Giants win World Series; Bumgarner Dominates; Kids Club Picks (10-30-14)

October 30th, 2014 · Comments

The San Francisco Giants win Game 7 of the World Series, carried by World Series MVP Madison Bumgarner, who pitched a masterful five innings of relief and completed the single greatest pitching performance in a World Series.  We'll cover the Giants' incredible run to a World Series, an unlikely run coming in as a Wild Card team that started thier postseason on the Road at Pittsburgh, and finished it with a high popup to the red-hot hitting Pablo Sandoval at 3rd Base.  The Royals' run to the World Series was also a great story, with standout relievers Herrera, Davis, and Holland, plus their exciting outfield of Aoki, Cain, and Gordon, along with their stars Butler, Hosmer, and Moustakas.  Ned Yost got the team a long way, but we'll cover where things may have erred for Kansas City.  PLUS The Kids Club returns for podcast football picks, and we'll cover the College Football Playoff Committee's top four selections plus the picks from the NCAA and NFL.
