The Giants Set Out To Shock The World And They Did Just That

The Giants Set Out to Shock the World and They Did Just That

There is a new World Series Champion in Major League Baseball and it’s the San Francisco Giants. Despite sneaking into the playoffs and very few people giving them a chance, the San Francisco Giants captured the first ever World Series in franchise history (or at least since they moved to San Francisco). While very few expected it, there is no denying that the Giants earned this win and they were the best team throughout the playoffs.The Giants pitching staff led by youngsters Tim Lincecum, Madison Bumgarner, and Matt Cain along with a bullpen led by Brian Wilson completely shut down the best offense in baseball.

Bruce Bochy made all the right decisions, Edgar Renteria came up with clutch hit after clutch hit, and the Giants lineup that was filled with castoffs like Aubrey Huff and Cody Ross outslugged the Rangers lineup which was filled with All Star caliber players. The Giants popped the champagne last night and can now be called something that nobody else in San Francisco can be called: World Series Champions.Madison Bumgarner, Cody Ross, and Bruce Bochy joined Into the Night with Tony Bruno on Fox Sports Radio to talk about winning the World Series.

Whether or not it has hit him yet that they won the World Series

“I think somewhat, but I’m sure when we’re sitting at home in a few weeks that it’s really gonna sink in and realize all we did. Right now we’re having a great time.”

On whether or not they would’ve rather clinched at home:

“We wanted to get it over with as quick as we can. We’re fortunate we were able to do it. I feel blessed to be here. This is an amazing thing.”

On Tim Lincecum outdueling Cliff Lee:

“I was pulling for him as hard as I could. He was absolutely great out there. He’s pitched as good as anybody this year and it’s been a lot of fun being a teammate with him.”

On the makeup of the roster:

“Yeah. Absolutely. We don’t have many superstars, if we even have any. Obviously with Lincecum with a couple of Cy Youngs and Cain, but other than that very few guys that if you’re walking down the road in the middle of Kansas if anybody would recognize them. That’s the kind of team we are. We came together, we put our egos aside, a lot of guys here that are used to playing every single day and we said you know what we have one goal in mind and that’s to go out and win. I can’t be happier for our coaching staff, the front office, and the whole San Francisco Giants organization, we all did it together.”

On being released and landing with San Francisco:

“I didn’t know the whole situation with waiver deal. I knew the Marlins had put me on waivers, but I didn’t know who was going to claim me. Once I got word that the Giants claimed me I looked at the roster and said well they don’t really have a whole lot of room for me so there’s no way they’re gonna be able to work out a deal and I’m sure they’re trying to block me. Then I thought to myself well there’s no way that the Marlins would let me go, but thankfully they did. I couldn’t be happier. It’s been an incredible experience for me. It’s crazy how this game works. I’m just happy to be a part of it and be a San Francisco Giant.”

On the team aspect of the win:

“We’ve talked about this so many times. We got contribution from everybody. It’s been a crazy ride, a wild ride, anything you can describe because of how everybody bought into what we were doing and how they how they just grew into a group that wanted to do this.”

On his team being called misfits:

“They had a good time with it and they probably took it personal. When we went into a series and we were underdogs they took that personal and we were castoffs or misfits. I kinda nicknamed them the dirty dozen. They had fun with it. I think it helped motivate them and had them thinking lets shock the world and let’s show everybody how good we are.”
