In usual celebratory fashion the president poked fun at the players, shed hope for his team (the Chicago White Sox) and commended the giants team for their championship season.
"Whenever the Giants make the playoffs... they'll probably win it", said the president.
Commenting on what could be defined as the team's winning strategy, the president said, "They've got that even-year magic, they've got that championship experience."
The president even suggested he was good luck for them.
The team imparted gifts upon the president, among them a team-autographed jersey, baseball, and new this year - a team autographed base with the president's name and date secured along the side.
