Only 134 days until Opening Day.

With this Giants victory, our Sox remain the only AL Central team to win it all since the division was formed.

They need to get better on the fundamentals. Money does talk. But talk is cheap.

The National League is schooling the AL this decade in fundamentals. Interleague aside, you can't argue that the Giants and Cards make all the right moves in game situations.

It's a real shift with the elimination of stimulants.

Yep. Hard to believe the Royals have a more recent WS win than Detroit.

Sox - 2005
Twins - 1991
Royals - 1985
Tigers - 1984
Indians - 1948

Congratulations S.F. Giants on the 7th WS title in franchise history (2nd in San Francisco).

The Giants are the 3rd team that have won 2 WS titles in the last 10 years. The others are the Red Sox and Cardinals.

I'm totally okay with that! The only thing I don't like about it is when some posters like to use this as some sort of vindication of the way Sox management has run this team over the years.

Seven wins in a row to get the job done. Almost as good as eight in a row. I called the last pitch fastball to myself. But I didn't want it down Broadway. Fooled Cabrera anyway.

Bye baseball, gonna miss you.

Congrats to the Giants, they remind me of our championship Sox, same kind of scrappy team.

Sorry Mr. Illitch, all that Little Caesars cash can't buy a title.
I prefer the Milwaukee tradition of Roll Out the Barrell and can't disagree, but God Bless America is probably here to stay. The Star Spangled Banner before the game tradition began as a show of patriotism in World War I (long before the U.S. had an official national anthem), and it's still going on almost a century later.

The Giants were written off for dead twice this postseaon. I quite enjoyed the Giants persevering to make the Tigers look so bad.

Greatest Arsenal goal I have ever witnessed. Chills to this day watching it.

Jealous that the Giants have so many fans there. Makes our turnout in Houston look miniscule.

Mr. Illitch didn't look good at all. I'll be surprised if he makes it to next Opening Day.

Sandoval a very deserving MVP, but no question that Dave Righetti deserves a lot of the credit for winning this series.

Pitching and defense wins titles; who knew...

Yes. The team is obligated to award rings to all players who were on the Giants active roster during the 2012 regular season and postseason. The union considers it a benefit.

It will be interesting, though, to see what sort of World Series share his former teammates vote him.

A funny aside: Tigers fans on their board are dogging Sergio Romo for his antics on the mound.

Umm, they do know who their closer was for the last couple of years, right? Tigers fans have absolutely zero reason to dog another team for having a closer who hot-dogs a bit.

This shoe, it's so uncomfortable on the other foot.
