After a (slightly) strike-shortened 1995 season, the World Series returned with a match-up of the miserable: Cleveland embodied baseball irrelevance for over 40 years, while Atlanta's awful and empty decades of pro baseball had the honor of a national broadcast. Then the 90s hit, and Cleveland built baseball's best offense, while Atlanta's starting pitching dominated the sport. One franchise had a chance to end decades of misery. The other one? Well, maybe that city would win a Super Bowl? (lol)
