Good to see I'm not the only one.

The Giants payroll has been upwards of $110 million the last couple of years and this year ballooned to $124 million with their acquisitions, so to me, I'm kind of just like, "yeah, well they should actually be making the playoffs - this shouldn't be that surprising."

I was peeved when I saw empty seats in the left field upper deck during the NLCS, too. I feel like if SF hipsters want to rant and rave about the A's not selling out their park during the regular season and hype up your new, downtown ballpark with all your amenities, how about you actually sell out your NLCS games, Giants fans? lol

Aaaaand then ... everyyyyyyone is wearing Giants everything. I bet half of these fans didn't know it wasn't still called Pac Bell Park until 2 weeks ago, LOL

So yeah, I guess I'm being Debbie Downer. I'm an Oakland and Cleveland fan and I'm not ready to witness anyone else get to celebrate something I've never been able to witness in my lifetime (a professional championship of any kind)so yeah, I guess I'm selfish and bitter LOL

A's in 2011!

I bet we can all agree to be happy about the Warriors, though - best start to a season since 1994-95!

My friend, who is an A's season ticket holder, walked in the door last week with a new, never before seen Giants shirt on; some of us booed him and asked him how the bandwagon ride was going, haha. Yeah everyone is all of a suddenly sporting the Giants gear.

Either way the A's are the only baseball team with a World Series title in the Bay Area and even if the Giants pull it off they'll still have just one to the A's four. Yeah I may be living in the past seeing how the last one was 21 years ago but no one here will ever forget it; A's sweep the Giants with a little earthquake thrown in the mix. That was such a great time to be a Bay Area sports fan imo. I would love to see another Battle of the Bay World Series.

Giants did it again! Shut-out the Rangers again; great pitching. Looks even more favorable that San Francisco will win a World's Series. When was the last time a team up 3-1 ended up losing the series?

Only the Yankees and they were up 3-0 vs the Red Sox.

One more win, Hummmmmm Baby!

Bumgarner, the 21 year old Rookie is living a dream! He looked so calm and confident! WOW! Bochy should have let him finish the game though.

FEAR THE BEARD!

Lets go Giants!
