    Everyone laughed at me when I predicted the San Francisco Giants to win the 2010 World Series before the playoffs started. Their hitting was too weak everyone said. The Giants may not have the Yankees firepower, but what they do have is consistency. You can count on those players to give it their all every night, whereas the Yankees' billion dollar payroll will have off-nights from time to time.

    Tonight's game showed that despite what the media is saying, this is still a big series and a big deal. I was standing during the bottom of the ninth, I do not know how you could not be.

    Congratulations Giants, you deserve it. And the Rangers, you deserved more support from America in this series too.moreless
  • Good Pitching Beats Good Hitting and Defense Wins Championships - Part II

    Congratulations to the San Francisco Giants on a dominating victory!! This is a very well deserved championship and long overdue for the Bay Area. It's the franchise's first championship since having left New York in 1958.

    Tim Lincecum rebounded from an awful Game 1 start to show off his two-time Cy Young award winning form and the Giants somehow beat the previously undefeated Cliff Lee. From top to bottom, the Giants outhit, outpitched and badly out-managed the Rangers, who had a fantastic season in their own right. They won the franchise's first playoff series and the American League pennant defeating the mighty Yankees along the way.

    Both teams deserve hearty congratulations for a terrific season. With all that youth, the Giants might be at or near the top for a few seasons to come.moreless

  • QUOTES (3)

    • (on losing the World Series)
      Texas Left Fielder David Murphy: We know we're a better team than the team that showed up here. But at the same time, they played the game a lot better than us for four of the last five games. Ultimately, that's the team that's going to win.
      Texas Third Baseman Michael Young: We have a great offense. We feel we should score no matter what. They threw really well. Give them credit for that. As a competitor, you always want to put it on yourself. You always want to say that it doesn't matter who is out there, that you want to score some runs. We just didn't get it done.
      Texas Second Baseman Ian Kinsler: It takes a lot of luck to win a World Series. There's no doubt about it. Baseball is a game of luck and a game of skill. It takes both to win a World Series, and they had both. Their pitchers were extremely skilled. Offensively, we definitely expect more of ourselves, and they outexecuted us.
      Texas' Jeff Francoeur: What are you going to do at the end of the day when (Tim) Lincecum throws like he does?. He's won two Cy Youngs for a reason, not because he got lucky and ran into them. Tonight, he had every single pitch working.

    • (on his seventh inning at-bat when he hit a three run homer)
      San Francisco Shortstop and World Series MVP Edgar Renteria: The first two pitches I think. I said, I think they're going to pitch me around, but I know Cliff Lee is a great pitcher. I have a lot of respect for him. When he threw me the two balls, I said, I'm looking for one pitch. If he throws it, I'm going to swing. After that I'm working the count to see if he can walk me. But I got lucky, he throw cutter inside, the ball no cut. So the ball stayed in the middle.

    • San Francisco Manager Bruce Bochy: Yeah, that last out, I've been fortunate to be in this game and manage for quite a while and have never been to this point. It's what you dream about, and the last Series (a 1998 sweep against the New York Yankees as manager of the San Diego Padres) didn't go well. I was just hoping to get one more chance at this. You know, it's a euphoric feeling that's so hard to describe. For us to win for our fans, it's never been done there, and with all those great teams. And what was neat through all this is Willie McCovey and Willie Mays, Will Clark, J.T. Snow, Shawon Dunston, all those guys that played on World Series teams, they were in the clubhouse, they were pulling for these guys. They wanted them to win, and the players felt that along with the fans.
      (on being called a genius)
      San Francisco Manager Bruce Bochy: No, it's not me, believe me. It's these guys. Edgar (Renteria), what he did in this series, all these guys. You know, and I can't say enough about how they accepted some roles. I'm sure they weren't happy with me, playing time, guys were used to going out there every day. But they stayed ready, and they had one thing on their mind, and that was to do this. And that's what it took because we did change some things. But it's not going to work unless they buy into it, and they did.
