Bennett Jumps Ship: Richard...

Bennett Jumps Ship: Richard Bennett, with whom I have a Worlre's a good Eric Neel column from Friday, here's a column by the L.A. Times' Diane Pucin arguing that Angel fans are out-fanning Giants fans by a wide margin, and here's another L.A. Times story about how the city of San Francisco is in the doldrums.

last night proved that you can pitch to bonds, let him hit his worthless steroid-aided corked-bat juiced-ball taco bell targeted dingers and you can still slay the giants.

Down Goes Frisco! Down Goes Frisco!

The photo on page 2 of the World Series section of the L.A. Times says all we need to know about the San Francisco fans. It shows the lynching of a Rally Monkey, his mouth, hands and feet bound with tapenfo" style="margin-left: 15px;" />

ants currently. Plus, there seems to be a trend that has emerged where mediocre cast-offs of the A's (Brosius - Yankees, Spiezio - Angels) turn into 'dynasty cap-stones' for their new teams...

I admire fans of 'NSYNC and the Angels for their unabashed fervor.

The Angels not only lost game four, but they showed signs of being non-championship-caliber losers (much like my A's the that three years)...in fact I thought I was watching the A's in that loss. It's up in the air.

Any comments on Thursday nights game? I think Mr. Bennett jumped ship a bit early. Not only did the Giants play a pretty solid game that bit with the bat boy was priceless.

It looks good for the Giants but Ortiz (their game six pitcher) is wild and nothing close to a dominant pitcher. I see too much volatility in momentum and the Giants aren't good enough to dominate once they have the edge in the manner of a Yankees or Lakers (few teams can, obviously). Both teams are equal in being always a shade away from falling into a sort of defeatism due to 'franchise self-esteem issues'... I think it's still even.

I said it was even. The Giants looked like they were going to roll like champions in game six. Then it was the Angel's turn to take care of business. Neither team, I don't think, is feeling 'franchise low-self-esteem issues' going into game seven.

(I'm suprised at how much I miss in the details when I don't have an emotional attachment to either team. I listen to Giant's fans going ballistic about this move or that lack of a move, and I think, "I didn't see any missteps by Dusty Baker..." Art Howe against Minnesota on the other hand...)
