After the game, they would ask Buster Posey if the conditions were tough.
He answered something like, "No...we're used to it."
But Randal Grichuk, a rookie starting in right for the first time at AT&T Park - that kid got a dose of swirling wind hell at the worst possible time.
For him, at least.
With the bases loaded with Giants, Travis Ishikawa hit a ball that looked like it was going out, but the wind batted it around so much that... it didn't look like Grichuk even saw it til it hit the ground.
A perfect storm.
The ball appeared to hit one of those big gates out there, only a couple feet off the ground, then bounced over to center.
And in the meantime all those guys on base came around and touched home.
And then you saw the end with the wild throw and you're glad you're not Randy Choate.
Surely somewhere someone noticed that if you switch out a "k" for the "t" in his name, you get a whole new meaning.
And Kansas City is so in the World Series with win #3 to #0 for the O's.
Lastly, did you see this little tidbit about the World Series hats in the Cubs' locker room?
There are rumors that Eric Karros has all kinds of video from 2003.
I'd love to see it.
