Hello MLB Lovers!
I have been gone for a quick minute… Well, more like a year and a half! I think I’ve neglected this account enough (and I finally remembered my password!) and thought of it fitting to dust off the blog and type and little something.
As everyone knows, I’m a dedicated Giants fan! Have been for most of my life (not all because, well, I did got through a Barbie phase and pink stuff stage…) and I have to say, it was AWESOME seeing the Black and Orange win that World Series!! I was STOKED but probably not as stoked as those who waited 50+ years for that moment! I still get laughs when I look back at the “Expert Picks” for not just the World Series, but for the NLCS too! Although the championship moment was months ago and there are still traces of happiness and celebration, it’s time to look at this 2011 season, in hopes for a repeat. Well for me, I would be perfectly content with a them winning the NL West.
Now, since their season started March 31, a lot of people (A LOT) have been upset that the Giants aren’t in first, with a season’s best record start and flawless pitching. It is ONLY like the 3rd week into the season, and it’s pretty hilarious to see all these people freak the hell out, call it a season and retreat back to where they came from. Just because they’re World Champs, doesn’t mean they’re flawless and perfected the practice of baseball and winning. Since they won’t end this post-championship season with a 162-0 record like EVERYONE thought they would, I think it would be better to continue to support them the same way we always have, even before they won the ‘ship. Just a thought.
On another note, props must be given when they are needed. Rockies are totally playing awesome, with a 10-2 (about to be 11-2) record. It may only be the start of the season, but this team is definitely looking to make some noise in not just the NL, but in the entire league.
I may be a Giants fan, but I respect the competing teams because they’re all trying to get to the same place in October and there’s no wrong in that.
I’m sure by now, everyone has heard about Bryan Stow and the incident at Dodgers Stadium. My prayers, thoughts and well wishes go out to that man and his family. Baseball was meant to bring good times and memories for friends and families, not a tragedy such as this. However, I am very happy that he has waken up from his medically induced coma, and hopefully this is the beginning of a recovery process. Rivalry between two teams should be left on the field and it is so tragic that two fans attacked another fan just because of his love for baseball. I hope they catch the men who did this to Bryan Stow and that justice be served.
Here’s to a good season, healthy competition and exciting moments. See you all at the park.
