The crowds have stopped cheering on Market Street and have dispersed from City Hall. The Champions of the World are putting on their third Championship ring in five years. For Madison Bumgarner, Jockey has distributed thousands of their new MadBum shorts to the crowd. To the victors go underwear and another ring.
Arguably, the San Francisco Giants have the best pitching staff on the planet. Hitting is for show. Pitching is for the dough and Championship rings.
It is a good thing for the owner and management of the Milwaukee Brewers to note. Used first basemen from Toronto will not fill the seats at playoff time. It takes pitching and a lot more pitching than exercising the contract for Vonnie. It will take better pitching than they have now.
The crowds haven’t cheered on Wisconsin Avenue since 1957.
