Greatest Pitcher Ever?
When Bumgarner took over, the score was 3-2, Giants. Bum kept it that way through five innings of shut-out baseball, allowing the Giants to win their third World Series in five years, and their eighth World Series in franchise history. The Fox News announcers opined that the Giants are now a baseball dynasty, and have earned a place in sports history. They also raved about Madison Bumgarner, who they say is one of the best pitchers to ever play the game.
The loss has to be tough to swallow for Kansas City fans. Their team fought its way down a very long, hard road to reach the 7th game of the World Series, only to lose it all by one run. The Royals are a fantastic team in my opinion, and I admire and respect them. I would like to see them win a World Series soon, just not against the Giants.
The Royals last won a World Series 29 seasons ago, in 1985. I know how that long drought feels. Before 2010, the Giants had not won a World Series since 1954 -- a wait of 56 years. I doubt that the Royals will have to wait that long. They are too good of a team.
