Yesterday was the 25th anniversary of the Yankees-Sox one-game playoff game. It is famously known as the "Bucky Dent" game, but it was much more than that, at least as far as the Yankees are concerned. Lou Pinella made two plays that were just as important to the Bomber's victory, and oh, by the way, Reggie Jackson's 8th inning solo bomb to straight-away center turned out to be the difference.
Blaming Dent is like blaming Buckner. It sounds great but doesn't tell the whole story.
