Since the trifecta of the Yankees(98-00) the baseball pundits have proclaimed the superiority of the American League over the National League.
|2007||Boston Red Sox||Colorado Rockies||4-0|
|2006||St. Louis Cardinals||Detroit Tigers||4-1|
|2005||Chicago White Sox||Houston Astros||4-0|
|2004||Boston Red Sox||St. Louis Cardinals||4-0|
|2003||Florida Marlins||New York Yankees||4-2|
|2002||Anaheim Angels||San Francisco Giants||4-3|
|2001||Arizona Diamondbacks||New York Yankees||4-3|
What are they going to say this year that the BoSox were the superior team but playing down to the level of the competition allowed tampa Bay to get to the World Series ??
Sorry pundits the two best teams went to the World Series and the best team was left with the trophy.
