    Tough call, isn't it? Each unique in its own way.

    Bumgarner.

    Morris also had some bad postseason performances.

    Morris. He pitched 10 innings in a scoreless game. Every pitch was a potential game-loser.

    Has nothing to do with the question.

    I'll ask an existential question: Why rank them? Why choose?

    The two greatest CLUTCHEST performances of our lives, but can't they just be that?

    I'll take Bumgarner, but it's close.

    It's just ESPNing the question. I wouldn't even know how to rank them or how to take anything away from either. Does Morris lose points because he was at home so he was never pitching a walk-off situation? Does Bumgarner lose points because it was "only" five innings?

    You have to.

    If we're talking about the two best Game 7 performances of most of our lifetimes, I think it's tougher to pitch five innings of relief on the road on less rest (but not by much).

    Morris had pitched six innings in Game 4. Bumgarner had pitched a complete game in Game 5.
