Listing the 5 worst baseball teams to ever win the World Series

2 Point Lead: Worst Teams to Win the World Series

Alright, the Mets and Royals/Blue Jays are pretty good teams. Whichever one of these clubs cruises through four more wins and clinches the World Series will certainly deserve it.

But have you ever thought how some teams might not be worthy of being the last ones standing after a grueling October journey?

Think about the very average 1997 Marlins. Or the 83-win 2006 St. Louis Cardinals. Or the 1906 Chicago White Sox.

It just goes to show, it's not which team is best; it's who catches fire at the right time.
