Re: Introductions Thread
Greetings, Reds Zone!
Lifelong Giants fan here! I found this message board during the nail-biting NLDS series last week and have been quietly lurking since then (hearing the perspective of other team's fans is fascinating to me and I feel it adds to the overall experience of enjoying sports). With our historic series to discuss, along with a few other mutual issues - such as your newly extended manager, the great Dusty Baker - I figured I'd sign up in hopes of engaging in some intelligent baseball dialogue! Although our two teams don't typically cross paths with much regularity, the strong, informed opinions of this place have inspired me to join the fray. Here's hoping for some stimulating debate in the coming days!
Right off the bat, I'd simply like to start off by saying great series, fellas! Certainly must-see baseball at it's finest and while SF may have come out on top this time, the dichotomy of the Red's potent lineup versus the Giant's homegrown pitching looks like it could be a fantastic playoff rivalry for years to come! The parallels of these teams are also pretty provocative; I can relate to many of your frustrations with the recent struggles for a young stud like Drew Stubbs (Tim Lincecum has given our fan base equal fits). I'm also hoping for a speedy full recovery to your MVP candidate, Mr. Votto. We Giants fans were blessed with a miraculous comeback by Buster Posey this year and the results have been wonderful to watch! I'd also love to jump in on your guy's Dusty Baker thread on the main forum, when and if I gain posting priviledges there.
Anyways, this intro has been longer than I anticipated, so I'll go ahead and hit submit before I keep rambling like a mad man. Hope to hear your perspectives soon!
