In Uncategorized by myles171 Comments

  In what was arguably the greatest pitching duel of the past decade, the Giants (led by ubermensch Madison Bumgarner) downed the Mets 3-0 on a Conor Gillaspie HR (as we all saw coming). As a result, the Giants will take their Heart of Gold improbability drive to the 2016 World Series World Tour to Chicago. Who the hell are …
