The Bay Area is going nuts and is partially in shock as Tim Lincecum will take the mound with a chance to not only win the Pennant, but set up the rotation while the Rangers and Yankees will battle deep into the weekend.
You would think that the whole Bay Area, which hasn’t seen a pro champion since the 49ers beat the Chargers in the 1995 Super Bowl, would be thrilled.
Ahhh… you forget the power of venom.
Lest we forget the Oakland A’s fans. And when you think A’s fans, you SHOULD be thinking of Don Marquez, friend to Sully Baseball, author of the wonderful book Generation A’s Fans and part of a gigantic family of rabid Oakland fans.
And one thing Don and his family seem to love is the fact that the World Series title count in the Bay Area is A’s 4 and Giants 0.
(4 to 0 was also the result when the A’s and Giants squared off in the 1989 World Series.)
