Now let's get him a goddamn ring.

It's two things. The first is the genuine lack of talent when it comes to Bay Area sportscasters. When a dimwit like Gary Radnich (or Dumb and Dumber in the Giants booth) is held up as the gold standard, it's actually a very low bar to clear. Second is the overall provinciality of San Francisco; that anything here is better than anything anywhere else and that anything must be filtered through the lens of what it means to the city. How many times have I been subject to bandwagon fans putting the Jints' success only in the context of the Dodgers? Bay Area journalism is bad, but its sports reporting is near the bottom of a very deep barrel (exceeded only by the awfulness of its arts coverage, but that's another subject).

@Purple Drank Meet you there. I'll be coming up to the city later today.

I have to agree. It's not like the Pads are a shining example of success tone emulated. I'm hopeful, though.

The only thing I hate more than the giants is their moronic fans

I haven't watched for five years. The prospect of the Jints, Cards, or Sawx winning was too depressing.

@Diane Nguyen A friend of mine was in an ER in the East Bay, but it was just too much for him, so now he's in a more general practice in the city.

@Dodgers Nerd @Bill Grabarkewitz @foldamort Point taken, but as foldamort pointed out, to pitch as well as he did for as long as he did in insanely hot weather and on three days rest points to his ability. He'll get no disparaging from me.

@DodgerDawg I was way ahead of the curve on that one. Hell, Tracy and Griittle are actually looking pretty good about now.

@foldamort @Dodgers Nerd It would also have helped if the offense had been able to score some runs after the first game.
