Thoughts at the end of the 2014 World Series

The Giants won their third World Series title in the last half-decade last night. If that’s not a dynasty in this parity filled age of baseball, I don’t know what is. They rode Madison Bumgarner’s left arm to the championship just like they rode Tim Lincecum in 2010 and Matt Cain in 2012.

LINK TRAAAAAIIIIIINNNNNNNNN Happy birthday, Matt Cain! Even though he's injured, I'm sure he's on the team in spirit. And, uh, probably physically too. It's not like he's dead. (Also, happy birthday to Roberto Kelly and, for the heck of it, Darren Ford. Way to keep getting older, guys!) Posey and McCutchen were once teammates; Bochy discusses roster choices; Another great Pence momentLet's get geared up for baseball with Pavs' pre-series notes!
