With another decade of World Series complete, David Brown of Yahoo ranks them in order of greatness. The Yankees, of course, appear four times, ranking first, fifth, seventh, and eighth — the best, of course, being the 2001 Series. It ended on a painful note, but the two-run, game-tying home runs on back to back nights made that Series especially memorable. The 2009 team ranked fifth, though I think you just as easily could have swapped it with the No. 4 spot, the 2005 White Sox. The Subway Series finished at seventh, while the 2003 loss to the Marlins ranked eighth. The Red Sox historic 2004 victory ranked third, mostly for sentimental reasons (and I wouldn’t know where to rank it, since I didn’t watch an inning of it), but their 2007 victory was ranked the worst of the decade.
