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

The downfall of the ace this postseason was swift and nearly universal. The last image of Clayton Kershaw was a left-hander crouching on the Busch Stadium mound, hands on his knees as he watched his season wash away. Stephen Strasburg… Continue Reading →

Giants pounce on Shields, Royals, take Game 1 of World Series 7-1

Giants take Game 1 of World Series, 7-1

The Giants were up by three runs before the Royals came to the plate, and Madison Bumgarner was strong. The Giants defeated the Royals in Game 1 of the 2014 World Series, winning 7-1 in a game that never seemed that close. Madison Bumgarner was excellent, throwing seven solid innings and picking up the win. He did allow his first run in the World Series, though. Maybe something's up with him. There will be time to worry about that later. Until then, consider this: Madison Bumgarner is the all-time career leader in postseason wins for the Giants. That's New York and San Francisco. He...

Democratic offense, Bumgarner lead SF Giants to Series-opening win

Kansas City, Mo. – In the first World Series game at Kauffman Stadium in 29 years, the Royals learned a hard lesson that the Pirates and Cardinals understand all too completely: Give Madison Bumgarner an early lead on the road in this postseason, and it’s over. Pablo Sandoval doubled home a run and Hunter Pence hit a two-run homer against James Shields in the first inning of the Giants’ 7-1 victory over the Royals, who lost for the first time this postseason at the hands of Madison Bumgarner. Bumgarner extended his record postseason road shutout streak to 32 2/3 innings before Salvador...

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'...

San Francisco Giants Link Dump, 10/20

I link an Antichrist, I dump an anarchist So when is there more baseball? I hope it's not never. Is Buster Posey the next Derek Jeter?This is just one of many articles on Giants players in both national and local media outlets. Pavs wrote about Hunter Pence, Carl Steward wrote about Brandon Crawford, noted heartthrob Jeff Sullivan wrote about Madison Bumgarner, The Sporting News wrote about Tim Lincecum, Tim Hudson, and Matt Cain, ESPN had an article about Bruce Bochy, and there were many, many more. I find this strange, since, if I remember this summer right, the Giants are the worst...
