The San Francisco Giants sure look like a team on a mission, as they are now 2 wins away from their second World Series title in three years.
And they remind me of two other clubs from the very recent past: the 2004 and 2007 Red Sox.
Think about it. The Giants and those Sox teams were up against the wall with no wiggle room in the League Championship Series, and they all went on winning streaks (of five or more games). These teams have done it with timely hitting and absolutely lights out pitching.
Good luck to the Giants. I wouldn't be surprised if they run the table here.
And speaking of the 2004 Red Sox. It was eight years ago today that the title was secured for the first time in 86 years.
The great Al Bundy once said that his scoring four touchdowns in one game was "the greatest moment in all of sports history." Everyone has a different definition for that special moment.
For me, this moment will live for eternity. Enjoy, everyone. And thanks always, 2004 Red Sox:
