The Thomaston Times: SF Giants are champs - Really?

The Thomaston Times: Founded in 1869…Confounded in 2012.

Oh, yeah, the Giants had pitching! Really? What I saw was professional hitters looking amateurish swinging at pitches a foot out of the strike zone and then taking a strike “right down the middle.” Why? Who knows? They just slumped at the wrong time.

The Giants hitters were nothing to be proud of, either. Other than Pablo Sandoval’s three-homer outburst in Game One, the Giants showed very little offense at all. Their few clutch hits provided the difference in the other games.It was just a boring series!

The one area in which the Giants lead the universe is in hair! What an unsightly bunch. Tim Lincecum’s long girlish locks are laughable. Brian Wilson’s outrageous beard should be banned before he steps on it. Sergio Romo, Hunter Pence, and Sandoval also had facial hair that has no place on a baseball field. Just an opinion!

Aside from Sandoval and Posey, the Giants are a bunch of spare parts that morphed into a workable machine at the right time. Baseball experts who are much smarter than I may disagree, but I’ll stand by my opinion. You can have the Giants, I don’t want them.

They beat the teams that they were required to beat, including the Steven Strasburg-less Nationals.



That Giant-Nationals series sure was a doozy.
