I believe the answer is 3 in the previous 15 seasons: '04 Red Sox, '11 Cardinals, and '14 Giants. The '97 Marlins, '02 Angels, and '03 Marlins have also won since the advent of the wild card in 1994.I'm too lazy to do the research, but can somebody inform Brian how many of the past 10-15 World Series have been won by a wildcard team.
Want to know. Should I go back through this thread and wade through all of Brian's pro-Twins and anti-Tribe messages to find out which was the dumbest? It would probably take me all night, but off the cuff I recall where he said the AL Central race was over when the Twinkies were 10 games up on the Tribe.
