Guess there's concern on their end that St. Louis could still come back. I'm pretty sure if TLR was managing, a Giants player would be taking one in the ribs in the very near future.
C'mon, this is Game 7 of the NLCS, not a game on April 17th

No mercy.

Well I think Brandon Belt just put the exclamation point on this one.

St. Louis, you have 3 more outs to celebrate being the defending World Champs.

Hey, if it rains hard enough, you might get a rain delay out of it!

This is nuts. I have never seen a game played in a rain like this.

Congratulations to the 2012 National League Champions: The San Francisco Giants!

The Giants will welcome Justin Verlander and the Detroit Tigers for Game 1 of the World Series on Wednesday night.

My prediction: Tigers take the crown.

Re: MLB 2012 Playoffs, Championship Series Edition

Congrats, Giants. You were clearly the better team over the last 3 games. Not sure that's saying much the way the Cardinals played...

The future is bright for St. Louis. Carpenter wasn't full strength. Wainwright with a huge amount of innings after TJ surgery. Garcia goes out. So much young talent coming up. I'll predict now that the Cards will go a different route next year and have home field advantage in the early rounds for a change.

Congratulations to the Giants. Go represent the NL and beat the Tigers!

It's a sad ending for the Cards, but I'm optimistic about their young arms.

These are God's tears being shed for the travesty that was the past 3 games. Good luck Giants but I hope the Tigers beat you.

Impressive run by the Giants - figured they were toast for sure after game 4.

I like their chances against Detroit.

Yesssss!!

I get my dream World Series!

Going to root for my hometown team, the Detroit Tigers! Probably going to get a shit from my friends here in the Bay Area who all love the Giants.

Re: MLB 2012 Playoffs, Championship Series Edition

Congrats to the Giants and their fans.

Those were three of the most pathetic and embarrassing losses (in a row!) that I can remember watching as a sportsfan. Completely disheartening end to the season. They weren't even competitive. It's hard to stomach. Hope the series is more entertaining for the neutral fan.
