I suppose if you're a Giants fan, then it would feel good. Nice absent bats, Tigers. Idjits.

The post season is all about being hot at the moment. The Giants are. I'm of the opinion that the long layoff really hurt the momentum that Detroit had throughout the playoffs.
It ain't over 'til it's over, and that lineup is still pretty damned scary.

Speaking of which: where's that "Pride, Power, and Pinstripes" thread these days.

The Yanks folded like a card table. A very, very expensive card table.

The Tigers have been under-performing offensively all season. The sweep game of the Yanks is what they should be capable of doing every night, but they are far more likely to score 1-3 runs instead. Very frustrating to watch what is usually very good pitching go for naught because there is no run support.

Uh, that's pretty much what they scored against the Yankees too, until the last game. It was just that the Yankees were even worse....

No, you love watching that- as long as it's the other team doing it.

Good Job Giants.

A run without an RBI the other run without a hit, great fundamental baseball, great pitching and defense and a knowledgeable crown that understood the importance of EVERY pitch and EVERY situation and a team that enjoys the moment and knows how to keep it fun in a beautiful City on a beautiful night.

It's certainly not over by any stretch but the pride swells.


I liked when they showed a sign like this last night. (I can't find a pic of the one they showed)

I should have said 4th game instead of sweep game. Tigers have been a poor road team all year. Hopefully the bats come alive at home.

And you are wrong. I prefer to see a fireworks display of scoring during a game, from both teams is fine with me. Obviously I'd like to see my home team win, and I don't discount the fun of watching a beautiful pitching performance, but give me high scoring teams please. I'll happily take a bunch of aggressive base running as well. At least once per series, someone should Pete Rose a catcher.

It's good to be a part of a group that understands the important nuances of baseball.

Although one of my best friends used to coach his son's little league team and the guy was/is a wreck when it comes to the fundamentals.

As an example he'd have his kid's at second base (The only base runner) try to take third if the ball went to the shortstop.
They got thrown out every time and he wouldn't, or couldn't, understand why that's a terrible idea and how it goes against the rules of fundamental baseball. (Don't run if the ball is hit in front of you unless it's a force out)

His teams went like 6-30 in the 3 years he coached and the kids no doubt went away clueless about the fundamentals. BUT I do give him credit for being out there.

Sorry for the distraction but it's a travel day so the thread is slow anyway.

Ballsack.

God knows I've done my fair share of that over the years.
