It really depends to me. If these people are just casual fans, then I don't have an issue with it, but yeah if they are hardcore LAD fans that hate on SF all year vocally, then its pretty weak.

Tonights game is HUGE. For both sides.

Guess you have a point there. To be honest, most hardcore LAD fans, if they're in the LA area, are probably too transfixed onto the Lakers to even care anymore (not that the preseason for us has been awesome either, so yeah...)

I for one have been talking trash on SF all year along, every year. I will continue to do so as long as I can.

However, I will say the most vehement Giant haters that I do know actually live in the Bay Area: usually A's fans.

Despite the 2K's and weak groundball in the top of the first, Bumgarner doesn't look good. No velocity & flat sliders

The Giants want the A's out of the Bay Area entirely so they can have it to themselves and become the West Coast version of the Red Sox. That's why.

Good call by the Tiger third base coach, sending the slowest runner in the league to make the first out at home.
