    World Series 2010

    Surprised at absolutely NO baseball related threads on here. How bout them Giants?! Getting absolutely NO credit or slack from the east coast biased media. Telling Halladay and the shitass phillies fans to suck it and cliff lee to shove it. Fucking insane postseason thus far.

    We were the underdogs against Atlanta. We got no chance against Phillies. And now we are the underdogs against the Rangers. If we win the World Series, then next year, it would be the same story.

    We must win at least one game in Texas and then clinch it at AT&T Park.

    Shouldn't surprise you since Baseball is only big in the USA and Japan, and also Cuba I guess. The rest of the world doesn't even know what it is, just hears Americans talk about it

    I'm an Oakland A's fan, so honestly seeing the Giants winning actually hurts me, and our fan attendance.

    Not a baseball fans nor am I a Giants fans, but I'm still damn proud that an SF team wins something.

    The shitty thing is, I think all of them were shitty during my 3 years there. And now since I'm gone, Giants win the World Series and I think 49ers have improved a lot?

    Fuck

    Good to see some baseball fans here. I was definitely rooting for the Giants, I hate those smug Yankees and Phillies fans, I wish the Giants slammed the Yankess in the finals, but who cares...I hope the Giants go on winning some more, the great core pitching is there.

    Great win for the Gigantes but I'm still wondering when they'll either invite professional clubs from around the world to the MLB's World Series...or simply call it what it is, American Series or American Baseball Champions...But World Champs?

    Well, most of the world's best players play in MLB. In the other sports you have other leagues that are slightly less in the quality department. Any good Cuban or Dominican either plays in MLB or trying to come there.

    The Japanese league might be something, but if there is anyone that is exceptional there he ends up coming to MLB. And frankly, after Ichiro came no big super star came from there and made it well in a consistent basis (like Dice K.)

    sad thing is, while the official names for NFL and NBA are just "champs", listen to the announcers, the NFL reps e.t.c. and they ALL say "world" champs

    i'd seriously laugh if they call the MLS champs "world" champs...hahahahahahahaha

    It's analogous to the Euro Champs claiming they are World Champs or CL champs the same way...World implies the world is playing/participating, not a select number of players from different countries.

    And as someone else mentioned, there is a World Cup of Baseball, which the US has won 4 times out of 38

    Jesus Christ, you are all so dense.

    It's merely a term, it's ridiculous to have an issue with that. It's something that a six-year-old would struggle with.

    If you really insist on it though...
    You fail to make the distinction between clubs and national teams. Blackmore, baseball IS the "best baseball playing country" when it comes to clubs, which is what the World Series is about. The World Cup of Baseball, the World Baseball Classic, and Euros are irrelevant.

    And no, it's not like the CL champs saying they are world champions. It would be like if every other continent played football/soccer at a level so much lower that there was little to no chance of the CL winners losing to any other team. The MLB champs are far and away the best team in the world, and hence, World Champions.

    When I was in the US...going to a baseball game was easily the most tedious and boring thing out of the entire trip (even after going through fucking Wyoming!)

    If there was no beer, I'd of committed muss murder in that place...such was my frustration at this horrible sport. The crowd is so out of it...they need to be told by an electronic speaker when to start chants...they then follow these chants and then stop once the electronic speaker stops. Not to mention playing random outtakes of movies during games? Do they realise how terrible the sport is they need to play scenes from movies? How many exciting things happen in the game? 1 or 2? Why do you have to wait over an hour for this to happen? World series? For a sport that is really only big in 2 or 3 countries? OXYMORON! What's with the lines at the kiosk? Why are there so many jocks with beer bellys giving each other so many high 5's? Why are there so many scalpers outside? WHY!?

    Maybe I'm just pissed because I thought the nachos at the game would be the bomb...they fucking werent! I hate you baseball. I really really hate you.

    Oi, the same thing can be said about cricket with their tea breaks and weird screams by those ballers or whatever they are called.

    Again, it's called World Series because the best players in the world play in MLB. And if they are not, it's because they are Cubans that can't get out or homesick Japanese with weird phobias.

    I like it because of the many great defensive plays (over-the-fence home-run robbing, double plays and those diving catches.) Not to mention the fact that you can be down all game long, but you get three guys on base and you can score 4 runs with one swing.
