For the third time in the last five years, the San Francisco Giants are World Series Champions!
Riding the superhero left arm of Madison Bumgarner, the Giants squeezed out a 3-2 win in game 7 of the World Series to down the Kansas City Royals.
Willie, Chad and Eric record our longest podcast of the year to discuss this memorable World Series; the heroes, the almost-goats, and what it took to fuel a remarkable run that has placed the black and orange in “dynasty” status.
Even if you have to listen to it in two parts, sit back, relax, and bask in the glow of three Commissioner’s trophies!
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.
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.
Lincecum in pen? Rotation: Zito, Bum, Vogey, Cain.

@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

We Should Hate This Guy
Chad: Most of the national media, who continually put the Giants as the underdog.
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
