The Most Competitive World Series of All-Time Formula

Let’s explore the difference between “excitement” and competition. What made the 1986 World Series between the Red Sox and the Mets an emotional rollercoaster was obviously the game-losing error, but it was also the fact that it occurred during extra innings play. There were multiple lead changes, in addition to the Mets as a team returning from a 2-0 Series deficit to win four of the next five games.

But something not everyone remembers is that there were no lead changes until Game 6 and only three in total. If you examine it through our competition formula, you’ll find that the ‘86 Series is not even among the Top Ten “Most Competitive” World Series of all-time (it’s actually in the Top 20.)
