Thoughts from (another) World Series haze

Wow. It's pretty dusty in here. I hope those are spider webs...

After another extremely improbable playoff run by Bochy's Boys, I felt compelled share some thoughts that I had during that amazing month of October.

  • Buster Posey has never lost a postseason series.He was exhausted, and appeared to be taking his at bats in five feet of standing water. He still stole some vital strikes with his ability to frame pitches, and called some great games.
  • It's been 9512 days since the Dodgers won a World Series (come on, A's).
  • It's been less than 7 days since the Giants won a World Series.
  • I can't remember all the superstitions I can forget now.

    I gave Lyle a dryer sheet during game 1 of the NLCS. He didn't use it, and left it on top of the dryer. The Giants won that game, so I left it sitting on top of the dryer all month. It's still there. I will be contacting Cooperstown and MLB about getting it authenticated.
  • History is unscented, in some cases.
