Another unforgettable game for Rays GM?

PHILADELPHIA -- There can't be too many people who were at both the Game 6 of the 1986 NLCS and Game 7 of the 2003 ALCS.

You know, the 16-inning playoff game between the Mets and Astros, and the Aaron Boone game.

Rays general manager Andrew Friedman attended both, each time as a fan. He was a 9-year-old Astros fan in 1986, and remembers Game 6 as "traumatic." He was a 26-year-old Wall Street investment analyst in 2003, with no great ties to either the Yankees or the Red Sox.

He went to Game 7 with Matt Silverman, now the Rays president. Silverman was in the restroom and missed the Boone home run.

"They didn't have the radio feed going in the bathroom, so he didn't know exactly what happened," Friedman said. "He just said that he felt Yankee Stadium was about to crumble around him."

As Game 5 of the World Series is set to resume tonight, Friedman may be in for another memorable night.

But will it match 1986 and 2003?

"Two phenomenal games," Friedman said. "(The '86 game) was an incredible game, quite possibly the best playoff game in the history of baseball. It was as intense a game as I can remember."
