Sunday Slather, Whirled Serious Style!
I’m pulling for the Giants but I think the Rangers will win again tonight.
Games We Play
Does anyone feel like they're watching a World Series? I don't know how to word it exactly, but I watched almost all of games one and two, forgot about game three until the 7th inning (and think about that), and have no intention of watching game four tonight. Its just been a very lame, boring World Series. Its just a bunch of games.
And, in fact, seventeen people are watching last night
Nah, I'll be watching tonight. Cablevision and Fox finally settled! LOL. No more radio for me.
And I think the Rangers will romp tonight and then most everyone might check out the Lee-Lincecum rematch tomorrow.
I'm watching. As tempting as Saints-Steelers and Ghost Hunters live at the Buffalo terminal are, it's the World Series.
Gonna be a long, cold winter after this. I'm watching all the baseball I can get.
Yup, Rangers almost had a bad break go their way. Dude, Tommy Hunter is such a piece of MEAT.
Got to imagine Vladi is gunna go deep sometimes soon.
What's going on with this strike zone tonight?
Nice play by Hamilton to end that last inning.
Wow...Rick Sutcliffe was a great pitcher but man, he may be the single worst color-guy announcer in history..he's got the occasional inside analysis on what a pitcher is doing, but everything else is cliche and corn-on-the-cob humor..
Some great D in this game! Freddie Sanchez!!
Wait, I think Huff's dinger just landed.
Holy crap, what a bomb.
Hunter can't stay in much longer..
hunter's lucky to have only given up 2 runs (thus far)...
Oops  is for 
pocketful 'o posey!
i'm really against this extra wild card team. bud seems full steam ahead with it. i mean, i guess i'll dig it if the yankees backdoor it and win the whole shebang; but in general, i think 8 teams is fine. i just know that if it was setup that way this season, the shit sox would be playing - and winning - right now. that would be just awful.
i just posted something about this expanded postseason bollocks and my comment is awaiting moderation. what in the fuck is that all about? is bud reading the banter??? i didn't curse as much as i normally do and i didn't include a link. what gives???
16) No, we've been flooded with Spam lately and it is taking some regular commenter's comments and putting them in moderation. Sorry for the hassle.
 acha! oh, no worries! : )
hey alex - what's your take on the name "Madison Bumgarner"? i don't like it myself, but i'd be curious to hear your spin on it. i loved how you said "Fausto Carmona" sounded like a heavyweight champion.
Madison Bumbarner is such a weird name it's hard to believe it's real.
18) Sounds like a British drag queen/porn star.
cool. we're all in agreement. yeah, it's quite an unfortunate name. he's kickin' some major arse though!
that's a big run right there.
Yikes, this "God Bless America" is painful.
I wonder what his nickname in the clubhouse is. Maddy? Bummy?
 I kinda liked it. Well, as much as I ever like that song.
That dinger carried.
So, I guess this Posey kid is pretty good.
 Good thing he's not a cricketer, or they'd have a really sorry nickname for him...
 A phenom as defined by specialists.
is this the youngest battery in WS history?
that was a sweet hook.
Bummy at 106 pitches.
They're not going to let him pitch the 9th, are they?
 From Jayson Stark:
"Madison Bumgarner won't be youngest pitcher in WS history to throw 8+ ShO IP. Jim Palmer was 100 days younger when he blanked LA in '66 [via Twitter]"
 doubt it. the beards were warming up. kid pitched the game of his life. not such a bum after all!
 So there's that, but we await confirmation on your real question...
The Beach Boy is coming in for Bumgarner.
We weren't as lucky with Andrus.
 From MLB.com:
At a combined 44 years, the Giants' Game 4 battery will become the second youngest pitcher-catcher combination in World Series history, behind Jim Palmer and Andy Etchebarren, who were a combined 43 years old when they teamed up in Game 2 of the 1966 World Series for the Baltimore Orioles.
Struck out Hamilton on 3 pitches. The future AL MVP is 0 for 4 tonight.
 awesome. thanks, chyll!
 No problem, I like trivia (except when it impedes progress >;)
