    What was the most important game in your favorite mlb team's history?

    Saw a similar thread in the NBA forum and it brought out some interesting facts and links so I thought I'd get it started here too.

    For me... I'd have to say it is one of two games... I can't quite decide.

    Either Game 6 of the 1992 NLCS... where Sid Bream slides safely against the Pirates... See it here

    ---or---

    Game 6 of the 1995 World Series... Braves win... See it here

    I guess for every single person it would have to be the game where their team won the world series right? Whats more important than that?

    Now some teams are kinda screwed for history, like i would have been if it wasnt for 2010.

    I don't know, I guess the WS win in 95 for the Braves validated all those NL East titles. But, at the same time, that big win in the 1992 NLCS put them on the map... after having sucked for so long, the Braves were finally becoming a force to contend with and all the "America's Team" talk on TBS didn't sound so lame while they sat in last place, season after season. That game gave people a reason to watch them other than just loyalty.... and so the braves franchise made a little more dough and could afford a little higher payroll. and the WS and 14 NL East titles ensued.

    I'd have to place my vote on the last game of the season against the Padres. I've always had this sinking feeling that if we didn't win that game, they would have steam rolled over us on the one game play off.

    But...I'd like to go back a few months before that. It was Daren Ford's first game. He stole two bases and scored on a wild pitch which won us the game, 1-0. Although it doesn't seem important, it made the difference when the season ended

    Unless you're a Cubs fan...


    I'd say for me its probably Game 6 in the 2003 NLCS. At least in my history of watching the team.

    As far as favorite game goes its probably Wood vs. Clemens in '03, or the comeback against Milwaukee in '08.

    For me it was game 4 of the 2004 ALCS, but maybe game 7 of the 2003 ALCS was more important because in my eyes it was the final straw before we broke "the curse."

    It's a 3 way tie for me.

    White Sox---

    Since it was win or no playoffs, I'd have to say Game 163 vs the Twins in 2008.

    The playoff run in 2005 was 11-1, so no individual game turned out to be as important.

    Although Game 2 of the 2005 ALCS may have been since the Sox would have gone down 0-2 at home.

    Hmmm...close call.

    I don't agree with you on the bolded. Your Giants have one of the most famous sound bytes in baseball history (ok they weren't in San Fran at the time but still)...you know "The Giants win the pennant, The Giants win the pennat" sound byte.
