Giants, Royals ready for wild World Series finish

SAN FRANCISCO — Buster Posey was annoyed. Playfully so. The Giants catcher wanted Madison Bumgarner to do more than barely break a smile after a brilliant pitching performance put San Francisco one win from another World Series title. No way, Buster. Because in this postseason full of stars and surprises, who knows? Heck, Bumgarner might still have more work to do. read more

Hunter Pence: Despite loss, Game 2 was still fun, plus Game 3 lineups

Hunter Pence, with Buster Posey and Brandon Belt, watched from the rail in the ninth inning of Game 2. Just got to the ballpark. It’s gorgeous here right now. Before we get started with interviews, I thought I’d show you another example of why Hunter Pence might be from another planet, he stood by his locker after the Giants’ 7-2 Game 2 loss and said the game was fun, even with Salvador Perez and Omar Infante hitting a double and homer to produce four sixth-inning runs. “It’s a battle,” Pence said. “Just to be part of it is a little of fun, seeing both teams, big players...

Where did Buster Posey's power go?

Buster Posey's power's not here, man. This was a good day: Your browser does not support iframes. The Giants were behind early because they were a bad team that was going to lose the Wild Card Game. Buster Posey helped them out of that. On the last day of the regular season, the Giants beat the Padres with the help of a Posey dinger. That was Sept. 28, which was 25 days and 12 games ago. It was the last extra-base hit Posey has had. It's not that Posey is hitting horribly. He has a .288 average with five runs batted in, though his Win Probably Added suggests that he's done more to hurt the...

Tim Flannery admits he might have to give Buster Posey the stop sign

Out by PlentyRoyals catcher Salvador Perez throws out Buster Posey trying to score from first base in the first inning of Game 1. Third-base coach Tim Flannery, proud of his aggressive approach sending runners home, said Wednesday he might have to treat Buster Posey more conservatively after the catcher was thrown out at home for the third time in the postseason in Game 1. “I’m probably going to have to hold him,” Flannery said. At the same time, he said, “If people want me to hold everybody, we have to keep hitting. It works both ways. They held a guy at third with nobody out and he...

Panda’s double, Pence’s HR give Giants 3-0 lead in Game 1

From Chronicle Staff Writer Susan Slusser at Kauffman Stadium It’s a sea of blue here in Kansas City, and the fans – 29 years after the last World Series game here – have been loud, loud, loud. The first inning has quieted things down, though: Pablo Sandoval smacked an RBI double off “Big Game James” Shields (Buster Posey was thrown out at the plate on the play after being sent in by third-base coach Tim Flannery). Then Hunter Pence belted a 3-2 fastball out to center, and just like that, after the top of the first, the Giants lead 3-0.

Is San Francisco Giants catcher Buster Posey destined to become the next "face of major league baseball" and is it even worth trying to figure out who will fill that recently vacated role?

Reluctantly, We Pick Giants Over Royals In Seven

Honestly, we really want the Kansas City Royals to win the World Series. If the Giants win, it will be three rings in five years—overshadowing the Red Sox achievement of three in ten years. But, if we look at the series with our heads and not our hearts, we have to conclude that San Francisco will prevail in seven games. There are many reasons for this: the vast experience advantage of the Giants; the incredible hot-streak of Madison Bumgarner; the 'clutchness' of players like Buster Posey, Hunter Pence and (perhaps future Carmine-Hoser) Pablo Sandoval. All of this will outweigh the Royals'...
