The New York Yankees have won 27 World Series, more than any other team in baseball history. Their last world championship was in 2009.
The Pittsburgh Pirate beat the New York Yankees. I think it was won by a game 7 home run by second baseman Bill Mazaroski who may well have been the MVP. Bobby Richardson of the Yankees was the MVP of the 1960 World Series.
The Phillies and Yankees met in a three game series between May 22, 2009 and May 24, 2009 at Yankee Stadium. The Phillies won 2 of the 3 games. The Yankees then beat the Phillies 4 games to 2 in the World Series.
The Dodgers have won 6 world series, last one in 1988.
As of 2012 September, Suzuki has never even played in a World Series. Depending on how well the Yankees do in the post-season this year, this year may be his first.
The two teams played a total of 9 games during the 2009 season. The Phillies won 2 out of 3 at Yankee Stadium in May and the Yankees defeated the Phillies 4 games to 2 in the World Series.
The Yankees beat the LA Dodgers in the 1978 World Series 4 games to 2. It was the 1st time in history that a team won 4 straight after losing the 1st 2 games.Game 1 Dodgers 11, Yankees 5Game 2 Dodgers 4, Yankees 3Game 3 Yankees 5, Dodgers 1Game 4 Yankees 4, Dodgers 3Game 5 Yankees 12, Dodgers 2Game 6 Yankees 7, Dodgers 2This feat was accomplished for a 2nd time when the LA Dodgers defeated the Yankees in 1981 World Series after they lost the 1st 2 games.Game 1 Yankees 5, Dodgers 3Game 2 Yankees 3, Dodgers 0Game 3 Dodgers 5, Yankees 4Game 4 Dodgers 8, Yankees 7Game 5 Dodgers 2, Yankees 1Game 6 Dodgers 9, Yankees 2This was the series that Dave Winfield went 1-22, which years later prompted George Steinbrenner to mockingly label him "Mr. May" in reference to Reggie Jackson's nickname "Mr. October".
Game 2 of the 1914 World Series. Boston Braves scored a run in the 9th to beat the Philadelphia Athletics. Game 1 of the 1949 World Series. Yankees scored in the bottom of the 9th to beat the Dodgers. Game 6 of the 1956 World Series. Dodgers scored in the 10th to beat the Yankees. Unbelievably, Game 7 of the 1991 World Series was tied 0-0 going into the 10th inning. Minnesota won the game (and the series) over Atlanta in that inning. There may be others, but I don't have the time or energy to check every game of every series.
Paul O'Neill - 1990 with the Cincinnati Reds and 1996, 1998, 1999, and 2000 with the New York Yankees. Another player may be Luis Sojo who was with the Toronto Blue Jays in 1993 and the Yankees in 1996, 1998, 1999, and 2000. He is not listed as having played in the 1993 and 1998 World Series and I cannot find whether he was a member of the World Series roster during those two years.
No -- the best is three games, done more than once. John Wetteland had four SAVES for the New York Yankees in the 1996 World Series. It may seem strange that, right after doing so, Wettland was released by the Yankees. However, his replacement, Mariano Rivera, hasn't done so badly as a reliever.
The last time the Mets swept the Yankees was a series at Yankee Stadium in '08. Originally from May 16-18, it was played on May 17, 18, and June 27 due to a rainout on the 16th.
THey may be down 2 games, but they will win the 2012 World Series!
