for sure. last team i can remember was 03. that team also had a reeeeeeally good regular season from start to finish. was in 1st place from game 1 to game 162. jose cruz jr's **** up and that play at home plate with jt and pudge haunted me for years especially coming off that 02 season.
this core of players is special tho. already proven they have what it takes.
I wish you didn't have such a good memory because I'm reliving all the feels from that series.
Remember being so pumped after Game 1 when Schmidt dominated. Then we got outplayed and I remember hating Jose Cruz Jr's guts after that **** up. If I'm not mistaken, I think Aurlia had a crucial error the next game. And all those replays of Ivan Rodriguez clutching that baseball after the final out of the series had me convinced this team was cursed.
P.S. **** Sidney Ponson's fat worthless ***.
Will never forget game 2. Met a buddy at the game so had to drive up myself. Was so pumped after game 1, and then Ponson got ripped. I remember being so pissed off sitting alone in my car after the game.....while the lot was jammed and we couldnt get out for over an hour. Then I hear Ponson being interviewed after the game and him saying "this loss isnt on me. I did my job."
I never wanted to reach through the radio and strangle anyone as bad as I wanted to strangle that piece of **** Ponson at this moment. I was already pissed at the world for the game and being stuck in the lot for over an hour. Then I hear this me first **** head say that.
Those were tough times for us giants fans.
