Episode 40: The MadBum Episode and WORLD FREAKIN’ SERIES Preview

Pence’s magical triple double in Game 7

Willie, Ben and Chad get together for a NLCS review that just blew everyone’s pants off, followed by questioning the meaning of life and how the frick the Giants pulled off 6 consecutive elimination game wins. Oh yeah, we talk a little World Series Preview and about that Verlander guy…he’s pretty good.

Talking Points

  • Um, how’d that happen?! 3 consecutive wins vs Cin, and 3 consecutive wins vs STL, first team to win 6 consecutive elimination games to reach WS

The Week In Review

  • Giants won their 5th consecutive NLCS (62, 89, 02, 10, 12)
  • Hunter Pence’s magical triple-double
  • Where were you during NLCS Games 5-7?

The BIG Question

  • Can the Giants hit Verlander?
  • Will Bumgarner do well, if not, Giants could be down 2-0.

ArmChair Manager

  • Lincecum in pen? Rotation: Zito, Bum, Vogey, Cain.

Tweet At Me, Bruh

  • @hankschulman: Seriously, folks who still insist Gs should add Melky now need to study his departure and what the team has done since, or just stop talking

Our New Favorite Guy

  • Zito: Chad
  • Scutaro: Willie

We Should Hate This Guy

Why We Will Win It All

  • Beat Verlander like Lee and Halladay in 2010, and in the previous 3 World Series that featured an LCS that swept vs a team that won in 7, the team that went 7 won all 3 times. LA vs Oak 1988, Cards vs Tigers ’06, Red Sox v Rockies ’07
  • Sloppy Joes at Zeke’s cannot lose
