In honor of actor Andy Garcia and his (unintentionally) hilarious reaction to Sofia (Mary Corleone) Coppola's death scene in "The Godfather, Part III."

W-Walsh L-Lavender

Most Valuable Player-Ed Walsh (2-1-1, 1 save, 6 games pitched). It isn't even close. Walsh pitched in 6 games, including the first two games, which ended in ties. Walsh worked so hard in the series that it was the beginning of the end of his career.

Booby Prize-Chicago Cubs. After two ties, they dominated the Sox and jumped to a 3-0 series lead, the last of those games being an 8-1 win. After that, they completely collapsed and lost the next four, two on late inning rallies-and they also blew a 9th inning, 3-1 lead in Game 2, which ended in a tie-and were blown out 16-0 in the final game. Until the 2004 Yankees came along, the Cubs had the dubious distinction of being the only team in baseball history to blow a 3-0 series lead and lose a best-of-seven series.
According to Rich Lindberg, rumors floated around that the Cubs had laid down in the series to support Frank Chance, whom they knew would not be back the next year. That seems a bit silly-that the Cubs would take an insurmountable lead before tanking the series for their manager. Why not just lay down and lose before that? The charges may have come from people who could not believe that the Cubs could lose a series in the manner that they did. Be that as it may, Lindberg writes that the charge was never proven.
