Congratulations Giants on the win last night!!! I watched the entire game. Ya'll totally tore the Rangers up!

I have to admit I did feel a little sorry for the Rangers, especially with all those balls thrown in a row....and that one player that hit that really good ball that bounced off the back of that wall, preventing what would have been a home run.

I have a question. Why did Buster Posey have to run when he hit the ball & it went behind him to the catcher? (Brand new to watching baseball....)

And, why do some of the players warm up with some kind of thing wrapped around their bat?

Anyway, once again, Congrats!

Did Rangers come out to play? It was too easy.

Posey was running in a foul ball?

So the bat feels more lighter when they are at the plate so thats why they use that heavy donut.

I know....it was way too easy. I felt sorry for the Rangers.

Yeah, but with Posey, I don't think he really started to run, but I think maybe the umpire thought he did & forced him on?? The ball went behind him to the catcher. The umpire made him run on to the first. While running to first, he turned to the umpire & put his hands up in the air like "What am I suppose to do? What do you want me to do?" He got out easy, of course, as the catcher had the ball & threw it to first. Anyway, I felt bad for him.

I do hope the Rangers do better tonight!!!! I hope they win at least one game!

I wonder if all the SF fans affected them & caused them to play so poorly?

The batter has the choice of running.

LOL...I actually was during the Philly series-mainly because it was my way of getting revenge for the Bay Area media overhyping the Giants year after year while the A's, even when they are winning, seem to be afterthought.

But then as I watched the NLCS the Giants really grew on me and I really like their vibe. The team doesnt have divas or enormous egos and I like that they are scrappy on the field. They sort of remind of the As when Jason Giambi was first there.

Anyway, I guess Im a fan of both local teams now.

Nope, me and some of my friends aren't rooting for the Giants at all, a few have jumped on the bandwagon though. I'm an A's fan over anyone but root for the Padres for the National League, so I'm a bit bitter and want to see the Giants lose. I wanted to see them win in 02 cuz I hate the Angels, but not this time.

Sanchez did not pitch bad at all. He just gave up 2 long balls and one of them happen to cost his team 3 runs.
