If you remember 1989 and you also happen to be an A’s fan, you’re smiling right now. Earthquake, shmearthquake, the A’s slapped and pantsed the Giants, took their lunch money and sped off in a souped up Cadillac, leaving Will Clark and the rest in a cloud of dust and Candlestick Park hot dog wrappers.
If you remember 1989 and you also happen to be a Giants fan, you’re probably closing your eyes, sticking your fingers in your ears and chanting “2010! 2010! Ross is Boss! Ross is Boss!”
The A’s were the hottest team in all of baseball this season while the weather was at its hottest this summer (in every other part of the country besides the West Coast, anyway). The Giants stayed above .500 all season, then Melky Cabrera was suspended and they took off.
The A’s hit tons of home runs, the Giants started hitting home runs about a week ago. Neither team has a famous closer, and both teams have good rotations … although the A’s have been decimated by injuries and suspensions in that department and the Giants’ two-time Cy Young Award winner was one of the worst starters in baseball among guys who didn’t miss any time.
