Look at this photo of Ángel Pagán doing a cool jump to rob Erik Kratz of a dinger. You think he got it? He did not.
If there’s one thing you can always count on a baseball player in a high-stress situation to be, it’s a sensitive weenie. Allow me to direct your attention to this moment, from yesterday’s game between the Giants and Padres.
So this is what the San Francisco Giants do. Sort of. They lead the majors with seven walk-off home runs already this year, so we guess that they found a way to win at home to the Rockies even when they were down 5-4 in the 10th inning shouldn't be too much of a surprise. This, though, wasn't just a walk-off.
Pagan's stolen base in the World Series allowed everyone in America to get a free taco this afternoon, but it looks like Pagan finagled a few extra for his efforts.
You've assuredly heard lots about the players who will be most important in this World Series. Buster Posey, Justin Verlander, Miguel Cabrera, Prince Fielder, Matt Cain, Pablo Sandoval—they were deserved all-stars in July, and they've been talked to death this October. But why think of the World Series as a battle…
The Giants beat Bay Area rival Oakland yesterday 4-0 and after the game CSN Bay Area's Jaymee Sire was in the clubhouse asking questions and rolling tape. Pablo Sandoval was lurking, however and while poor Jaymee was wise to his plan to get Pagan, she learned the hard way that the Panda is an agile and shifty creature.
