    Juan Perez is not a power hitter. Wade Davis went 84 innings this year and hasn't given up a single HR

    Perez just went 3inches from a homer to score 2 runs in the 8 th, most unlikely play in baseball? You gotta say after being in tears over Taveras he was really up for that at bat. Magnificent hit

    Devastating news.

    Had the potential to be one of the best.

    Was slowly getting into the rhythm of the Bigs. Only did this a few weeks ago:

    Gutted Joe Maddon won't be joining the Dodgers. Clubhouse needs a fresh perspective. Mattingly's been there too long to change the whole ethos.

    6-0 with one out in the second. Think we might be having a game 7.

    Yep, what an inning by them, lots of great at bats!

    Ventura has a comfortable lead to work with now. Bochy probably saves his best pitching (i.e. Bumgarner) until the morrow.

    I think he will have Hudson on a very short leash with Bumgarner in the bullpen. Could he go 7+ innings on 2 days rest? KC looking like strong favorites now.

    I watched the last WS Game 7 at 30,000 feet on a JetBlue plane. Only time I've ever been annoying that the plane was landing.

    Cannot let Hudson put Bumgardner in the same hole that Peavy put Petit last night.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,296 ✭✭✭Coeus


    Game 7, exciting times :)

    Have to agree the Royals have the advantage being at home. Bullpens will be key if the starters get chased...Bochy is saying Bumgarner is good for 50-60 pitches...Yost saying when he goes to the bullpen it will be for Herrera then Davis and go long with them. Go Royals!


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,073 ✭✭✭MoyVilla9


    Giants going to have to do more than that. Cannot let this game get to the bullpen.

    Would people have started Bumgardner?

    Think I start Hudson and hope I don't have to use him. He is on extremely short rest, risking injury if he pushes it and if he doesn't have it the loss could be on him. That would be a shame after his outstanding performances in games 1 & 5...

    I would have been very tempted, but obviously the arguments not to are very strong.

    After the first inning I don't think it will be long before we see him. Hudson had 5 straight balls at one stage.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,073 ✭✭✭MoyVilla9


    Hudson done. It was clear from the start he wasn't going to last.

    Would have thought he would have been able to hold it together, being a vet and a guy with plenty of post season experience. With him been chased this early, we are sure to see Bumgarner now...


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,073 ✭✭✭MoyVilla9


    Here he comes. Bumgarner either clinches MVP or blows this.


  • Registered Users Posts: 157 ✭✭BigFatGiant


    Giants world champs!!. Well what a performance by Madison Bumgarner. I was getting nervous after that triple with 1 out left but that man is cool as ice. Surely the best pitching performance over the course of a WS. Beast of a man.

    Unreal performance. He was literally the reason they won. Not the only reason but if you take him out of there they don't win, plain and simple! some stat of in the four games that they won, they got 108 outs and he got 66 of them or something crazy like that!


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,296 ✭✭✭Coeus


    Madison Bumgarner, WOW! I did not expect to wake up this morning and see SV beside his name in the box score. Most have been the easiest MVP to pick in a long time, he more or less won 3 of the Giants 4 games. Hope he shows no ill effects of his monumental postseason next year. Oh and congrats to the Giants!


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 13,687 ✭✭✭✭jack presley


    Great performance from Bumgarner. Crazy to think he's been one of the best pitchers in a WS ever and now has 3 rings and he's only 25!

    I tried watching it last night but dozed off around the 5th and when I woke up again they were interviewing him on the field so I missed his outing completely.

    How many days to opening day 2015?

    Yeah and that's the same with Posey as both were rookies in 2010. Crazy success that young!

    If I've calculated correctly - 188; April 6.

    My maths isn't great - I'm open to correction.

    My 6/1 on the Giants came in. Awesome by Baumgardner but overall, it was a great series. Hats off to KC for making it so competitive. Lets hope that all their young players can push on now for this experience and in this window they have before Cubs/Yanks/Dodgers/Sox ravage their roster, that they can win another pennant.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,073 ✭✭✭MoyVilla9


    Giants won it with a one-man rotation.

    The Chevy guy last night killed me. So unbelievably awkward.

    My wife got 16/1 on the Giants. Pity she only put a euro on it :p

    Landed in the US at 7.45 last night, straight to the pub! Tense game but Bumgardner deserved the victory for the way he pitched.

    Great series in fairness!

    Go back and watch it. A performance for the ages.

    That's the plan for this evening for sure

    By the way, A-Rod's suspension ended last night so technically he's back so let the circus recommence!

    I'll correct you so :) You included an extra month, it's only 158 days thankfully.

    Watching the re-run now, fantastic performance by Bumgarner. When I saw he got the save I assumed he'd pitched one inning. I saw somewhere that the Giants starters excluding Bumgarner had an ERA of 9.92!

    I think we need an off season thread to discuss such matters :)

    I watched the rerun earlier aswell, anyone else think Gordon should have been waved home in the 9th. I think he might have made it, at the very least it would have taken a very good defensive play to get him out...

    Lot of discussion on that today. I think the general consensus was that he would have been out by miles but due to the pressure of the moment, anything could have happened and there could have been a bad throw etc.
