The 2012 NLCS Champions San Francisco Giants - a True Team of Believers

The 2012 San Francisco Giants Game 7 NLCS win over the St. Louis Cardinals prove they are a true Team of Believers.

The 2012 San Francisco Giants thrilled their fans when they rallied back from the Cardinals 3 game lead to win the NLCS and play in their second World Series in just two years.

Call it angels in the outfield- catches made over their heads, bats that shattered as well as carried the ball deep into ATT Park and baseball gods that literally rained down on them, flooding the in-field, but the San Francisco Giants became the 12th team out of 77 that trailed in a best of seven series, to emerge triumphant. According to mlb.com they are only the fifth NL club to achieve this distinction.

The San Francisco 2012 Giants are a team fit for BATTLE. 

They were down 3 games against Cincinnati in the National League Division Series and came back to win it, in THEIR HOME FIELD. They allowed St. Louis to Lead 3-1 in the Championship series, battled back victorious in game 4 in their home field then, returned home to ATT Park to win games 5, 6 and 7.  There were 17 times this season, when they won 3 or more games in a row, the last two against The Cincinnati Reds and The St. Louis Cardinals.

They are true BELIEVERS in each other, They didn’t get down, they didn’t get discouraged, they just took each game as it came, focused on each win, and like a splash hit into McCovey Cove they just kept GOING….

They are a TEAM that is United that always play like a TEAM.  No Idols. They use the plural pronoun when talking to the media. They support each other when injuries occur and they prepare themselves for on-going changes; pitcher, position and substitutions. They are quick to compliment the strengths of fellow team mates and don’t place blame when errors occur.

They are SURVIVORS. Like when their fearless star closer goes out in April for the entire season, or when one of their top defensive and offensive players goes out with not one, but two separate broken hand bones and most ironically they come back swinging for the fences, when a league ban of their top slugger after getting an MVP award in the All-Star game goes out, for good.

And through it all, they are humble, appreciative and grateful to each other, to their coach, management and to their fans.

The Bay Area, California, and the rest of the nation should be proud of this team for what they represent, true winners in every sense of the word.

A blogger posted what we all know about the match-up between the Tigers and the Giants: “This series is going to come down to who wants it more, who has more heart, and who comes to play.”

The 2012 San Francisco Giants simply need to continue what has come naturally to them all year; BELIEVE IN THEIR TEAM.

Maybe someone who plays baseball should run for president, better manners, less fighting and bickering. Great story. The fans, the players, the Bay Area. We got it all. Go Giants!

The Giants are on a tremendous roll right now that can't be explained by statistics and odds. Their ability to pounce on opportunity, capitalize on wierd bounces, keep runs off the board and make dazzling play after play on the field, is combining for what looks like another World Championship. Team, Survivors, Believers-they're defining those words with their play-Go Giants!
