That looks like a 1st base. Wasn't the hit off the 3rd base?

Gunny Highway: Time McCarver must be stopped.


I gave him credit for Pandoval last night, as I thought he slipped it in there in a clever way. Then he farked it up by repeating it 3 or 4 times as if he was amazed at what he just did.

And I lost my shiat when he made the Barry Manilow reference.

I thought about that too, but from that angle you can see part of the pitcher's mound. If it were first base, you'd be looking toward the outfield and not see the mound.

Other than the fact that we in SF have been calling him Pandoval for several years now...

the picture is of third base; the pitcher's mound is on the left. If the picture was of first base looking in, the mound would be on the right

That was ridiculous. If someone makes a reference to one of the best hitters of all time/one of the most controversial figures in recent baseball history, during a game featuring that player's team, and you think that the reference is about a singer, then YOU SHOULD NOT BE CALLING THE GOD DAMNED WORLD SERIES!

Like I told my brother-in-law, who's a Detroit guy, other than the Verlander meltdown in the 3rd, the Tigers played a solid ball game.

Also, what the fark was Leyland thinking leaving Verlander in there for the full 3rd after getting lit up like that? Much less bringing him back for the full 4th inning to lose another run?

Don't get me wrong, I was happy Verlander was the gift that kept on giving to us, just rather puzzled.

Oh, so it's easy to hit a ball over 400 feet against a guy whizzing one past you at close to 100 mph. This aint bowling my friend.

That's the beauty of it. It takes more than a fit, toned body to succeed in sport. You have to be think and react quickly. Anyone who can use a thin club to hit a ball the size of an orange that's travelling 96 miles an hour 400+ feet, is enough of an athlete for me.

Don't be all mad Detroit fans, SF has been playing some impressive baseball this post season, and doing things no team has ever done, they deserve some credit for that. This will be a great series, besides, no Yankees is always a plus.

i was really pulling for a Giants-Yankees World Series so the Giants could get retribution 50 years later.
There would be no game 7 line drive - Giants would have drubbed em in 5 games max.

That's a good point, and you're right, that would have been cool. I was actually hoping for another Oakland and Giants series, minus the earthquake this time. Would have been a much better series than in '89.

This question is begging for the Dougie's Diary treatment.

10:43AM: Drives through KFC, snags five Double-Downs. Drives out through the rear wall, eating three; throws the other two at Frosted Flakes billboards. "Who's GRRRRRREAT now, güebón?"

10:47AM: Hits the freeway. Kills it.

10:48AM: Enters breakdown lane, accelerates to 107 MPH. Rolls down window, screams at cars he's passing, "PANDA'S GOING DEEP!"

10:59AM: Calls the traffic officer a pajizo, eats speeding ticket. Peels out at 104 MPH.

11:00AM: Kills it.

11:04AM: Cachaca time. Raids stash of nips in glove box, drinks four.

11:13AM: Finds week-old arepas in glove box. Kung-Fus them into his mouth, giggling. Kills it.

I kinda concluded that the whole Barry thing was deliberate. I imagine Buck and McCarver sitting to dinner off air the night before or something discussing their disdain for Bonds. Then when the opportunity arrives while on air, McCarver takes it to get in his jab, and Buck sounds like he's all chuckling but trying to even it out for the home viewers. McCarver is an idiot but he's not that dumb. It had to be on purpose.

But maybe I am reading too much into it. One way or the other, we get it, thanks for your input. He still is loved (let's just say "respected" instead) by a lot of Giants fans.

In which league can an overstuffed meat sack not be successful, NBA, MLB, NFL, or NHL? Do you not take any of them seriously?

You know who was an amazing athlete? Michael Jordan. I bet that in his prime, if he had decided to jump from the NBA to baseball, he would have completely dominated the league.

Oh, wait...

I own two Michael Jordan Upper Deck baseball cards. I have no idea if they are of any value. Last time I checked (when they were new) they were worth $6 apiece. He's wearing a White Sox uni. I believe he had trouble with the curve ball, the slider and the fast ball, with catching, throwing and base running. But he looks GREAT in the uni.

peachpicker: I bet that in his prime, if he had decided to jump from the NBA to baseball, he would have completely dominated the league.


The reality is, Michael Jordan actually did one of the most impressive things I've ever seen in sports by being able to jump, completely fresh, into AA baseball and, by the end of his season, was actually good enough to "compete" at that level. Had he played another couple years, who knows if he'd have improved, but he was certainly improved by winter baseball.

I could have seen him finding a way to make it to the NFL as a receiver. Hell, he may have been AMAZING at it (considering how fast he proved himself on the baseball diamond, of all places). Baseball, though, requires a skill-set at the plate where the average basketball player would have been jealous of Jordan's low batting average.

Considering the Yankees have only been to the World Series twice in the past decade, not sure what that "always a plus" comment is about.

Would depend on which Yankee team showed up. The one that DID show up to the playoffs honestly shouldn't have even gotten past Baltimore, but if they actually played like they were supposed to.. the team from June-August, Yankees more than likely would've killed the Giants.

He hit .202 with no power. If he weren't Michael Jordan, he would have been released. At the very least, demoted to A ball.

farbekrieg: deion and bo seen snickering in the dugout


Deion and Bo literally had nothing to do with the sport of baseball between their high school years and their early 30s? Odd, that's not what I remember.

ChrisDe: He hit .202 with no power.


He made money, so he would have been kept around another year. He also, according to coaches, drastically improved over the last month and showed greater improvement in fall league ball (where he hit over .250 with minute power).

Note: he wasn't going to be a major leaguer, but people really understate how hard it is to hit a baseball, particularly if you're very tall and haven't played the sport other than with your kids.

I doubt that. He called it "one of those moments" (or something along those lines). If it were intentional, I think he would have somehow let the audience know he was joking and not senile/retarded

Because I hate the Yankees so it's nice to see them lose. The June-August Yankees? Really?
