Here's what I would have tweeted from Grant's account this morning if the Giants had lost: "URLgenio Velez! Going to St Louis up 3-2 probably isn't the time to change the name to Candy Maldumpnado"
I like this way better.
DO YOU WANT TO SEE SOME GODDAMN GIFS? OF COURSE YOU DO. BECAUSE GIFS ARE AWESOME, ESPECIALLY WHEN THEY'RE OF THINGS LIKE MORSE'S HOMER, OR MORSE'S CELEBRATION OF THE HOMER, OR MORSE HUGGING BUMGARNER, OR MORSE'S CURTAIN CALL BECAUSE THAT'S WHEN YOU TAKE A FUCKING CURTAIN CALL, CARDINALS FANS. ISHIKAWA'S HOMER WAS THE LINK ABOVE BUT HERE IT IS AGAIN, AND HERE'S ISHIKAWA LOOKING FUCKING AWESOME IN SLOW MOTION, AND HERE'S HIS TOTALLY BADASS HELMET THROWDOWN LIKE SO BADASS I CAN'T EVEN HANDLE IT. AND HERE'S THE DOGPILE AND HERE'S BUSTER POSEY KISSING HIS BABY TO PRACTICE FOR WHEN HE RUNS FOR PRESIDENT AND HERE'S GEORGE KONTOS MAKING RYAN VOGELSONG SHIMMY A LITTLE BIT AND IT'S THE BEST BASEBALL IS THE BEST GIFS ARE THE BEST THANKS FOR MAKING THEM CARMEN.
Winning is fun.

And now these guys are going to be playing in the World Series. Well, probably not Gary Brown. Sorry, Gary! And an even more heartfelt apology goes out to KNBR callers, whose poor little hearts are probably broken to not see him in the NLCS and World Series. 2016, guys! He can be the next inexplicable hero.
The Giants’ Role Players Shine
Fangraphs takes a look at the contributions of Gregor Blanco, Yusmeiro Petit, and Javier Lopez to the Giants over the last few years. I was pretty down on Javi over the last couple months of the season, but man, is he making me look stupid. I love that! Usually the only person making me look stupid is me, so I'm glad for the company.
Meow The Jewels is actually happening
And I thought this was going to be the highlight of my day yesterday!
