Sure, we can talk about this: we’ve got all winter. 

...watching Bumgarner is like feeling an expertly administered epidural nip in between a couple of vertebrae and deliver bliss: it’s a gliding, almost eventless slide through the innings, with accumulating fly-ball outs and low-count K’s marking the passing scenery. It’s twilight sleep; an Ambien catnap; an evening voyage on a Watteau barge.

Seems like a no-brainer now but what a roll of the dice. Thank god Bochy didn't do a Matt Williams and go with his closer just because it was the 9th inning.

I feel sorry for Timmy. Hope he finds a home and has a good life. I can't imagine any other team picking up his contract but I also don't know that he'll be with the team next year. Maybe.
 
I don't think I've said the word SHIT so many times in such a short amount of time as when they kicked that ball around the outfield. Luckily I was already on the floor because the fall would have really hurt.

 
I kept thinking the same thing, except I was thinking the Marlins / Indians series when Hargrove yanked Nagy and put in Mesa.  By the book ... meh ...    Bochy is a real manager.  That is what I like about Francona and gives me hope for Cleveland.

Anyway, go Giants !    Bumgarner  {#Notworthy}   Yep a HOFer fer sure !

Yeah, this was a well-played game, and 1 run is not a comfortable feeling. I just had this huge cloud of dread the whole game, one little (or big) error and it would have evaporated.
 
Note: the double play that Panik started and was called safe but overturned... that was the game right there and I will never disagree with any Royals fan who thinks instant replay lost them a World Series. I intend to go look at replays tomorrow but I never saw anything that made me think they'd change that call to out.

Managed to pull up the game on mlb.com and find a radio stream to listen to.  They weren't in sync which was weird but it's more the sound of the broadcast than the content that was important, execpt when I had to shrink my browser to do work.  Good fun. Too bad someone had to lose.

This is interesting.

"Giants manager Bruce Bochy told reporters Wednesday evening that Madison Bumgarner could throw 50-60 pitches of relief in Game 7 of the World Series.

Bochy noted that it's Bumgarner's normal side session day and that the young left-hander typically throws around 50 pitches in those workouts. Tim Hudson will start Game 7 on Wednesday night at Kauffman Stadium, but Bochy could opt for a quick hook at the first sign of trouble. Bumgarner dominated the Royals in Games 1 and 5."

You want drama, you got it. It might all be over by the 2nd inning, but the leadup is great. The Giants are starting Tim Hudson. And he's capable of getting them to the 5th without much damage. Offense will have to NOT SWING AT THE FIRST GODDAM PITCH AFTER 3 STRAIGHT WALKS if they want to take advantage of all opportunities, the way they've been all series. But the magic of 2012 was putting Zito in, having Lincecum come in, and both did great. Bochy obviously has zero confidence in Lincecum at this point but what a wild card. I almost think they should start him, but leave Hudson out on the mound until they have to announce the lineups officially, then put Lincecum's name on the card. If he screws around and walks the first guy, yank him and go with Huddy. Just see what he has. If it's great, go with it. If it's not, well you've been playing short one pitcher all postseason, so what's different?

I like the Hudson/Lincecum idea.  But my judgment is no doubt influenced by the fact that Lincecum is my favorite player in the NL.  Jeremy Guthrie is not the second coming of Cy Young either.  The World Series' pressure can make a hero or goat out of players.

Posey certainly violated an axiom of baseball strategy swinging at pitch one with Ventura so wild.

KC wins.

Then we get the longest night of the year.
