7. 1980 AL playoff sweep by Kansas City and George Brett

8. Horrible from the gitgo trade of Al Leiter for Jesse Barfield

Being swept by the Reds in the '76 Series was pretty bad too, especially losing Games 3 and 4 at the Stadium.

I have the 1981 series loss much higher, simply because that was the year Bobby Murcer should have got the World Series ring he missed out on in the 70s. Would have got one, too, if Lemon hadn't f'd everything up. ... Oh, and the day the Yanks traded Murcer for Bonds is up there, too.

Not gonna lie, i have this second in between Munson and 04

I wasn't alive for Munson.

I have it Game 7 for Arizona at 1, the collapse against Boston 2, this is 3. Arizona was always worse to me than Boston, though I know most Yankee fans disagree with that.

Munson's death is easily the worst.

You can make that 1 through 10.

Mariano's injury is way down om the list.

He is coming back and has already played more years than anyone would have bet in 2000.

If anyone doesn't vote for him on the first HOF ballot, they should have their brain donated to science immediately after. ...and nevermind the anesthesia.

What about the time that I took a foul ball off the side of my head in the dugout, you jerk? Did that make the top 15?
