GIANTS 3 - RANGERS 1
Edgar Renteria is the World Series MVP for the San Francisco Giants.
Somehow the fact that a guy who was castoff and considered one of Brian Sabean's worst signings being voted as the World Series MVP makes sense, Aaron Rowand being in the starting Lineup for the deciding game 5 was just right, and Tim Lincecum being on the mound was perfect.
All of this, all the beards, the waiver wire claims, the pitching, the clutch hitting, and did I mention the pitching? All of this adds up to the first World Series in San Francsico history.
Tim "The Franchise" Lincecum struck out 10 Texas Rangers, the team with the highest batting average in baseball during the regular season, and held them to one run while outdueling Mr. Postseason Cliff Lee. Edgar Renteria hit a three run homerun in the 7th inning to break a 0-0 tie and account for all of the Giants runs. It was a typical Giants victory.
That's the way the season should end.
I'll have more for you guys as the week goes on. Right now I want to just sit back and soak in the atmosphere. Tomorrow night I'm gonna head up to the bay with my cousin so we can watch the parade in San Fran so it's gonna be a long week since I'm gonna have to work on Thursday!
Celebrate San Francisco fans! Your Giants are World Series Champions!
