    Wow - this is so tough to predict - a 97 win vs a 98 win team and both 4-3 game WS victors over Baltimore! While the 71 team faced perhaps the strongest pitching lineup ever - four 20 game winners and to still come out on top was amazing - except for Clemente, the rest of the Pirates offense had a fairly dismal output during the 71 playoffs including Stargell. The 79 team on the other hand, overcame a 3-1 game deficit to win 3 in a row behind amazing offensive performances of Stargell, Parker and Matlock. I'm leaning to the 79 team but only slightly. Not unlike trying to matchup the 4 Dynasty Steeler teams. At the end of the day though, ain't it great being able to even do a comparison? Too bad it involves so much ancient history for both the Pirates and now the Steelers.

    Ain't that the gospel truth.
