  1. Giants: Baseball's imperfect dynasty

    David Schoenfield

    Maybe the most fascinating aspect of the latest title run for the San Francisco Giants is how little production they received in the postseason from some of their highest-paid players: Matt Cain, the team's top-paid player at $20.83 million thi...

  2. Bumgarner's legend grows: Giants win it all

    David Schoenfield

    We got our classic Game 7. We got a heroic performance for the ages. It was the postseason of Madison Bumgarner, it was the World Series of Madison Bumgarner and it was his relief performance in Game 7 -- five scoreless innings -- that clinched the t...

  3. Joe Panik with the play of the Series

    David Schoenfield

    It's been a wild three innings in Game 7 as both teams scored two runs in the second and the Giants knocked Tim Hudson from the box -- the first Game 7 starter since Bob Turley in 1960 to not last at least two innings. With Jeremy Affeldt on in re...

  5. Random thoughts before Game 7

    David Schoenfield

    Let's make it a game to remember . . . I wrote about the pitching matchup between Tim Hudson and Jeremy Guthrie. Considering both teams have good and rested bullpens, I don't expect either pitcher to go more than five innings, even if they're ...

  6. Matchup: Hudson versus Guthrie

    David Schoenfield

    So here we are. Game 7. It hasn't happened often enough in recent years -- just twice since that classic game in 2001, when the Diamondbacks rallied in the bottom of the ninth off the invincible Mariano Rivera and solidified the legends of Curt Schil...

  7. Baseball gods order up a Game 7

    David Schoenfield

    The bottom of the second inning of Game 6 lasted 33 minutes and 41 pitches and somewhere between an eternity if you're a San Francisco Giants fan and perfection if you're a Kansas City Royals fan. In this World Series that has been more entertaining ...

  8. Random thoughts before Game 6

    David Schoenfield

    I'll be honest: I'm rooting for the Royals. The first games I remember watching as a kid were the 1976 playoffs between the Yankees and Royals. Even then, although the Yankees had just returned from a 12-year postseason absence, I knew they were the ...

  9. Matchup: Peavy versus Ventura

    David Schoenfield

    We've had just one seven-game World Series out of the previous 11 -- that was in 2011, when the Cardinals beat the Rangers in that classic Game 6 and then won Game 7 -- so here's hoping this one goes the distance. Jake Peavy and Yordano Ventura sq...

  10. Some World Series thoughts on the off day

    David Schoenfield

    From 30,000 feet somewhere between San Francisco and Kansas City ... Heard from a couple readers on Twitter reminding me of a blog I wrote back in July that listed the top 10 pitchers in baseball ... and did not include Madison Bumgarner. Well,...

  11. Bumgarner's place in World Series history

    David Schoenfield

    Obviously, everybody wrote about Madison Bumgarner after his dominant Game 5 performance -- following up on his dominant postseason run. Jayson Stark: With Bumgarner, we have come to realize now that this isn't just about one night, even on a ni...

  12. We're living in Madison Bumgarner's world

    David Schoenfield

    Madison Bumgarner was awesome. James Shields deserved better. The San Francisco Giants tacked on some late insurance runs off the vaunted Kansas City Royals bullpen to win 5-0. We go back to Kansas City, Missouri, with the Giants one win away from a ...

  13. Random thoughts before Game 5

    David Schoenfield

    After losing Game 4, Royals manager Ned Yost uttered what has to be the quote of the World Series: "Oh, man, somewhwere inside of me, secretly, I had hoped that it would go seven games for the excitement and the thrill of it." I mean, I appreciate...

    David Schoenfield

    The season is down to a best-of-three scenario, and we get our first pitching rematch of the World Series with James Shields going up against Madison Bumgarner. The Giants will be the favorite in Game 5 considering Shields hasn't pitched well in the ...

  15. Giants get to K.C. bullpen (no, not that part)

    David Schoenfield

    SAN FRANCISCO -- Wait, the final score was 11-4? Yes, the scoreboard reads blowout but it was a fascinating contest as the Giants tied the World Series with the win. Trust me. Five key moments from AT&T Park: 1. The Panda delivers in the sixth inn...

  16. Random thoughts before Game 4

    David Schoenfield

    Like Games 2 and 3, this one could be all about the sixth inning. Neither Jason Vargas nor Ryan Vogelsong should be expected to pitch deep into the game, and assuming they survive through five frames, the sixth has become the vital inning of this ser...
