  • 2012 San Francisco Giants are World Series champions!!!

    Well, for the second time in three seasons the Giants are champs of the world!!! This team has so much character, a fantastic attitude, I couldn't be more proud of their performance. And really, there could have been a number of guys who won the MVP, but the Panda got the Vette!!!


    BTW, a couple of months ago I changed the line under my name from World Champs Moderator to Gigantes Moderator. I am so happy that I get to change it back!!


    YEEEE HAAAAHHH

    Crazy! The Giants went 56 years between World Series titles and now they've won two in three years!! Woohoo!! And the core group us still young.
    Strikeouts are boring! Besides that, they're fascist. Throw some ground balls - it's more democratic.-Crash Davis

      1. The more I learn, the more convinced I am that many players are over-rated due to inflated stats from offensive home parks (and eras)

        Fielder finished 1 for 14 (.111) for the Series.

        How does that classless bowling pin celebration taste now Fielder?
