This year’s World Series was an absolute joke. Never have I seen such a conglomeration of pathetic swings, shoddy pitching and ball dropping in professional baseball. The Rangers looked like they were swatting purses. Vladdy struck out more time in the post-season than in the regular seasons, and Josh Hamilton appeared to be swinging a lead stick. Finally, on the other side Pat Burrell’s 9 K’s in 11 at-bats was hideous. At a time when Baseball’s fan base is slowly shrinking, disasters such as these are not helping to sell the game.
I will concede to the fact the Giant’s pitching was solid, though there were no performances which resurrected memories of Andy Petite or pre-2010 WS Cliff Lee esc performances. It was only solid, and really should not have generated as many luck-luster swings as they did. This has all lead me to appoint this the WORST WORLD SERIES in recent memory. Nothing about this World Series was memorable, nothing about this World Series was note worthy, and nothing in this World Series should be remembered.
