Read that last night. Just utterly ridiculous.

Pablo gives the Giants the lead.

Wow....Giants are on fire.

Sandoval goes deep again, this time a two-run homer, and the Giants have a 4-0 lead on Verlander.

They win this game and they're winning the series.

Yeah, got who knows how many millions dollars invested in those prospects and you've them doing things like sliding drills in the dark at 5 a.m. while the coaches try to jump over them. How and why it's been allowed to be continued over the years is beyond me.

I can't believe the Giants have a chance to win 2 World Series in 3 seasons. Aren't they one of the lowest payroll teams in MLB?

They're like the new Marlins but with better front office. Don't think they blew up their roster from 2 seasons ago.

When Pagan's chopper hit the third base bag, with two outs-nobody on, it was on Verlander's 50th pitch. Finished the inning with 70 pitches.

A stupid ball that hits the 3B bag and takes a weird bounce leads to a four run inning. I've bitched about the Cardinals getting all these ridiculous type breaks the last two postseasons, but it appears the Giants are starting to rival them this year.

Not even close to the lowest payroll. Top 10 payrolls in 2010 and 2012.

Oh, it's the other Bay Area team I'm thinking of that has one of the lower payroll.

Even if they're top 10, I bet their payroll is still half of what the Yankee's, Red Sox, Cubbies and Phillies payrolls are.

Yeah, the roster is more or less the same, except Cain and Lincecum have kinda switched roles, although Lincecum is worse right now as a starter than Cain was in 2010.

The Giants are just a weird team if they end up winning it all. You look up and down their lineup and there's a whole lot of "meh" names. Posey is a stud, obviously, and Sandoval is a good player. Pence as well when he's on, but he's cold right now. But now Marco Scutaro is locked into 1940s Ted Williams mode and Barry Zito has turned the clock back 10 years and is pitching like 2002 Barry Zito.

I don't know...even if they win it, and despite having 94 wins in the regular season, they'll still be one of those "bleh" type championship teams I forget about in 10 years.

The roster is actually very different. Only two position players (Posey, Sandoval) playing tonight were playing on that 2010 team. The rotation is what has remained consistent though. It wasn't a roster blow up like people are accustomed to, but gradual changes like the calling up of Crawford and Belt.

And now Barry Zito is getting RBI singles off Verlander. That's four straight games the Giants starting pitchers have knocked in a run.

Yep...definitely their year.
