1. Latos latos latos!
Yeah, he got his as kicked in game 5..
I know I know..
But in game 1.. I was totally hammered..
When Cueto went out after one out..
I started reading the reds their last rights..
Low and behold, latos comes in and saves the day!
2. San Fran pitchers getting money RBI"s..
3. Vet lander.. His new nickname!
He makes batters look like dudes stuck in an all boys boarding school!
4. Buster posey and Sandoval..
Yeah they kind of suck..
They are doing a very good impersonation of playoff Eli manning..
This has been a fantastic one two punch..
Dare I say Ortiz and Ramirez..
One day I will tell my grand kids Boston had a winning team!
5. Chris carpenter..
Had a rib removed!
Had muscles in his freakin neck removed!
Had shingles in his face!
But he went out there AND DID HIS FREAKIN JOB!
Yeah, he got his **** kicked..

Good to TD with you Frog. Here is my list of 2012 post-season heroes:
1). Marco Scutaro- NLCS MVP
14 for 28 in the NLCS. Down 3-1 to the Cardinals, Scutaro was the spark-plug which ignited the Giants into the World Series for the second time in three seasons.
2). Delmon Young-ALCS MVP
1.186 OPS for the American League Champion Detroit Tigers. The Tigers steamrolled through American League Play-offs and Young was a major part of the offense for Detroit.
3). Verlander- Totally agree.
4). Barry Zito- The $175 million mistake...until he pitched a gem in Game 5 of the NLCS. He pitched against the Reds and allowed 2 runs into the 3rd inning when he was yanked. Zito responded with his heroic performance when the Giants were down 3-1 in games.
5). Phil Coke- 4 games, 5.2 innings, 0 Earned Runs, 2 saves for the Tigers.
Each one of these heroes helped the Giants and Tigers reach the World Series.....

Continuing to support my choices:
1). Scutaro had a 10 game post-season hitting streak. And he didn't just do it with the bat, he made quite a few outstanding plays at 2nd base. He was the rallying point for the Giants...their pre-game talk included the fact he had never been to the series and Hunter Pence repeated it in the clubhouse before every game.
2). Young helped to carry the offense when Cabrera and Fielder weren't hitting on a consistent basis.
3). Well, Verlander helped to get them to the series...he laid an egg in game 1, but this is to be continued.
4). Zito pitched a great game 1 for San Francisco. This is such a great story because he wasn't even on the Giants post-season roster for their last WS run.
5). Still waiting to see what he can do when he gets the chance.
