And in the end... the love you take is equal to... NO TORTURE! Shocking, really, right? Series win in 5. 2, almost 3 shutouts. 2 completely clean 9th inning saves by Wilson. How un-Giants like, especially for this season.
I have been following since 1971. I was 5 and at the game when Bob Robertson jacked 3 home runs. I was at the Quake game in 1989. I was at one of the 2002 games (a win, actually). This year, I had a ticket for Game 6, but am so glad I did not have to use it.
I knew going in that Texas had to be worried about Renteria. Yeah, those Giant pitchers are OK, but the guy we really fear is Edgar Renteria. So I guess it makes one of our worst signings ever worth it somehow. I just hope we don't give a similar player a similar contract next year.
Anyway, we can all die happy now. Tonight we celebrate, or at least breathe a sigh of relief.
