Legen... wait for it... dary

They will one day write poems about the 6'5" 25-year-old from Hickory, NC who took over the World Series and put his team on his back. Yes, I will avoid the "work horse" references here dear reader.

Of course I am talking about Madison Bumgarner of the San Francisco Giants. Bumgarner the man child who talks like a hillbilly and throws a baseball like a god. Wow. He was impressive in this World Series. I wanted the Royals to win, but each year a man emerges that takes over the grand stage and does something special for his team. This year it was Bumgarner.

Of course the Royals were close. Man they were close. Alex Gordon caught a break and hit a drive and all Salvador Perez needed to do was lay off those sweet juicy high fastballs and drive the ball anywhere and the Royals would have tied the game. But that's easier said than done against Bumgarner.

I could list all his stats here, but you can go look them up yourself or tune into any sports outlet today and hear all about how awesome he was this postseason and especially the World Series.

I'll just let his awesomeness speak for itself!

Congrats to the Giants for winning the World Series... again. Only 112 days till Spring Training!!! Go Braves!

Yep, great series. Dominant pitching wins it all. I was kind of reminded of the 2001 series when Schilling and Johnson dominated when they took the mound, with Johnson making a relief appearance in game 7 (well, Byung-Hyun Kim did Arizona no favors). This time, though, it was one person doing all the heavy lifting. Amazing. Well, getting past Sandoval and Pence without giving up something was always, always a struggle. Jeez, Pence had himself quite a series.

I'm looking forward to next year. Pitchers and catchers report....
