Re: MLB Discussion - 2012 Season

After Fister got hit, Tim McCarver said that he thought pitchers would one day be required to wear protective headgear. I'm not sure if this will be the case. Most pitchers would probably rebel against that. It'd get in their way, I think.

Re: MLB Discussion - 2012 Season

There a lot more talk of that in the lower levels, little league and school ball. That's where it will start and once those guys get to MLB, they won't know any different.

Re: MLB Discussion - 2012 Season

But where does it all end? Every player on the field wearing full-body armor? I mean, I don't want anyone to get hurt, but they (and by they I mean Tim) are going overboard, IMHO.

Re: MLB Discussion - 2012 Season

It should end with reasonable protection.

Speaking of ending, one more game for the Giants.

No one would believe the Vogelsong's story if it weren't true.

Incredible...

My two boys are 12 and 9 so it's a lot fun watching them experience this, such an age sweet spot.

That last pitch by Romo, could hardly believe it...

That last out reminded me of when Ryan Howard struck out to lose the NLCS in 2010. How can you just stand there and take any pitch that is close.

Re: MLB Discussion - 2012 Season

YES! Man was that a stressful game but what an amazing win to cap off a great season. And to think my wife and I just got married in April (with a Giants themed wedding, no less) the same year as one of if not the best Giants seasons ever. Coincidence? I think not!

Congrats to the Giants! I was kinda rooting for the Tigers just because they haven't won it in a while, but I've got no problems with the Giants winning it all.

Congrats to the Giants, even if I was rooting for the Tigers (and rooting for at least not a sweep when the first became a lost cause).

Dreadful World Series with about as much drama as waiting in line at the DMV.

Watch Howard enough and you'll see that he's been making a habit of it.

Re: MLB Discussion - 2012 Season

Well, I would have preferred a longer series, but at least the last game was interesting, much more so than the other three. Funny, this postseason has been one of the most exciting I've ever seen... until the World Series, which was a bit lackluster. Ah well.

Congrats to the Giants!

Re: MLB Discussion - 2012 Season

Speaking as a Giants fan, that was long enough...

Seriously though, with the weather, it would have certainly messed with the schedule it things had gone on longer.
