If you’ve read this blog for any
period of time you’d know that I am a local of the San Francisco Bay Area. Right now, every person that resides in and near the City by the Bay is beside themselves with pride for our San Francisco Giants. We are up 2 games in the best out of 7 in the 2012 World Series duel between the San Francisco Giants and the Detroit Tigers. First game was a shut out game. The Giants dominated the Tigers. Mr. Pablo Sandoval hit 3 home runs in one game. All that to sink in a bit… the man HIT 3 HOME RUNS in ONE GAME! Fourth person in history to ever do that. While watching these games I realized that while I may be transfixed in this World Series whirlwind other females out there may not. So this is my female guide to the 2012 World Series. You know, packed with stuff that the females out there want to know and may also score you some points with the baseball junkie in your life.
First thing I noticed is the obvious handsome genes that seem to swim in the Tiger’s pitching line up. Here’s the stats:
Justin Verlander 6’5 29 years old Lives in FL
Info: The man is a showstopper , hr already has the 3rd highest strike out total by a Tigers pitcher during a post season game and has won the AL Cy Young and MVP awards. He is said to be virtually unhittable. That’s debatable since Pablo hit 2 home runs off of him already. The man is a philanthropist and has been known to sponsor families and makes visits to pediatric hospitals. AAAAWWWW! Ok I know you ladies want to know if he’s married… well he’s not, but he has been linked to a cute blondie… Kate Upton. Sorry Ladies.
Doug Fister 6’8 28 years old Merced, CA
Info: The man automatically loses some points in my book because the Giants offered him a contract and he turned them down. Booo! He started this season as a Mariner, however was traded on July 30th. His career high is 13 strikeouts on September 5th against Cleveland. It is unknown whether or not he is married or single.
Drew Smyly 6’3 23 years old Lives in AR
Info: This awesome leftie rookie is fresh from the Minor Leagues, this guy is one to keep your eye on. The man has been connected to Erin Blatt… not sure if that’s still hot and ongoing.
Buster Posey 6’1 25 years old Lives in GA
Info: Other than looking like a Napoleon Dynamite extra, this man is an amazing ball player. The play making catcher was awarded the Golden Glove. He’s a strong hitter and one of the Giants’ best defensive players ever. Yes, he is married sorry ladies.
Tim Lincecum 5’11 28 years old Lives in WA
Info: The man is nicknamed “The Freak.” His freakish constancy is steadfast to become legendary. The man is wild and out of control. yet somehow still gets the strike. When the Giants won the 2010 World Series he was seen with a girlfriend, however it is rumored that they are no longer an item.
Pablo Sandoval 5’11 26 years old Lives in Venezuela
Info: Nicknamed “Panda” Who knew that a panda bears were so good in baseball. Coming off of an injury Pablo it seems like nothing can slow this man down. The man is SF’s best defensive player. As previously mentioned the man hit 3 home runs in one game. He is also been recognized for his work in the San Francisco community. He is single and has one very proud daughter.
A special thank you to Pablo Sandoval for making my favorite moment of the World Series thus far. It was the fifth inning and with the crack of the bat, the ball was launched into the air creating home run # 2 of the evening. However, the best part was that his “virtually unhittable” pitcher could only mouth “wow” as he watched the home run soar above his head. Sorry Mr. Verlander, but as a Giants fan and a Bay Area Gal that was an awesome moment. In case you missed it… watch it for yourself.
So there you have it ladies. A quick look at the hottest and noteworthy guys duking it out for the top spot at this 2012 World Series.
