    Joe Panik -- Just another rookie stud who made the play of the World Series

    Our one "on his way to Cooperstown" stud who had a horrible World Series.

    One of the greatest hitters in World Series history - Pablo Sandoval with the motivational speaker Hunter Pence
    [​IMG]

    And the greatest pitcher in World Series history, 25 year old Madison Bumgarner
    [​IMG]
    Scary thing is, you could multiply Madison's ERA by 10 and he'd still be in the discussion. 4 starts, 4 wins. 36 innings pitched. 1 run given up. 5 inning save in a game 7 after pitching a complete game shutout 3 days prior.

    Lots of discussion about "dynasty". I don't think they are.... yet. But this is a good start. The crazy thing to me is, Lincecum was the main reason we won in 2010. Cain won every series clincher in 2012. This year it was all Bumgarner. A different closer for every team too. Lastly, the hitters -- Pablo barely played on the 2010 team in the playoffs. He was MVP in 2012 and broke the record for most hits in a WS this year. Needless to say, Pablo is gonna break the bank this year. No idea who it'll be, but I hope he stays.

    It's been 2 days since the Giants won the World Series. We've got a long way to go to catch the 9,526 days since the Dodgers won it.

    Don't follow baseball much but I assume Wiley Wiggins is still on the team?

    ^ he is. Only pitched 1 2/3 innings. Threw a no-no during the regular season, but was very inconsistent. Best days are behind him. Signed for next year. Hope he's competitive.

    Traded for Leake.

    4 in 6 ??? I hope so.

    Also, Duffy is making a play for ROY. Don't sleep on him. Who woulda thought a no-name rookie would have made everyone forget Pablo Sandoval?

    I know we have at least one Giants fan (John) but I'm curious to something from their fan perspective.

    What did you guys think of the MadBum and Puig dustup? I personally thought it was extremely stupid of Bum to do it and instigate it. The Giants have been flailing and are going the wrong way out of the playoffs. They know they need to win with teams below them winning. Bum was dealing on the Dodgers and hadn't tossed 100 pitches yet. Puig hits a chopper runs it out and Bum basically stares at him until he (Puig) turns around and sees the stare down. I know they don't like each other and they may one day get into the baseball shoving match BUT what was Bum trying to do there? He may have cost the Giants a playoff spot. Maybe not they are the giants. Anyway, this isn't a troll question just curious what ya'll thought. I thought it was extremely stupid on his part.

    Just saw this @puffyusaf#2

    Madbum is very competitive, as I'm sure you know. Let his emotions get the best of him. Based on after game quotes, Bochey didn't like it and that's why he was taken out.

    Almost cost us the playoffs. Got in on day 162. Typical Giants. I watched every game this year. They're gonna give me a heart attack.

    Yea I was pretty sure that one game cost them the playoff spot. I didn't get why he did it especially with the bullpen issues. Luckily my Dodgers laid a huge fricken egg and foolishly let them in. Like I said in the question SF has the pedigree and the know how to win it all. Today showed again, those boys can win in the playoffs.

    I'm sorry @John3:16 . I know you're a Giants fan. Ugly way to lose yesterday.

    I spent all season complaining about the Dodgers' approach and how the Giants went out and got the starting pitchers. I guess I was half wrong. The Giants needed a bullpen more than starters. I still think the Dodgers should have spent on Cueto though.

    Any how. See you guys next year.

    I'm seriously mourning this loss. A good friend is a Cubs fan and after the first hit in the 9th, I texted him and said congrats. I saw this too many times during the season to believe they'd win. We had almost 40 blown saves during the season. A playoff team with 40 blown saves !!!!!

    We need a closer in the worst way. I don't care how much they spend for one. A bat in the lineup wouldn't hurt either. When Brandon Belt leads your team in HRs with 17, you've got issues.

    I can't complain about the starting pitchers or the play of Conor Gillespie, who was amazing in the playoffs.

    Going forward, we have a lot of players at the end of their contracts that I never want to see back in SF, so we should have money to spend.
