World Series: So That Was Something Else
I’ve been battling what my wife and I think has been a sinus infection, and alcohol really congests the heck out of me, so I haven’t been drinking like many other adults out there. I wish I could have had a beer or something, but the extreme feeling of happiness will do. I don’t know how we can process this, so I’ll just do a by the numbers thing.
0: Number of times the Giants lost in the World Series

3: Wins the Cards had until Zito led the charge; also the number of innings the Giants trailed in the World Series
4: Wins against the Tigers in their first ever World Series matchup
6: Runs scored by the Tigers, tied for the fourth-fewest in a four-game series in MLB history
7: Consecutive wins the Giants ended their season with
