Giants storm to Game 1 victory behind Bumgarner, Pence
The lead came early, and the Giants never relinquished it. Three more wins, you bozos. Also, this is the first Tech N9ne picture on at the top of a McCovey Chronicles recap. Hi, Tech N9ne!
Before the Kansas City Royals -- the incomparably hot, momentum-brined Royals -- could get an at-bat, the Giants had scored three runs in the World Series. After the ...

How the Giants will handle the Royals and stolen bases
The Giants should worry about a handful of players and be terrified of a couple off the bench.
Stolen bases, stolen bases, stolen bases. Did you hear that the Royals like to steal bases? Vroom. They get on, then they get over. They get on, then they get over. They're the future of baseb...
Giants, Royals set lineup for Game 1
That's Game 1 of the World Series, which both teams are somehow in.
The Giants have used a remarkably consistent lineup throughout the playoffs, save for a rare Juan Perez sighting against the left-handed Gio Gonzalez. There's a wrinkle with their lineup for Game 1 of the World Series, though: They get to use a designated hitter, and he's someone who actually shou...
2014 World Series preview: None of this makes any sense
The Giants and Royals are in the World Series, so there's no point pretending like we know what's going to happen.
Because Travis Ishikawa hit a pennant-winning home run for the 2014 Giants, I rode on a blimp.
I wanted to open my World Series preview with that sentence as a way to highlight the absurdity of it all. After typing it, I couldn't finish the preview...

God dump the queen, she ain't no linkin' being
Here's something I won't link to because there isn't a word for how little I care: those radio stations not playing "Royals" by Lorde. I also won't be linking to that Steward piece about how gritty the Giants are, because it's pretty bad and I don't want to reward that with precious, precious clicks. Clicks are...

This. This is when Tim Lincecum throws six innings in extras and becomes a hero.
There isn't a lot of spit-take news coming out of the pre-World Series media sessions. Someone asked Sergio Romo what country he was from. ...
I will guarantee a Royals victory for $5,000
I have a postseason beard going. They have worked in the past. I will shave it for money. Sorry.
Sorry, but I have a family to feed.
How to root against the Kansas City Royals in the World Series
By rooting for the Giants, silly.
The Giants were in the World Series 24 months ago. They won it. They were also in a World Series 24 months before that. They won that. It had been 29 years since the Royals made the playoffs, and now they're on a magical, pixie-dusted run of pure delight. Everyone in America is rooting for the Royals, you know. Everyone...

I link an Antichrist, I dump an anarchist
So when is there more baseball? I hope it's not never.
