maybe so... I know Olvero street will be quiet....
Olivera Street. Get it straight.
In the meantime, a fellow Bay Area homeboy has a vision:
skulls, don't sweat it, maybe LA's NFL team will go all the way this year....
Congrats to the Giants fans.
And congrats to the Giants for finally breaking the 7th game jinx.
My prediction: Giants in 2016
Wow. Rooting for KC just because I'm an AL guy but a great Giants performance. I never thought Bumgarner could pitch that well on 3 days. Shades of Mickey Lolich.
Like I said: Wow. Good game.
Bumgarner is good, very good, but don't forget what Lew Burdette did with Milwaukee in '57.
(Yes the World Series was being played way back then. )
My son and I were almost in tears when Affelt was talking after the game about coming up in KC and just about quitting baseball. He's five and just loves the game. It's the first time we've sweated out a postseason that he'll actually remember. I'm going to hold on to this memory for a long, long time.
So I look up Lew Burdette and come across this line that made me laugh:
"Burdette was often rumored as having thrown spitballs, leading New York Times sportswriter Red Smith to write, "There should be 3 pitching statistics for Burdette: Wins, Losses, and Relative Humidity.""
Just in case you guys didn't know this, the official scorers ended up giving Bumgarner a save instead of a win.
So Mr. Burdette still may be the only modern era pitcher with three wins in a series. Two of them where complete game shutouts.
Bumgarner is very good though. I wouldn't want to stand in against him. Not now. Not 40 years ago.
Randy Johnson did it in 2001.
Bob Gibson and Denny McLain both did it in the 1960's.
Details, details, details...
Lew Burdette is still my favorite, though!
Pay the Panda
Wow! What a series. Long time Gyro fan. Congrats to the Royals organization and fans. Class all around.
I was questioning that win right after the game. Thought it would be a save
I'm an original Royals fan. Been rooting for the Royals since 1969. Grew up in Omaha home of their AAA team. It was a tough night last night but my hats off to the Giants and their organization. First class all the way.
MadBum was phenomenal with the high fastball all night long. My boys could not lay off that pitch and couldn't catch up to it.
So which is it? Lew or Lou? Looks like they spelled it different everywhere he went. His signature even is spelled "Lou" on a card or two.
Love Lew Burdette (the second best pitcher on that staff)...
the thing I just thought of... The giants now have 7 mlb championships... and the dodgers.. just 6.
