obsessivegiantscompulsive is my blog.

I love a healthy, constructive debate about my favorite team, but respect that everyone has their own opinion.

I Love You Mom and Dad

Live well, Laugh often, Love much

"The objective is that World Series ring" - Lincecum

"Attempting [to match Maddux and Johnson's 4 straight Cy's] just comes back to being a student of the game and never settling. A lot of guys can just sit on things they did. I could have easily sat on things I did last year and bounce off it. I just wanted to become better." - Lincecum

"A lot of swearing, a lot of screaming – and a lot of alcohol." - Timmeh, about the playoffs

Posey is relaxed in the playoffs "because it's fun."

"Woo hoo!" - Tim "The Kid" Lincecum

"Every victory is tasty, but this one was real delicious." - Brian "Fear the Beard" Wilson

"We deserve this" Sabean
"This is stupid" - Cain after Perfecto
"You better pitch better if you want to win." - Bumgarner (after 2-1 win over Kershaw)
"It was a backfoot slider. I don’t know how I hit it." Panda Power - 3-run HR off foul pole
"You've got to take advantage of each moment you have." Buster
"You know what? We feel good," Posey said.
"Play for each other not yourself. Win each moment. Win each inning." Pence
"We will see you tomorrow" Hunter
"Let's get back to work and make another run at it" Posey
"Let's bring back a ring and have another parade." Cain
"Here, I'm going to keep battling for you. You keep battling for me." - Cain
"I want to be a champion once again," Pagan said. "And if it’s possible, for four more years."
Belt: "That's why we love each other" because they pick each other up
"You’re better, you’re more talented than the 2012 team that won the World Series." - Bochy about 2014 Giants
"I don’t care about the contract. I care about my team. I care about this year, to try to win a championship." - Panda
"You can talk about velocity all you want but it’s location that can hurt me the most." - Vogelsong
"Nobody gave us a chance to win in 2010 and 2012. Everyone thought we'd get beat in the division. We don't care if we don't get talked about. We just care about what we have to do to win."- Bumgarner
"Everybody comes here happy to be here," Morse said. "Nobody ever has a bad attitude. Everybody wants one goal, and that's to win tonight. Especially these guys who have won before. They know what it takes to win, and they want to win again. To me, it's the perfect balance of having fun and having success."
"[Blanco] He knows your (performance) will dictate how much you play." - Bochy
"This team has got some personality," Pence said. "It’s just one of those things we think is fun. We think it’s cool."
"Winning is contagious," Morse said. "And we love to win."
"I don’t think you can ever be too happy playing baseball." - Pence
