Yes, the Giants are a dynasty

Out of the numerous somewhat undermining narratives that a World Series will produce, perhaps the biggest one from this particular Fall Classic is whether or not the San Francisco Giants are now a dynasty having won three titles in the last five seasons. The answer is yes. I almost want to end the article right […]

World Champion Giants

End of season post-mortem: San Francisco Giants

For the third time in five years, the San Francisco Giants raised the World Series trophy in spite of virtually nobody thinking they would.

Royals

End of season post-mortem: Kansas City Royals

The Royals won the AL pennant, lost in Game 7 of the World Series and are apparently made of magic. What else do you really need to know? Preseason Prediction: Realistically, the Royals should be neither appreciably better nor appreciably worse. On one hand, the offense should be more efficient with Aoki and Infante giving them an […]

The 11 biggest homers of the 2014 Postseason

The 2014 season is now in the rear-view mirror following a phenomenal Postseason. This October, we saw close games and we saw blowouts.

Every time the MLB Postseason rolls along, people start talking about ways to improve it (as if it really needs to be tweaked anymore). But the amount of teams to make the Postseason has increased by 150% over the last 20 years, and if that pace holds (which I doubt it will), we’re looking at […]

Joe Maddon

Joe Maddon and the Chicago Cubs

Rarely does the sudden availability of a manager set off the type of frenzy than Joe Maddon opting out of his contract with the Tampa Bay Rays did on Friday. With the World Series scene shifting to San Francisco, seemingly all anyone could talk about was Maddon and his potential suitors, likely much to the chagrin of Bud Selig. Of […]
