MLB SF Giant’s Year Ends with Surprises


The bloodthirsty San Francisco Giants’ http://sanfrancisco.giants.mlb.com/index.jsp?c_id=sf take to the World Series title was driven with a year of surprises, hyped-up player achievements, and interesting controversy in Major League Baseball (MLB). The Detroit Tigers pennant winner, Miguel Cabrera took ownership of the first Triple Crown sweep of the American League (AL) in several major offensive categories in 45 years by hitting 44 home runs with 139 runs batted in, while batting .330. SF Giant’s Matt Cain, Chicago White Sox’s Phillip Humber, and the Seattle Mariners’ Felix Hernandez managed to make their names on MLB’s record books with respective perfect games, and a remarkable triple having the overall 23 perfectos after Lee Richmond’s first recorded one in 1880 for Worcester. Giants exchanged blows in the elimination six times during the playoffs; surmounting a 2-0 deficit with three straight wins against Cincinnati Reds in the best-of-five Division Series.

Staid Issue

Giant’s ponderous stride to the top was unexpected. Seen as quite lucky for the team despite of SF’s outfielder, as Melky Cabrera was disqualified with a 50-game suspension last August for being positive for testosterone booster intake; while leading the majors with a .346 batting average. According to a May USA Today and Gallup poll, 45% of Americans identify themselves as baseball fans. That is low by recent standards, as an average of 49% of Americans have said they were fans of the sport since Gallup started tracking this measure in 1993; few of them are online players at online gaming portals. Online casino playing in the US increased exponentially, having 10 million Americans playing poker and casino games for real money, close to (a slim margin), with the UK having 1.9million.

Online casinos are online versions of land-based casinos. These attract avid casino players to bet on any casino games available on a website. Online casinos are divided into two groups: Web-based and downloadable client software. The web-based types are websites where players can enjoy their game without downloading the software. These websites require browsers plug-ins such as Macromedia Flash and Shockwave to support graphics and sounds. Downloadable versions, like the name suggests, require players to download the client’s software in order to play.

Wildin’ Out
Giants’ MVP high flying catcher, Buster Posey, experienced a wild game before winning the World Series for the second time in three seasons. The team aced six elimination games, three against the Cincinnati Reds and another three against the St. Louis Cardinals, before dusting off the competitive Detroit Tigers in the best-of-seven Fall Classic. The year closed with such anticipation of interesting prospects for the upcoming season.
