Mad’s World: Giants Ride Bumgarner To Title

It's a rare series when a starting pitcher truly has the biggest influence of any player on the field. But in the 2014 World Series, San Francisco Giants' left-hander Madison Bumgarner clearly was the difference between the Giants and the Kansas City Royals. His brilliance led the Giants to a Game Seven win over the Royals and a third World Championship for San Francisco in just five years.

Don't Count Out the Royals

The Giants lead the World Series 3 games to 2. In other words, the Royals have them right where they want them. The Royals don't know how to win easy; they don't blow out their opponents. They scratch and fight for every run, and let their pitching and defense do the rest. They are the "win-ninjas". Opponents aren't always sure what happens, but at the end of the game, the Royals prevail.

Royals Script A Game Three Win

Decent starting pitching + timely offense + good defense + an impenetrable bullpen = post-season wins.

We Believe That We Will Win

We Believe That We Will Win

The Royals aren't your typical World Series team. They win with speed, pitching, and defense. They win by playing with grit, determination, and playing the game the right way. Kansas City isn't your typical World Series city. It is not glamorous or boastful, nor is it arrogant and self-serving. The Royals may not be like your typical World Series team, but they are perfect for Kansas City.
