sh!t was boring yo
2011: Sandoval 1 for 1 with an RBI, Brian Wilson gets the save, NL wins.

2012: Sandoval 1 for 2 with 3 RBI's, Melky Cabrera 2 for 3 with a HR and 2 RBI's, wins MVP, Posey scores a run, Matt Cain gets the win with 2 shutout innings, NL wins.

2013: Other than 1 AB, the Giants sit on the bench the entire game, AL wins.

Just sayin. lol

No. This is how it works. I'm sure every baseball fan on this forum can agree here:

1. I mention the 2013 Cardinals season
2. Since the Giants suck in 2013, their fans mention their victory over the Cardinals in 2012.
3. Since the Giant fans want to mention their past success, I also mention the Cardinals past success.

Giants fans live in the past. Rubber was an example earlier trying to cling to Posey's past awards.

Congrats. The only Giants player to play tonight was Posey. He was 0-1 w/ a K and a few passed balls.

But as I told Rubber, I'm sure he'll have plenty of time to watch the playoffs while he is at home looking at his past.

Lol, Posey has been in the league for 2.5 years. Past...you act like we are talking about the 1908 team. He hasn't been around long enough to have a past.

And we live in the past?

Oxymoron says what?

You don't live in the past because you lost in the past.

2012 results have 0 effect on this season. Other than the Bochy lead offensive attack tonight.

Cards went 1 for 7 tonight...

1 more hit than the Giant All Stars

You're right. Maybe they should have given the MVP to Kimbrel.

I think Miggy had the best overall performance

Hit a double, scored the winning run and had a couple great plays at third.
One that took away a hit saved a run and ended the inning.

lol getting crossed up on a couple bad pitches arent passed balls.

Bochy didnt play his guys because he wanted them rested. It has nothing to do with ability. Stop defending the Cards players who sucked.

I still think Bochy should have pinch hit Scutaro for Carpenter in the 9th. Let the guy have an All Star at bat. Also, I would have loved to see Romo get 1 batter in the 9th.

Bochy might have made the most smartest move to sit his own players so they can be fully rested for the second half. Hey, I would remind them the pundits have picked the Dodgers to win the NL West.
I'll just bump this for this year instead of making a new thread.

Wainwright named NL starter
Hernandez named AL starter
