    While I agree they should've blown away Zito, the others are amazing. Vogelsong, Bumgarner and Lincecum are unhittable when they are on their game. And Romo? That guy is amazing. Cain, as well, though he's struggled a bit lately.

    I think Buster Posey is very cute, but is too baby-faced to be :grope: Awesome catcher, though. :)

    Praying for a rain out tonight. I think it's Detroit's only hope. :(

    At least in the football post season, the maulings only lasts for three hours.

    Matt Cain is kind of :scream: looking but he does support gay marriage which makes him :grope: in my book.

    Meanwhile, the name "Angel Pagan" is sort of a living contradiction if you think about it, isn't it? :EVILLE:

    I literally turned it on in time for the Giants home run. Sorry Tigers fans. :( I'm happy for either team but it'd be sad to see them swept.

    It also took five games for the Giants to prevail over the Reds, not four. ;)

    Finally getting tired after that awesomely intense and fun game to watch. All I could say right afterwards was, "Marco's got a ring!!". More than likely a pretty big goose egg on his noggin too from the bop he took during the Celebration. I'm sure the Champaign's taking care of any pain though. :D

    Congratulations PL, The Giants and the rest of Giants Nation!!

    Sigh...Now that Baseball's done, I'm going to be awfully lost around here w/no Hockey to fill the gap. :(

    Yay, Giants! Dance, PL, dance! lol I'm happy my 82 year old grandma got to see them win another one (she's ailing quite a bit now and has been a Giants fan since she moved here to the usa in the mid 80's). Also happy for in my mind's sick and twisted way, I think of this a payback since the Tigers blew the Yankees out, lol. Woohoo! Now I need to convince my kids' school to switch their Halloween parade to another day so we can go to the Giants parade! grrr

    Congrats to PL and her Giants. :)

    Seriously bummed about the Tigers. You could tell right away in game one that they had lost their play-offs mojo. Oh well. Spring training starts in four months......

    I've been a Giants fan for a long time, though I'm an AL girl all the way, and am really happy for them. (Could Sergio Romo possibly be more adorable?) I'm glad that it was them who beat the Tigers. It made the defeat a lot easier to take.

    I know. :wuzrobbed

    ETA: I'm an AL girl, but I draw the line at the Yankees, and possibly Oakland (don't know why, but I don't like them at all.)

    Tigers have picked up the options on Dotel and Peralta and are bringing back their entire coaching staff. I'm just coming back from a couple year break from baseball so I don't know if this is good news or not but I did like what little I saw of Dotel in the world series.

    Come to Vancouver, we'll show you how to have a riot after a championship series. And the Vancouver team didn't even win! :(

    You know, I just realized I have no idea what the Beard's real name is.
