I’m skeptical for a lot of reasons, but manager Bruce Bochy said in the interview room today that he and the staff have talked about starting Madison Bumgarner on three days’ rest in Game 4, instead of Ryan Vogelsong, if the Giants lose Game 3 tonight. That would allow Bumgarner to pitch Game 7 as well, on short rest, if needed. “Well, sure, we talked about it,” Bochy said. “We discuss everything, our options.” But then, Bochy reiterated what he told beat writers the other day, offering hints that...

“There is no bigger stage. But he’s just Madison Bumgarner.” And he’s the last ace standing.

“There is no bigger stage. But he’s just Madison Bumgarner.” And he’s the last ace standing.
