Default Greatest Series I ever seen since 1991

Congratulations to the Arizona Diamondbacks and the co-MVP's Curt Schilling and Randy Johnson. Also way to go Luis Gonzalez.

I predicted a Yankee win, but I am so glad to be wrong and stupid.

I do disagree with Schilling being co-MVP. Randy Johnson went 3-0 in the series. Schilling gave up the go ahead run to put Arizona behind, but he did pitch great in all three games he pitched in. He finished 1-0, but Johnson pitched better winning three games and stopping the Yankees late in the game(Game 7).

Randy Johnson is the true MVP without a doubt. He is the first pitcher to win three games in a World Series since Mickey Lolich of the Detroit Tigers did it in 1968 which I watched. I was 12 years old at the time. Just a pup. That was also the year Denny McLain went 31-6 for Detroit.

The Yankees dynasty is finally over! Praise God and thank you.
