Giants Silence Braves Fans, Finally ….Posted: October 12, 2010
National League teams were reduced to the final 2 last night as fans endured the
last NL 2010 post season game to be ridiculed by TBS, the NLCS and World Series
have the pleasure of Fox and their hired guns attempting a leucotomy on
the viewing public.
It was the turn of the San Francisco Giants to celebrate the
continuance of their post season. I realize to get to the LCS round for both AL
and NL teams is a major accomplishment, but lets face it there is no title to go
with it. I can understand being champions of your respective divisions, it’s a
title, but making it to the LCS has no title, so why the champagne celebrations.
I don’t dispute they should have some celebratory hugs and back slapping on the
field, even in the locker room, but champagne soaking celebrations, I for one
think they should hold those for the winners of the LCS round.
Last night was the final game of Bobby Cox’s career and like it
or not he finished his career the way he has performed it, being in the dug out
of an also ran team. Some may think this is harsh, but during Cox’s reign over
the Braves, he had one of the finest pitching staffs in baseball, and yet he has
1 WS title with a lot of Eastern Division titles.
He does still hold the title of the most ejections by a manager,
which may be one title that no one beats, since managers don’t seem to stick
around long enough these days. Like he’s done so many times Bobby Cox sat in the
dugout watching his team throw it all away….
….when it was all said and done, he just rose from his chair,
turned around and disappeared into the tunnel, it was a short while afterwards
someone decided that it wasn’t cool for the Giants to be celebrating on Bobby
Cox’s last stand, so Bobby was ushered out of the tunnel to the field which
immediately stopped the on field celebrations. Cox then gave a wave to the
crowd, seemed to have no acknowledgement to the Giants, turned tail and
….disappeared into the shadows. Maybe now Cox has gone the
Braves will bring back ‘Chief Noc-A-Homa’.
Tonight we have a do or die match as the Texas Rangers square
off against the Tampa Bay Rays at the Trop. in St. Petersburg, I am sure now
that they have managed to uncover some of the lost seats at the Trop it should
be a record crowd tonight. You know I am sure somewhere those lost seats, there
was a woman to blame, oh wait that was a shaker of salt.
