Cody Ross may have won the NLCS MVP, but Juan Uribe was the one who had game winning hits in each of the last two Giants wins. Has that sunk in yet? Has that absolutely blown your mind? Does reality seem to be nothing more than a dream coming from a brain resting on a laboratory shelf?
The Giants may have opened the season at 30-1 odds to win the World Series, but that seems like nothing compared to the odds that Juan Uribe would have two hits to put the Giants into the Fall Classic. The only thing more surprising would be if Uribe stabbed Pablo Sandoval in the leg with a pair of scissors while he was clipping articles in the clubhouse.
With the endless stretch of days before the World Series begins, it will give fans plenty of time to come to terms with the fact that the Giants not only made it the Classic with an offense stitched together with Gorilla Glue and beard dye, but that they did it with their most expensive player, Barry Zito, and biggest midseason acquisition, Jose Guillen watching from the sidelines.
Ruben Amado’s winter will now be filled with self-loathing as he realizes that this all may have been different had he just held onto Clifton Phifer Lee.
