Giants end torture, finally win it all


For the first time in 56 years, the Giants are World Champions

Torture no more, Giants Nation. Edgar Renteria broke a scoreless tie with a two-out, three-run seventh inning homer off Cliff Lee and Tiny Tim Lincecum pitched eight marvellous innings to lead San Francisco to a 3-1 win tonight for the franchise’s first World Series since 1954, and first since moving to the Bay in 1958. Lincecum gave up just three hits and struck out 10 Rangers to grab his second win of the Fall Classic, setting up local crazy man Brian Wilson for a one-two-three ninth to touch off the celebration. Renteria’s .412 average and pair of homers, including the winner tonight, were enough to grab MVP honours.

It was a long time coming for San Francisco, and must be especially sweet after a heartwrenching loss to the Angels in the ’02 Series. They were the best of the best this time around, though, knocking off the Braves in a tightly-contested four-game NLDS, then the two-time defending National League champion Phillies in six to get through to face Texas. They dealt with Lee, who came in undefeated in eight previous playoff starts and 3-0 with a 0.75 ERA this year, beating him a pair of times in the five-game series to come away with it all. Well deserved, if you ask me.

So, that caps another year of baseball. How long until pitchers and catchers report?

  1. Someone on the Giants after the game “We have no stars on this team!”

    Did they forget their 2 time Cy Young winner who only gave up 1 run in the same game?

    Either way, I’m satisfied with this result.

  2. I’d like to see a take on the ManRam Toronto rumours…

  3. “So, that caps another year of baseball. How long until pitchers and catchers report?”.

    Yeah no kidding. I miss baseball already. It was actually a really good baseball year. Anyways, congrats to the Giants. They owned the rangers much like the rangers owned the yanks in the alcs.

  4. Yeah, no bats, but a crazy pitching staff that is only gonna get better…

  5. Hello everybody, hope to know eachother better in near future 🙂

  6. I was very disappointed when I visited some of the sites recommended for young girls. Most them tried to lead girls to join groups and become part of communities, promising interaction with their peers. Almost all the sites featured The Death Quiz, IQ Tests and many trial offers, which I thought not to be appropriate for children. Many sites had their own online stores attached to their gaming site. With that in mind, I recommend sites which children can play like barbie games, bratz games, cooking games, and many more without redirecting them to other non gaming sites.

  7. Going into 2011 my new years resolution is to drink less coffee. Have a wonderful 2011!
