Baseball is over. A four game sweep isn't great for us neutral fans, but it's pretty great for those in San Francisco. The Giants finished off the Tigers in the tenth inning, when Ryan Theriot (playing DH for the first time in his career) singled, was bunted over to second, and then scored from first on a Marco Scutaro single. Now how would that have worked if the Giants had some big base clogger playing DH instead of Theriot?
Pablo Sandoval won the World Series MVP award, but that won't prevent me from singing.
Hail to the Buster, the Buster, the Buster.
Hail to the Buster, the Buster Posey.
He hits singles and doubles and triples and home runs.
So hail to the Buster, the Buster Posey.
Now only if we had picked him instead of not protecting Josh Hamilton in the rule 5 draft.
- David Laurila recaps game four.
- Sam Miller recaps the entire playoffs with gifs.
- Sergio Romo struck out Miguel Cabrera looking to end the game with an 89 mph fastball right down the middle of the plate. How'd he do it? Because pitches have context, writes Jeff Sullivan.
- Tim Lincecum was pretty bad as a starter this year, and pretty good as a reliever in the postseason. Scott Spratt takes a close look at why, and discusses whether or not he should be moved to the 'pen permanently. It's a good read and the same question applies to discussions of Wade Davis's future.
- Tom Tango makes an amusing typing error.
