****The Official 2012 World Series Thread****
GAME 1, at SF: SF 8, DET 3
The Giants wasted little time against Justin Verlander, as Pablo Sandoval went deep off the Tigers' ace in the first. Sandoval hit two more homers, including a two-run shot off Verlander in the third. Fece Zito tossed 5 2/3 frames of one-run ball, and San Francisco's 'pen sealed Game 1.(

GAME 2, at SF: SF 2, DET 0
Madison Bumgarner and Doug Fister exchanged zeros for six, but while the Giants lefty followed with a 1-2-3 frame, the Tigers righty allowed a leadoff hit in the seventh, which led to Game 2's first run. Bumgarner and two relievers combined on a two-hit shutout to take a 2-0 Series lead.(

GAME 3, at DET: SF 2, DET 0
The Giants kept stifling the Tigers, with Ryan Vogelsong working out of jams for 5 2/3 frames, and Tim Lincecum and Sergio Romo finishing the shutout. Gregor Blanco's RBI triple and Brandon Crawford's RBI single were enough as San Francisco moved to within a win of the Series title.(

GAME 4, at DET: SF 4, DET 3
Marco Scutaro's two-out RBI single in the 10th inning sealed the Giants' Game 4 win and a sweep of the Fall Classic in Detroit. Delmon Young's homer in the sixth helped send it into extras after Buster Posey homered to give San Francisco the lead in the top of the frame.(

This was a shitty World Series for just about everyone not named BIG_DADDY.

The Giants are determined to keep their virginity right now, it seems.

I came in at the end of the Tigers' half of the third, and right now this whole thing reminds me of the '69 Mets. Blanco's diving catch on that rocket by Cabrera, Pagan's two-out weak grounder that hit the bag for a double, <strike>Al Weis</strike> Scutaro (of course) singled him in, then the Panda's second bomb.

When a Giant is awarded first base because of shoe polish on the ball I'll be convinced.

Oh, they're still doing these things?

If you would've bet me 8 months ago that Barry Zito would be beating Justin Verlander at any point in the 1st game of the World Series, you could've taken all my money.

I actually didn't know. I was hoping to find out by opening this thread.

I was just sure at the beginning of the playoffs that it would be Yankees vs. Cardinals in the WS just because I hate both with a passion and wouldn't be interested at all. As it is both teams are meh to me and the only reason I'm watching is because I love to watch baseball and it's the WS.

I honestly can't even pick a team to root for. Don't like or hate either one. It might have been kind of nice to have a villain to root against but I'm glad the Tanks and Tards lost anyway heh.

Baseball has become a niche sport just like everything else except the NFL.
