Rosenthal: Giants pull together, keep on winning

What we are seeing, more than anything, is an organizational triumph. A triumph of sacrifice, unselfishness and resiliency. Of relationships. Of people.

Ryan Vogelsong, Tim Lincecum and Gregor Blanco come from different ends of the baseball earth. But together, they brought the Giants within one victory of their second World Series title in three years on Saturday night, playing central roles in a 2-0 victory over the Tigers.

Vogelsong and Blanco weren’t members of the 2010 team. Lincecum was, but in a different, more prominent role. If the Giants, leading three games to none, finish the Tigers, other clubs will be wise to take note of San Francisco’s one-for-all, all-for-one organizational ethic. It defines everything the Giants do, and is the backbone of their success.

Three players. Three stories. Three triumphs.

Thanks to VY.

But only if they win. If they lose the World Series 4-3 they are a bunch of undisciplined goofballs without the professionalism to win in the Big Leagues.

That's where Melky went wrong. He thought about individual chemistry.
