San Francisco GIANTS: When pitching is your strength, you want a good defense

The 2012 World Series was the 108th edition of Major League Baseball’s (MLB) championship series. The best-of-seven playoff was won by the National League champion San Francisco Giants in four games over the American League champion Detroit Tigers. It was the Giants’ seventh World Series title, second in the last three years. The Tigers became only the third team to be swept in the World Series after sweeping the League Championship Series (LCS), following the 1990 Oakland Athletics and the 2007 Colorado Rockies. It also marks the first time since 1990 to feature a National League sweep of the American League. The Giants’ Pablo Sandoval, who in Game 1 tied a record by hitting three home runs in a World Series game, was named the World Series Most Valuable Player (MVP). (read more)

“When pitching is your strength, you want a good defense,” manager Bruce Bochy said. “That shows up every day. … Hitting sometimes, it comes and goes. But as long as you can stay in more games, the better chance you have of winning them, and that’s how we play.” (read more)

Hope, we cockfighters, get something from story… on how to breed better gamecocks, on how to train better roosters, on how to heel better weapons, on how to spread cockfighting sports to all liberty loving people of the world…

“when single stroke is your rooster’s strength, you want a good defense.”
