"The Giants did it tonight. They really did.
They were prohibitive underdogs to the Texas Rangers, but after winning four out of five in convincing fashion, you had to wonder where the analysts all went wrong. Because there was little doubt which was the better team.
Josh Hamilton was 2 for 20 with one RBI and one homer; Vladimir Guerrero was 1 for 14 with two RBI.
What do they say about good pitching vs. good hitting? Yep. Still rings true.
I’m not sure if tonight’s accomplishment has sunk in with the players, coaches, executives, scouts, front-office personnel and clubhouse people. I’m not sure it’s hit me, either, and they pay me to provide perspective on stuff like this."

Well put my man, well put. A tip of the hat to Bruce Bochy, Tim Lincecum, and Edgar Renteria finally picking up that World Series MVP. Its been a long 13 years since his last World Series championship. In fact, last night was Renteria's second game winning, world-series clenching RBI.
The beard has been feared.
