  1. Path to the playoffs: NL West

    David Schoenfield

    The National League West had the worst out-of-division record in the majors in 2014 -- its teams were 32 games under .500 -- but the Giants won the World Series. So it was certainly baseball's best worst division. Or something. Attempting to match...

    David Schoenfield

    Bruce Bochy has won three World Series titles but hasn't won a Manager of the Year award since he was with the Padres back in 1996. Does he finally get honored this year? Does Buck Showalter bring home the AL award? Eric and I discuss....

  4. Ten great playoff wins for the Giants

    David Schoenfield

    On Friday, I wrote a piece titled "Giants: Baseball's imperfect dynasty." Some Giants fans thought I was taking some pot shots at the team and ignoring the bottom line of three World Series titles. Are the Giants a dynasty? According to the SportsNat...

  5. 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...

  6. Best World Series performance ever?

    David Schoenfield

    Here's my 10 best World Series performances by a pitcher, listed chronologically -- emphasis on body of work for the entire series, not just one great game (like Jack Morris). I'll let you debate whether Madison Bumgarner had the best one ever. It's ...

  7. 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...

  8. 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...

  10. 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 ...

  11. 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...

  14. 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 ...

  15. 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 ...

  16. 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...
