Champions Treated Like Chumps

San Francisco Giants beat rival Dodgers on a walk-off by a third string catcher and there's no talk of it on ESPN?  Come'on Man!  Where is the love?

You'd think the Giants weren't defending Champions or something.  I'm not crying foul, I'm just curious as hell as to why the national media won't headline with the mighty feats of a defending champion. Is it just me or are the Giants just not that thrilling to the rest of the country?  I just don't get it.  Jealousy perhaps for winning the last two of three World Series?  Could be a conspiracy, I don't know.  What I do know is that the Giants have beaten the high-priced, media picked to win the NL West fodgers two nights in a row on walk off home runs by catchers and all I see headlining baseball news is L.A. mistakes and injuries.

That's okay.  We no need no stinkin' media to tell us how great we are.  We're Giants.  We play great baseball during the season and shut the mouths of media analysts come the postseason. And best of all, we're flying the Major League Championship flag in our beautiful ballpark by the bay as they speak.  So go on ESPN, act like you don't see black and orange as a heavyweight contender.  When the fall classic roles around, you'll have plenty of homework and catching up to do. Because the San Francisco Giants are gonna rain on your pick parade once again.
