World Series – Games 1-5

Game 1
We enjoyed Wednesday night’s action-filled Game 1 and it’s outcome – go Giants! – and hope for more of the same as Game 2 is about to start. We don’t watch that much of the Grand Old Game, but when the playoffs and especially the Series come around, we tune in. I can guess who Bill Crider and James Reasoner are cheering on!

Game 2
Wow, what a half inning. The 8th, last night, in which the Texas Rangers walked in three consecutive runs. Has that ever happened in a series before? They then gave up hit after hit, went through several pitchers, in an over-half-hour half inning. Unreal. We’ll be watching Saturday as the Rangers try to come back and win one at home.

Game 3
Texas showed some flashes of their winning ways, and got the home win to make the series interesting, but it was a pretty sloppy game on both sides, and I was glad to be able to jump to college football during parts of it. Game 4 will be telling.

Games 4 & 5
Giants all the way.  Congratulations to the Giants, especially their pitching staff and to Edgar Renteria, series MPV and deserving of it. Fifty three years is a long time to wait. When we were in SF for Bouchercon, they were Giants crazy, and now it’s more so. Good for them.

  1. Being a longtime Dodger fan, I’m going with the National league team, though I do have an admiration of what the Rangers have accomplished.

    It is a good one so far. The Giants once again confounded the “experts” by rolling up nine runs last night. Maybe that will convince them to come on over.

    That 8th inning was one of the strangest I’ve ever seen. Three consecutive runs walked in? Has that ever happened in a Series before? I’ll have a tough decision Saturday afternoon, with a couple of really good college football games on, but I think we’ll watch the Series.

  3. Let’s hope the next couple games are more competitive or this is going to be a very short Series.

  4. Richard says:

    That’s okay, George, then we can get back to watching the Bills smash their way through the NFL… or whatever it is they are doing. Probably get a fairly high draft choice again, though. That’s good, right?

  5. Jeff Meyerson says:

    At this point I don’t think the Giants can do any wrong. I usually root for the American League team but rooted for the Giants against Anaheim 8 years ago and I’m rooting for them again. I also rooted for the Cubs to finally make it back to the Series a few years back but it wasn’t to be.

    I do think it will be over sooner rather than later, George. As long as the Phillies lost I’m happy – well, as happy as I can be considering the Yankees’ pathetic showing.

  6. Jeff Meyerson says:

    Had Texas lost last night it would have been over, so they can breathe again down there.

  7. Richard says:

    I think you’re right, Jeff, but last night was a pretty sloppy game all around.
