When you look at the position players who were in the top dozen in plate appearances for the 2010 and 2012 championships, only Buster Posey and Pablo Sandoval appear on both listings.

Quite a turnover of position players in only 3 seasons, for a repeat championship club.

Sure they have a lot of illeal Mexicans living there - but Taco Bell isn't exactly authentic Mexican food.
For the World Series, that "ad" is put there by Fox. Taco Bell was a major sponsor of the World Series afterall..........

The one constant of course is the pitching....and Bochy. Who has to be considered among the best, if not the best, in game manager in MLB..

In the last inning of a one-run game in the WS, why would you send up a pinch hitter who had not seen a major league pitch in three weeks, to bat for the last man who got on base?

And why, in the bottom of the 7th of game 2, with the bases loaded in a scoreless game, did Leyland not play the infield all the way in?

His excuse was he didn't want the Giants to get a big inning. Well, that late and with the Giants bullpen, even 1 run is big and a probable winner....and Leyland gave it away.

If the infield had been in, might not Crawford's groundball have gone for a hit rather than the double play?

Maybe so - but their advertising efforts didn't make me decide to visit a Taco Bell and attempt to eat their "food".
