less dramatic then if it occurred in a dramatic Game 7 where a lost is fatal.

I was in a rehab center at the time recovering from a pituitary tumor that affected my mood. I dideven want to watch the seires even though I had always been an avid baseball fan. But these teams didn't appeal to me at all. My wife visited and made me watch game 5 thinking that baseball would pick up my spirits. It didn't. I think I saw the latter part of the game Toronto won 15-14. Lots of hitting and drama but oddly not tthat way for me. The next day the Bkue Jays wrapped it up at home but I didn't even watch it.

Pennants in Philadelphia are few and far between. I think Mike Schnidt and the 1980 Phillies were the only Phillie team even to this day to win a series. With Mitch "wild thing" Williams, Len Dykstra, Tug McGraw, Curt Schilling and John Kruk the Phillies had a interesting cast of characters! This series is actually fun to watch with many exciting moments and lots of hitting and Joe Carter's home run was as exciting for Blue Jay fans as Mazeroski's was for the Pirates in 1960.

There are a number of interesting statistics and trivia facts tied to this series. In his review Lawrence covers virtually all of them!

4.0 out of 5 stars The Toronto Blues Jays repeat as World Series champions November 30, 2003
The David and Goliath roles in the 1993 World Series were obvious to everyone. The Toronto Blue Jays were the defending World Champions, back to become the first team since the 1978 New York Yankees to win two titles in a row. Meanwhile, the Philadelphia Phillies had finished last the previous year, so making the World Series was something of a surprise, led by young ace Curt Shilling, wildman reliever Mitch Williams, and sparked by Mets castoff Lenny "Nails" Dykstra, who hit four World Series home runs for Jim Fregosi's club. The series MVP was Paul Molitor, who batted .500 and had 8 runs batted in during the six games.
The signature moments of this series were Game 4, the longest game in World Series history at four hours and fourteen minutes, won by the Blue Jays 15-14, which also made it the highest-scoring game in postseason history. At the end of three innings it was 7-6 Toronto, with both starters gone, but by the end of seven Philadelphia was up 14-9. Then the Blue Jays shelled two Phillies relievers for 6 runs. Of course the next game was a pitching duel won 2-0 by Schilling to stave off the end for the Phillies. In Game 6 Joe Carter hit the Series-winning home run on a 2-2 pitch off of the Williams with two outs in the bottom of the ninth, the first championship walk-off homer since Bill Mazeroski for the Pirates in 1960.
Blue Jays fans will want both the 1992 and 1993 World Series videos, and they will see that the common denominator is their team's two championships is scoring runs late in the game. Unfortunately the 1994 World Series was never played, so Cito Gaston's team never had the chance to go for the three-peat. For Phillies fans, losing a World Series they were never supposed to be in is certainly worth remembering.
