Every series, the World Series being no exception, has an out-of-nowhere star come through in the clutch. In the NLCS, it was Cody Ross for the Giants. He could not be retired.

With that being said, there are still a group of players who you KNOW will make a difference. These guys are not necessarily the best from each team, but definitely the most influential. A lot rides on the performance of all of these men.
Here are the top nine most important players in the 2010 World Series.
