How About Them Jints? (World Serious Champion Edition)

The lovably misfit San Francisco Giants, the postseason team least likely to win the World Serious, did just that Monday night.

In the process, they once again (after cuffing him around in Game 1) made Texas Rangers ace Cliff Lee look all-too-human. Lee actually pitched pretty well in Game 5, but one bad pitch (Hello, Edgar!) done him in, as they say.

Meanwhile, hats off to:

• Giants ace Tim Lincecum, who went lights-out in Games 1 and 5;

• Giants closer Brian Wilson, who recorded two saves, zero earned runs in te Serious;

• Series MVP Edgar Renteria, the first non-Yankee in baseball history to have a game– Series-winning hit in two World Series.

Given the small TV markets involved, the Fox network didn’t love this World Serious.

But I did.

    Somewhere WBZ’s Bob Lobel is saying, as he usually did when former Red Sox players performed well after they left Boston, “Gosh! You think the Red Sox could get players like that!”
