Freddy Sanchez has been the Freddy Sanchez I have seen since 2004.
Wednesday’s 11-7 lopsided victory for the Giants was not only dominant, it was nostalgic.
I have been cheering for the Giants all October long. They have been my “second team” for a few years now. After visiting AT&T Park and the city of San Francisco I fell in love with the Northern California mentality.
Not only are the girls warm, the ambiance is as well.
I like to say I’ve adopted San Fran as a place of my own and the Giants followed.
WIth my favorite former Pirates, Freddy Sanchez a key member of the National League champs, my fan hood grows deeper.
Look to the left. That is what I wore this evening, Representing the Bay Area in Morgantown, West Virginia I got chills when the starting lineups were announced and went nuts when I heard the soulful sounds of Tony Bennett sing before the game and God Bless America.
This game was great for baseball and set up for a great World Series. Yes it was a blowout and yes a closer (Brian Wilson) entered with a non-save situation but it was a fun game to watch.
Sought of as a boring World Series or not relevant in some minds I think tonight showed that other teams are deserving and th Giants mean business.
PS How bout Freddy?
3-for-4 and a sparkplug the entire night. FOX gave him player of the game honors. The three doubles were a world series record. If the champagne is bubbling notch up Sanchez for the MVP.
I still miss these days…
