Yeah.

Big difference between wanting someone to win (Giants) and having a feeling who will win (Angels).

After the loss last night, Game 7 felt like a formality.

1) One more .300 hitter that can make good contact. It killed them this series to not be able to advance runners because they were striking out at inopportune times (see Reggie Sanders).

2) Dump Livan. Add a better starter. The core of Schmidt/Reuter/Ortiz is great. Ryan Jensen could mature into a #4 starter.

3) Let Dusty go. Starting Pedro Feliz, he of 2 previous WS at-bats in 6 games? Starting a 12-16 pitcher with a 4.35 ERA who got knocked around pretty good previously in the most important game of their lives?

4) Don't let JT Snow go. Ever.
And you wonder why you get picked on.

Actually betting against your team is a good idea if you bet alot. If your team wins your happy, and you won't mind losing the money. If your team loses at least you win some money. It works better if your team is always the favorite though. You bet against them and get some points and your team could win and not cover the spread and you'll win your bet too.

She's been a part of the SoCal sports reporting scene for years. She belongs on that field - and she has been doing a great job.
I know who it is. And I guess it's my fault for not including the (obvious to me) . There is no human on this earth I despise more than Jim Grey.

I generally don't like to bet more than $20 on any given game. I had about $30 in bets going on a couple NFL games and this WS game and won all but one today, so I didn't do too bad.

I didn't feel bad betting on the Angels because I was going to come out a winner either way. Although, I would have rather lost my bet and had my team won a championship.

Dusty Baker sucks as a manager, we should have won this yesterday. Yesterday he takes out Ortiz without giving up a run and pitching the game of his life. Tonight he doesn't take Hernandez out after the first run, he has to let him give up 4 first. Dunston hits a home run yesterday that should have helped win it for the Giants. His reward for that is to be benched for Dusty's gut feeling of playing Feliz. Feliz goes hitless tonight, so much for gut feelings. There goes Bonds only chance of a World Series ring because Baker sucks.

Don't sign Dusty and the Giants maybe can win it next year.
Wow...post of the year!

Well, congrats to the Angels.

Do they have a chance to repeat?


I don't think so!

Why would he get picked on for that? Pretty valid points IMO.

So is Bonds gonna address the media and the world about his thoughts? I'd love to hear why he couldn't make 3 big plays in the last 2 games in left field, etc etc.

I'm sure he'll have something to say soon, now that he is a loser once again.

Damn_skippy just likes picking on me. It's one of those 2nd-grade kinda crushes he has or something.

Even this Mets fan has something to cheer about tonight

1) I own Disney stock so I actually can say my team won
2) I don't have to hear The Mad Dog Chris Russo gloating all year on WFAN radio. Instead he can just think of how close his team came, only to loose in the end.

OK.....I'd rather see the Mets loosing game 7 instead of finishing last.......But I'll take what I can get these days.
