Shortest post season runs...

What with the ChiSox currently sitting on an amazing 10-1 record this post season, I wanted to do some research, see how few games teams had played since the wild card created a third series that had to be won to win it all. Playoffs games don't count. Of course, there's a limited window of 11-19.

Maybe if I get bored, I'll break it down by each extension of the post season...

1995: Braves 4+4+6 = 14
1996: Yankees 4+5+6 = 15
1997: Marlins 3+6+7 = 16
1998: Yankees 3+6+4 = 13
1999: Yankees 3+5+4 = 12
2000: (blech) Yankees 5+6+5 = 16
2001: Diamondbacks 5+5+7 = 17
2002: Angels 4+6+7 = 17
2003: Marlins 4+7+6 = 17
2004: Red Sox 3+7+4 = 14

Right now the Sox will win in anything from 12-15 games. Astros in 16-17.

I don't know what any of this shows. I was just curious and bored.
