Although some are, these list its not about upsets. Its teams who had game/series in their hands and fumbled.

The Top Ten

1 Yankees 2004 ALCS

By Game 7, this one was over for the Yankees - opinionated4

2 2011 Boston Red Sox

Literally, they were heading into september as a favorite to win the world series. They needed to go 8-19 at the worst to make the playoffs. To make it all the more agonizing, they went 7-20. The yanks blew an 8-0 lead to the rays to allow them to make the playoffs, but the sox could have prevented it had beltran not dropped a fly ball on the last play in the final game against the worst team in the league, the orioles. Seriously? - opinionated4

Talk about snatching defeat from the jaws of victory. How do Sox fans get out of bed in the morning knowing this? - IgnoreThis

Statistically the biggest choke in the history of baseball. Papelbon blowing his first save in game #162 is just icing on the cake.

As a Red Sox fan, this was just embarassing, heartbraking, and really painful - opinionated4

3 Houston Oilers, 1993 AFC Wild Card Game
4 Fred Brown, 1982 NCAA Championship
5 1986 Boston Red Sox
6 Greg Norman, 1996 Masters
7 Atlanta Falcons, Super Bowl LI

I still ponder how atlanta could blow 25 point lead with less than a half to go - opinionated4

8 Golden State Warriors, 2016 NBA Finals

It was obvious after Game 5 - opinionated4

9 Pittsburgh Penguins, 1975 Stanley Cup Quarterfinals
10 Scott Norwood, Super Bowl XXV

Wide right... Enough said... So much pain... Why couldn't he had made it?

The Contenders

11 Jana Novotná, 1993 Wimbledon Finals
12 Brazil, 1950 World Cup
13 Cleveland Indians, 2016 World Series

Still can't believe they didn't win - opinionated4

This wasn't a choke, just a huge upset - opinionated4
