Re: [MLB] World Series Thread (Giants vs Tigers)

said by f0rtys3ven:

The Giants are playing well.

But the big bats won't be be held in check forever.

Who really thought Prince could get home?

Come on don't send a 300 lbr.

He should have been safe... a horrible slide... he slides on the foul side of home he is safe.

I don't give a TON of credit to Giants pitchers... some but not all.

Been watching this Tigers team struggle to score runs all season long... and when they get behind they press and ALL try to hit a HR... can't do that in a WS.

Well I'm a little stunned........it seems that everything is going the Giant's way.

Bunts and balls hitting the bags.......tomorrow's game is a must for the Tigers.

Incredible pitching performance by Bumgarner, I still can't believe he's only 23.

Why? There's a whole host of pitchers who have been dominant at a young age. Doc Gooden won the Cy at 20. Kershaw was 23 when he won it last year. Hell, MadBum's own teammate won the Cy at 24.

It's a very rare occurrence for a pitcher to be this good so young in his career. It has happened before but not often. Also his performances on the biggest stage of all have been great. It's one thing to pitch well in the regular season. It's another to pitch the gem that he did in 2010 in Texas and again pitch so well last night against a stacked Tigers lineup.

More great pitching carrying the Giants. Whereas our pitching overall wasn't as good this year as it was in 2010, somehow the pitchers have found their best stuff when it matters most. I don't want to jinx anything but I will have the brooms ready tomorrow. Our chances look good, especially with Matt Cain, the ace, pitching.

The Boston-Rockies series was like this too. Kind of a shame to watch a team completely shut down right at the end.

They'll come back to win today, if not just to give us a Monday game...

Going to be cold in Detroit tonight, likely only 5 or 6 (42-44F).

Indeed, absolutely zero excitement.

It's not like the Giants are really playing all that great, its more how bad the Tigers are playing... Similar story to how the Yankees just folded to these very same Tigers in the ALCS.

Aside from Verlander's meltdown in game 1, both game 2 and 3 were well pitched by Detroit's starters.

Whatever floats your boat. The last two games were within reach for the Tigers until the end. Bases loaded with one out in the fifth and Vogelsong executes a strike out, gets Cabrera to pop out. Zito's pitching (and hitting), Sandoval's outstanding fielding at third, not to mention his .636 World Series batting average....
Bumgarner, Vogelsong, Lincecum, Romo, Crawford, Pagan, Scutaro, all turned in outstanding defensive play.
You know, bunts go foul or they don't but, Jesus Christ, the batter's got something to do with it. C'mon man! It's not that the Tigers suck. The Giants are a World Class team.
crush?

You know, the interesting thing is: They should be able to get the game in tonight, BUT, if they do win, the next game won't be until November 1. Monday-Wednesday will be write-offs to do the weather front from Canada. On Tuesday, Hurricane Sandy will push everything back over Ontario and Michigan for 2 days at least, with winds peaking at about 40 MPH in Detroit. Not baseball weather.

I want Detroit to win this one. I wanna see my damned baseball in November, dammit. That means, to me, only December, January and February San baseball.

Well, San Fran up a 1 run in the 2nd already. 9-0 when they are the ones that get the lead first.

Could have been much worse.

Every Tiger pitcher is fucked now, because any one on the mound has the chance to be the guy who lost the Series.

Romo does his job and mowed them down in the 10th with 3 strikeouts for a SF World Series win in 4 straight games. And he got the final out against triple crown winner Cabrera to put an exclamation point on it.
