My world is giddy with glee, happiness, and relief after our hometown boys, the scrappy, collection of misfits we lovingly call THE SAN FRANCISCO GIANTS have won the National League pennant on Saturday by slaying two-time NL champ and a real Goliath, the Philadelphia Phillies.
The Giants relied on pitching, pitching, pitching. I believe they have the best rotation and bullpen in both leagues.
Tim Lincecum, 2-time Cy Young award winner, leads the remarkable pitching rotation. Timmy is seen here from an old photo. He’s #55.
And coming in the heels of Timmy is equally good and solid Matt Cain.
So while we are all going crazy that our Giants are back in the World Series after 8 years, we are also hopeful that this would be the year the SF Giants would win the crown. Since moving to San Francisco, the team has never won a World Series crown/ring. Keeping our fingers crossed.
