Well it was pretty wild the whole but admittadly it gets frustrating when you K for the 3rd out every inning for like 7 innings.

No beer after the 7th...but it was pretty wild the whole time. I was there I know. I don't care what TBS showed.

The sunday game may have been noisier during the opponents AB's because they kept flashing the Mil/Pads score.

But overall this was a louder game
I'm too lazy to make a sig at the moment

I would have to say this is one of the top two or three non Red Sox games I have seen. I will just lump Sox/Yanks '04 as one game and rank it #1, then Roxs/SD, then maybe Pujols slamming Lidge.

having just entered my third decade...I didn't really start closely following baseball until I was 10 which was 1997...so the greatest games I have ever seen are...(Also I am a Cub fan)

No Particular Order

All of the 2004 ALCS
Pujols destroyes Brad Lidge's soul
Kerry Wood strikes out 20
Mets-Cardinals and Endy Chavez's catch (although I wish the Mets had won)
2003 Bartman game (Great as in Horrible but still Great)
Rockies - Padres

The only postseason in my mind that can match the intensity of baseballs is the NCAA tourney, but sometimes the officiating is so terrible in the NCAA tourney that it isn't even fun

I'll take the entire Yanks/DBacks World Series and the 2004 Divisional series over this game. Those games were played the right way.


This is where I'm coming from. I was actually a little disappointed with this game. I expected to see a great pitching performance from Peavy....didn't get it. I saw crappy OF play from Holliday and Clark. I saw Julio go in there and completely look in over his head. The officiating I could have done without. I was expecting to see Hoffman come in a make one of his last horrah's but he crapped down his leg.

Looked like two teams who didn't want to win to me.....it made for a fairly exciting game I suppose but it was a bad game!!

I have to agree, that whole series for me is just so hard to explain it is still the coolest thing I ever witnessed.


As far as the Rockies game goes I did not get home til the 7th inning, but those innings I saw were right up there as one of the top games ive ever seen.

It ranks around the 25-30 range, and that is covering about 33 years of baseball. Games such as any of the 7 games from the 75 World Series, Reggie' Jackson's 4 HR game in the WS, 83 Orioles WS, 86 Game 6 World Series, 91 Braves/Twins WS, Carter's HR in 93, 2004 Game 4 ALCS would certainly rank well above it, IMO. It is not to diminish the strength of that game, as it was exciting, but it is also how many great moments encompass the game, that this game would rank as low as it does. If we were to take in "All" of baseball's historic moments then it probably falls into the 80s-90s as far as impact. It seems amazing to many because it is so fresh in minds, but when many other games happened as I mentioned, the impact was just a s strong.
