I've never seen anything like it in all my life. Down 9-5 in the bottom of the 9th, the Dodgers refuse to stay dead and hit FOUR STRAIGHT home runs! Kent, Drew, Martin, and Anderson all went yard to tie the game, including the latter two off the very first two Trevor Hoffman pitches! Zoinks!

Only made better by the fact that the Pads scored one in the 10th followed by a 2-run shot from Nomar to win it.

Probably one of the best games of our era, no hyperbole. This is a no-brainer to be on ESPN Classic within five years.

It also proves a couple of things. Nomar deserves NL Comeback Player of the Year. A fantastic season capped off by that game-winner deserves some recognition. Not bad for someone many wrote off as washed-up.

Does it prove that Trevor Hoffman's starting to lose it just a bit? Pads fans, is it time to panic?

And most importantly of all, I hope this shows Dodgers fans that they shouldn't LEAVE IN THE 8TH INNING! Probably one of the best highlights from last night was watching a bunch of goofballs who had left the stadium try to get back in. The Angels pulled off a bunch of rallies in the late innings in 2002 and now those fans stay to the bitter end, no matter what. I sincerely hope this starts a similar movement with the Dodgers, because I'm tired of L.A. being the butt of that particular joke.

Oh, and I (probably the most cynical "fan" alive) am now officially on the Dodgers bandwagon. If that performance doesn't show they're for real, I don't know what will.

Was the rest of the game good too though? I didn't see it myself so I don't know. It always bothers me when a game has one good inning or a last second shot or hail mary and is suddenly considered a great game. Like Game 6 of the '86 World Series. Yeah amazing finish, but pretty crappy game.

I don't know, depends how you look at it. I could see an argument for Nomar but I can also see an argument for Beltran. Beltran wasn't injured badly enough to miss the entire season last year like Nomar, but he was injured all year he just played through it. His reward for playing through it was getting blasted by the New York media and all of baseball for being overpaid. Now he's not only the player the Mets played for but has actually probably exceeded what they expected.

Didn't they do the same thing in the '88 World Series Kirk Gibson homerun game? Those silly Dodgers fans.

Carlos had a tough year here, in 2005. But Nomar was DOA for the Dodgers. He has had a fantastic season for them this year. Well done!

After that great win the Dodgers have since dropped two in a row to Pittsburgh (who has been playing some pretty good baseball anyhow) and slipped back into second place.

Let's see if they can avoid the sweep tonight.

I'm just wondering, but who is going to play outfield for the Braves? The only person I can think of is Andruw Jones, and he's not good enough to play all 3 OF positions. Are there prospects, or am I forgetting somebody?
