THE San Francisco Giants Blog

Pitching (check), Batting (check), MVP (double check)

Posted in Uncategorized by eddacker on September 22, 2012

I have been a Giants Fan for a very long time, as have most of you. Very little of that time was my team a team clearly at the top, one of the ‘big boys’, winning and playing good baseball. They are, today, a 3 tool team using defence, offence and pitching. With Pablo coming alive the Giants can add the long fly. As Baggs wrote in his post game report last night:
This is what happens when you combine youthful energy, a commanding lead in the NL West and a team that has all the talent and confidence to make a sustained run through the playoffs.
This team is winning and I am a believer and unlike the NY fans, World Series or not, being in the playoffs means you are a top team; two out of three years now. It is still a month until we will know which of those top teams will play in the World Series. I like our chances.

Buster Posey is a big reason this team is winning. He has had extra incentive lately winning the Willie Mac award for most inspirational player on the team this year. The man is a Giant and there is great joy over, first his return from a frightening injury, second his hardball, winning attitude and, of course, third his shot at the MVP. His game is ON. Even Vern and Vera were bringing him food in the clubhouse saying, “a catcher needs to eat to keep his strength up.”

Posey should add another award sometime after the season ends, when baseball has gone quiet and the league MVPs are announced. Here’s why: over 20 HRs | premier backstop | no worse that 2nd in the batting championship | helped his team WIN the division | plays for the best team with the best fans in the best city. What are your thoughts?

P.S. The WC game is on my birthday this year. If any of you were considering gifting me a play-in game ticket I prefer Baltimore or Oaktown. No thanks if it is LA or Philly. Come to think of it East Coast teams mean cheaper air fair, but let me worry about that.

Hopefully there will be some fan memories made in SF this weekend. GET YOUR BLOG ON!

      Nipper?

    I’m thinking this is kind of magical in its own way to the players on this team. The young ‘uns, Belt, Crawford.. the recharged vets, Pagan, Scutaro, Pence… Posey and Pablo wanting more of what they had two years ago… the hitters getting things done, it ain’t just a pitching team anymore.

    I’m still at a loss for my hook on the clinching thread. I’m open to ideas…

    • tedspe said, on September 22, 2012 at 9:10 pm

      You’re on your own with me, twin. I wouldn’t have it any other way. And I mean that as a compliment

    Is there a video of Timmy’s “fuck yeah! Shut up!” jumping around in the dugout in Atlanta? Always liked that one….

      That’s the best I can do, paul

      • paulinasia said, on September 22, 2012 at 9:19 pm

  11. blade3colorado said, on September 22, 2012 at 9:19 pm

    Go Giants! Can’t wait for the playoffs!

  12. PawlieKokonuts said, on September 22, 2012 at 9:19 pm

    I got chills at the last out and the jumping around, BUT the victory lap, the gorgeously exuberant victory lap, misted up my eyes, especially seeing our patron saints of madness, Brian Wilson and Sergio Romo, leading the charge.

    • Bozo said, on September 22, 2012 at 9:27 pm

      I’m with you on that Mr. Kokonuts.

    • Flavor said, on September 22, 2012 at 9:55 pm

      No doubt.

  13. unca_chuck said, on September 22, 2012 at 9:20 pm

  14. paulinasia said, on September 22, 2012 at 9:21 pm

    Good. Glad to hear some knowing-dude head nodding is going on. Ya’ll were sounding a bit ‘feh’ earlier on….

  15. tedspe said, on September 22, 2012 at 9:25 pm

    Do they really have to bring Greg Pappas in this? Talk about a buzz kill

  16. tedspe said, on September 22, 2012 at 9:39 pm

    GO NINERS!!!!

    Wait…

  17. twinfan1 said, on September 22, 2012 at 9:44 pm

    Merry Clinchmas.

  19. PawlieKokonuts said, on September 22, 2012 at 9:57 pm

    Some chatter on Twitter saying, “Where’s Timmy?” Should we be concerned? G’night, girls. Time to try to attempt to consider to imagine winding down.

    • Macdog said, on September 22, 2012 at 10:22 pm

      Out of your gazillion retweets, my favorite by far was this: “Only the Dodgers could make two teams division champs in the same day.”

  20. PawlieKokonuts said, on September 22, 2012 at 10:01 pm

    ESPN, what doooshes. Go to the MLB scoreboard page and the lead is…….Yankees win. Never mind the Red or Giants clinching. Pathetic. That’s okay. Merry Clinchmas and good night for real.
