Any World Series that goes seven games has a chance to be called "great." Murray's Law is that a World Series is like a great stew. It has to simmer awhile before you can assess its true flavor. The 1991 World Series has a lot going for it. All those one-run games, extra-inning affairs. Let me root-root-root for the home team, if they don't win it's a shame, and all that. . . . But a World Series is like a blockbuster movie. The cast of characters is all-important.
