Your World Champion San Francisco Giants

For the 1st time in San Francisco, and for the 1st time since 1954, the Giants are World Series Champions.

The Giants used great pitching by Tim Lincecum, Matt Cain, and Madison Bumgarner, in defeating the Texas Rangers, 4 games to 1.

Brian Wilson struck out Nelson Cruz to end the 106th edition of the Fall Classic.

Edgar Renteria, who hit a 3 run HR in the 7th inning off the Rangers Cliff Lee, was named the Series MVP.
Renteria also got the game winning hit in Game 7 of the 1997 Series as a member of the Florida Marlins. 

The Giants are a great baseball story, and proof that baseball can be played without the big payrolls of the Yankees, Red Sox, Mets, and Cubs.

 It was enjoyable to watch a World Series that featured guys who are living the dream of playing big league baseball, guys who know how truly fortunate they are to be called World Series Champions.

Just for the record, remember I had the Phillies over the Rays this year.

Well, I guess it's good I don't rely on those picks as a way to pay the rent.
