The answer is no. Yanks dominated and were the far superior team, the numbers don't lie. LAD committed 7 errors, that's too many if you want to win a title.

let's see now - one team outscored the other by OVER 2-1 ratio. one team got OVER 50% MORE hits than the losing team

FK - do you recall who won this series?

i stand by what i said that made you bring this up

IF that play is called correctly - Dodgers WIN the WS - 100% SURE of it

FK - hate to hijack this thread but here is one up YOUR alley

"Did Marty McMEATHEAD'S ILLEGAL stick cost the Kings the 1993 Stanley Cup?"

I think we both know the answer to this one! IF the series comes back to LA with the Kings UP 2-0 (instead of 1-1 which it was)............The LA Kings are your 1992-23 Stanley Cup Champions!

LAD had a 2-0 lead in the series and found a way to blow it. If Russell catches that ball and tosses to first, he gets the DP. He made a mockery of the game by dropping the ball on purpose and got what he deserved. If he wanted to win he should have found a way to not throw the ball anywhere near Reggie. Bad job by Russ, he didn't find a way to get it done.

Also, after that play, the Dodgers were still ahead 3-2 in the game, they still could have held that lead and won the game.

Re: Did Reggie's interference cost the Dodgers the 78 WS?

I'll look into Marty Meathead, didn't know that.
the answer is YES

Kings were up 1 late in G2 when the Habs challenged McSorley's stick. it was illegal - they went on a PP and scored to tie the game and won it in OT. IF McSorley's stick is legal - the KINGS go on the PP and win the game - go up 2-0 and head home and win the series instead Pat Roy stood on his head and the Habs won a few games in OT and the series

That's a bad job by marty. He's an enforcer not a scorer..he doesnt need an illegal stick he doesnt do anything with that stick to begin with.
