The San Francisco Giants won the 2010 World Series thanks to great pitching performances from Tim Lincecum(notes), Matt Cain(notes) and Brian Wilson(notes).

And they got timely offensive contributions from the likes of rookie Buster Posey(notes), Aubrey Huff(notes) and Juan Uribe(notes). You remember those guys. How could anyone forget?

And what about Robin O'Connor, a payroll department manager? There's no way the Giants get past the Philadelphia Phillies in the NLCS without her.

No wonder the Giants have been such curmudgeons lately. The NL West is slipping away, they don't have any explanations as to why

Sure they do. They have no offense and they keep wasting good pitching.

Wow! She get $80,000 per year to send player their paychecks? What a country. And that, somehow, wasn't enough?

The prosecutor is right. She is the dumb one.

This Robin O'Connor must be a liberal Democrat. After all, all she was trying to do was to redistribute wealth from the greedy players on her payroll to poor little Robin.

And how asleep at the switch were the victimized athletes and their agents for their failure to notice the discrepancies in their accounts caused by her larceny?

Separately, can someone explain why this is a federal, and not a state, offense?

True, but her daddy still calls her “baby”.
