    No, I meant “Mara Wanna”.

    Giants, failing to follow the script I keep writing for them.

    Wow…the Rangers almost came back and made the Giants look really small. Who wins tonight?

    Leah – that’s funny about the winking. I saw that too. What the heck is that? Does he just wink normally, like it’s a tick or something? Or does he do it for the camera (which would be a horrendous answer, I mean who winks anymore?).

    Giants win tonight. And Nolan Ryan looks even more grim in the stands, if that’s possible.

    Bub – why were you listening on the radio? No TV or just a preference?

    Bubdylan Says:

    No cable, Stevie. The only surer way to explode my studies than my internet addiction is cable tv. Netflix & Hulu give me all I can handle.

    It’s crazy in Atlanta radio-wise. There are two main sports AM stations: 790AM and 680AM. Neither had the World Series on last night. I assume it was on one of the “sister stations” to 680, which is about impossible to get at night in the city.

    Bubdylan Says:

    I pay the 20 clams a year to get the audio to any game from mlb.com. It’s nice to get a break from the ATL broadcasts once in a while, especially if I can get Vin Scully for a Dodgers game, or like to listen to really grumpy broadcasters (Cubs) when Atl’s kicking someone’s butt. I’m sure you know this, but some broadcasters are willing to be critical of their teams and that’s always refreshing too.

    Not that I don’t like Powell & Sutton, cuz I really do, but sometimes they go one prune-tini over the line and I gotta switch.

    It’s also interesting to see your team from an outsider’s perspective, hear them talking about Heyward, about the pitching rotation, about how tough it is coming to Turner field when you really need to pick up some wins, etc. They way they still get nervous when Chipper’s up to bat no matter what kind of year he’s having. Etc.

    Leah Says:

    A guy I work with has a patent out on software he designed to cover certain broadcasters’ voices with crowd noise. He can’t stand Phil Sims.

    Leah Says:

    I told him to speed up that patent so I could use it on Chip Carey’s voice next season.

    Steve Says:

    Anybody out there?

    The Giants just look like the better team, don’t you think? And that’s not a question I expected to pose when this series started. And how about Renteria
    ? Not only his bat, but his glove tonight. Unbelievable.

  12. 112
    Bubdylan Says:

    I totally called the “Cain is Able” ESPN headline, though they actually went with “More Than Able.”

    But I could not have predicted their awful masterpiece from yesternight: “Juan Giant Step.” Now that’s doin’ it. Two puns in one.

  13. 113
    Bubdylan Says:

    Steve, I think they “look” (I’m on radio) better, but I also think that’s the nature of the postseason. You have two teams brand new to the WS. The first team to feel the heat was bound to tighten up. And if the first team to go ahead is playing at home, they’re bound to gain a ton of confidence in a hurry.

    Remember the Braves in May & June? How it seemed like they couldn’t lose? Confidence & Rhythm are such big deals in baseball.

    If the Giants pull it off, they should send Brian McCann a ring. I just don’t believe, talent wise, what’s unfolding makes much sense. Love it, though.

    Bubdylan Says:

    EDGAR!!! I forgot how much I like Renty. Nice to have at least a piece of one dog in the hunt.

  15. 115
    Bubdylan Says:

    Giants offense scoring 11 runs a game in the WS? I called that.

    Make that 11.5… and counting.

  16. 116
    Bubdylan Says:

    I call this headline on some Cali rag somewhere tomorrow morning:

    “Giants Mess With Texas”

    Whatcha think?

  17. 117
    Steve Says:

    “I just don’t believe, talent wise, what’s unfolding makes much sense.”

    Well said.

    9 freaking runs tonight. I’ve become a big ol’ Giants ho-bag since they moved on to the Phillies. And, let me say it again – the miserable Nolan Ryan face is just priceless. I have nothing against him and I’m not trying to be mean it’s just off the charts.

  18. 118
    Steve Says:

    #116 – I like it.

  19. 119
    Steve Says:

    And Frenchy gets an at-bat!

  20. 120
    Bubdylan Says:

    lol, Giants radio guy: Francoeur’s a tough guy to walk.

  21. 121
    Steve Says:

    And Frenchy ends the game.

  22. 122
    Bubdylan Says:

    “the miserable Nolan Ryan face is just priceless.”

    It’ll probably be on that mock expression website, whatever it’s called, tomorrow morning.

    Bubdylan Says:

    Buster Posey is being interviewed on the radio. Amazingly smart and likeable dude. I couldn’t be more impressed. Like listening to Glavine do an interview and he’s a rookie.

    Curt Says:

    I’m watching the old Clash of the Titans with Harry Hamlin. Brilliant doesn’t begin to cover it.

    Bubdylan Says:

    SF Radio Guy just now: “Cain’s calm demeanor goes a long way. He doesn’t look new to this at all. He looks as calm as John Smoltz or Greg Maddux after doing it a bunch of times.”
