Here is the opening to my column about the Giants winning Game 3:
Excuse me for feeling confused. I attended Game 3 of the World Series Saturday night in Detroit, but I could have sworn it was Game 2 in San Francisco. I have the feeling I’ve seen all this before. You know, the Giants winning 2-0 and all that.
The games, or the game — help me here — go like this. The Giants pitch great. In this case, Ryan Vogelsong becomes a late-in-life Don Drysdale and makes the Detroit Tigers look like chumps, just like Barry Zito and Madison Bumgarner did. And Tim Lincecum comes in and looks like the superstar he used to be, and may be again. And the Giants’ pitching is the story of this, so far, lopsided series. Both Will Clark and Ron Wotus called Giants pitching “nails,” which, I assume, is a good thing. The Giants certainly have been sticking nails in the Tigers’ claws.
