San Francisco Giants…

Dear Reader,

One of the few things I started to follow very closely was baseball, I’ve always watched baseball since the days of Mariano Rivera, the former closer for the New York Yankees. Needless to say it’s been quite a while since I was a Yankees fan.  I’m not a fair weather fan either, so my falling out of love with that team has nothing to do on how dismal their efforts to be part of the World Series have been in recent years. No, I gotta say the reason I’m not a die hard Yankee fan is because unlike most people, I could look past the pin stripes and see that they are just a money machine that buys up the best talent in baseball to insure a legacy. So you see, it was no longer for the sake of America’s pass time, but more like a business to them.

A few years back before Buster and Lincecum, or even the talents of today like Pence and Romo, I became a San Francisco Giants fan and even weathered them during the disgraceful actions of Barry Bonds. They proved me right in no time, they bounced back in true baseball style. Not by buying up the best of the best but just believing in the up and coming talents out there. It all came to me, when I saw them lose spectacularly to another team 11-0. They were playing for the sake of baseball, for the sake of fun. I was sold.

Soon there after, they played wonderfully during the season, and made it to the post season with great numbers, and a lot of unknown faces. Soon they won a spot on the World Series, and they took it as far as it would go. They won the first title as The San Francisco Giants back in 2010. I could not believe my eyes, my team had come a long way and finally got that much deserved honor. Two years later, Buster, Cain and some new faces made their mark on the team, all for one and one for all in an extra innings game that was quite a nail biter. It was the best World Series I’ve seen to date. Beating unarguably the best batter and the best pitcher in baseball. The Triple Crown winner, Cabrera and to date the best pitcher in the MLB Justin Verlander fell spectacularly to the Giants in a four game sweep. Congrats to the San Francisco Giants, may they always play for the love of the game, and continue to prove that in their Mudville Mighty Casey has yet to strike out.
