Salmon with another go ahead home run. Incredible night watching him erupt on a national stage.

If there was one guy I ever wanted to have a moment that big in baseball it was him.

After that Salmon HR, my 10 year old daughter (a huge Salmon fan) did a crowd dive into from our season seats into the seats above us. We all knew each other and she couldn’t contain her happinesses.

Just noticed Scioscia’s sideburns went from Black to silver between the ALCS and the World Series.

Really nice defense by Lackey. He’s a big dude.

Appier with 5 runs allowed to get 6 outs.

Enter the kid, John Lackey. Who I met in 2007 at The Catch after a game.

Troy Glaus had a 8.2 fWAR in 2000. Do with that info as you must…

This moment right here. Salmon with a HR in the Series. Incredible. Still get a high watching it.

I’m in disbelief when I watch it. Would’ve thought it wouldn’t have the distance.

Love a good bunt. Indefensible.

I’m pro-drag bunt but anti-bunt

I’m anti giving away outs. I’m pro using another way to get on base.

Kenny Lofton was one of my favorite players of that era. Loved his speed game. I also love Zona basketball, although I don’t remember his career there.

To play in both a Final Four and World Series is incredible. And he played in more than one Series.

After such a huge inning the Giants get right back into it. No lead was safe in this series, as game 6 will show.

Incredible that we started Kevin freakin Appier in an elimination game and lived to tell the tale.

Crazy. I was screaming at the tv about now. Angels had 5 days off, played 1 game, had the next day off.

That’s crazy. Almost like they believed in the gritty veteran or somethin’

Wouldn’t have been opposed to IBB’ing Bonds with a 5-0 lead and no outs, tbh.
