Early thoughts on how Bruce Bochy might run his Game 7 pitching order... bit.ly/1tiSX3G

Diamond Leung

Would less than 51 wins be a disappointment? Kerr: "Feel free to say that, write that. I don't think in those terms." insidebayarea.com/warriors/ci_26…

Tim Kawakami

We cover these games. We note when we've covered several Game 7s in one year. THAT is what drives SFG fans bananas today? Ohh kay.

Matt Steinmetz

With David Lee likely out tonight, gotta believe pro-Draymond Green twitter contingent like kids on X-mas morning.

Tim Kawakami

Bay Area is currently 0-2 in Game 7s. Of course this is the World Series, not the first round.

Tim Kawakami

As it dawned on @MercPurdy and I late last night: This is the 3rd Bay Area Game 7 since April. Sharks-Kings, GSW-Clips, now Giants-KC.

Tim Kawakami

Just devoured a burnt ends sandwich from Jack Stack. I am now available to sleep through the middle innings tonight.

Tim Kawakami

Giants should stick to tradition and bring out next-game's starter for a presser today. That'd be Bumgarner for 2015 opening day, of course.

The gray areas are Bumgarner and Lincecum. Bochy could use one of them as a two-out guy and the other as a multiple-innings guy.

Tim Kawakami

I'd think Bochy ideally wants Affeldt-Romo-Casilla for last 3 innings but might have to push that to 4. That leaves 5+ for Hudson & Friends.

Tim Kawakami

I'd think Giants want at least 4 innings from Hudson, and Bumgarner can be a bridge to the 6th. If Hudson can't go 4, then it's patchwork.

Tim Kawakami

No, I don't think Madison Bumgarner should start. But he'll be ready to go for a key situation very, very quickly.

Stephen Curry

Praying for the best and a speedy recovery for Julius Randle! Never want to see that happen to anybody….

Monte Poole

#Lakers already gonna lose 60. With Julius Randle's broken leg, it's a hopeless 60.

Jrue Holiday

Praying for Randall!!! God be with you bro. You'll bounce back

Final version of my column from the Giants' Game 6 junker... and the quiet calm of the clubhouse afterwards. bit.ly/10xRCge

Festus Ezeli

Feel for anyone w knee injuries

Festus Ezeli

Teammates just chilln lol

Draymond Green

That's how Kobe teammates on the floor gone let that go down??? Lol that's crazy

Tim Kawakami

Thought Jeremy Affeldt's matter-of-fact comment summed up the SFG clubhouse tonight: "We’re going to Game 7, we’re not dead."

Tim Kawakami

What was the Giants' clubhouse like after the 10-0 collapse? Everybody looked you in the eye, nobody got squirrelly. bit.ly/10xRCge

Last yr Steve Kerr called Warriors legitimate contenders to reach NBA Finals. This yr he's leaving that to the media: insidebayarea.com/warriors/ci_26…

Tim Kawakami

Is he getting tired? "I think everybody feels it this time of year," Posey said. "I mean, it’s almost Halloween."

Tim Kawakami

Buster Posey on getting the 2 innings off tonight, first time he's been out during the postseason: "Yeah, it'll help."

Tim Kawakami

Bochy reaffirms that Tim Hudson is starting Game 7. Bumgarner is available out of the bullpen.

Tim Kawakami

That's it, 10-0 KC. Tomorrow is Game 7. Whatever the outcome, hope it's a better game than this one.

Tim Kawakami

I'd presume this is most likely list for G7: Hudson (starter), Lincecum, Affeldt, Lopez, Romo, Casilla, Petit, Bumgarner. Order? Don't know.

Tim Kawakami

Vogelsong coming in. Presume this will basically rule him out for tomorrow.

Tim Kawakami

Hudson starts tomorrow. Petit is available. So are the pitchers I just mentioned... Unless Vogelsong finishes up this one.

Marcus Thompson

I couldn't find one RT @JohnSchairer: @TedSillanpa how many times has bumgardner pitched on short rest?

Tim Kawakami

Here are the available Giants pitchers who have not appeared tonight: Affeldt, Casilla, Romo, Lincecum, Lopez, Vogelsong and Bumgarner.

Marcus Thompson

Royals are about to be 3-1 in non-Bumgarner starts, so far totaling 24 runs. The one loss came when Giants scored 11 in SF

Marcus Thompson

It's more of a feat if it doesn't RT @thehutchster: ..hopefully this doesn't ruin him

Jrue Holiday

I Love This Game!!! 1-0 great start to the season!!! @ Training Room instagram.com/p/uuGlBQRx6l/

Marcus Thompson

Well said RT @TedSillanpa: Agreed. And, we're all just giving opinions. I'm a writer who coached but I'm not the expert many claim to be.

Tim Kawakami

Susac is going to catch this inning. This might make some people mad.

Tim Kawakami

I'm not saying Posey is a bad player. He's an incredible player. Who hasn't gotten an extra-base hit in October. Why?

Tim Kawakami

Posey back out to catch the bottom of the 6th.

Tim Kawakami

Posey will bat second this inning. Then I wonder if he comes out. I don't know. I'm just wondering.

Tim Kawakami

Strickland throwing in SFG pen.

Tim Kawakami

I realize many fans don't believe players should get tired. But they do, sometimes. If it gets you mad, oh well.

Tim Kawakami

Posey has caught all 149 innings of the Giants postseason. Might be time to make sure it's not 154 out of 154... heading into Game 7.

Marcus Thompson

I agree with you. Just saying RT @GuyFromMarin: That's one guy. Pitching on short rest is definitely a disadvantage.

Marcus Thompson

Right! RT @derekc5: I remember the good old days when you expected your ace to pitch 1, 4 & 7.

Marcus Thompson

What's harder on a pitcher - starting Game 4 and 7 on 3 days rest? Or Game 5 on reg rest and 7 on two days rest?

Tim Kawakami

Bumgarner vs. Cain for series MVP, I'd say. With one game left.

Tim Kawakami

I asked Bochy about Posey before the game, he said he's checked in and Posey feels good.

Marcus Thompson

A big hit from Posey there changed things dramatically ...

Tim Kawakami

Machi coming in to start the bottom of the 3rd.

Tim Kawakami

Slow bat, slow runner.

Tim Kawakami

See some KC relievers loosening up in pen, not throwing yet.

Marcus Thompson

Kershaw has never been good in postseason. Bumgarner always amazing RT @Giants49ersLove: Yes, that so worked for Kershaw

Tim Kawakami

Petit threw 17 pitches last inning. If he's pulled now, he could be available tomorrow.

Tim Kawakami

Machi throwing in SFG pen.

Marcus Thompson

Of course, I'm not ready to rule out a ridiculous Giants comeback. Still 7 innings left

Tim Kawakami

Tidy little 7-run, 8-hit inning.

Marcus Thompson

This was my biggest reason for starting Bumgarner in Game 4. It's going to take something special to beat KC at home. MadBum alone is that

Marcus Thompson

Is he starting? RT @Franchize9: even if it is the possibility of #MadBum?

Tim Kawakami

Lincecum about to start throwing

Marcus Thompson

Hahahaha RT @jstidham1: no offense bro, but shut up. Lol.

Marcus Thompson

Looks like I'm 6-for-6 predicting this World Series

Tim Kawakami

Nobody throwing in SFG pen.

Tim Kawakami

Now this could be a truly punishing game for the Giants--if they burn Petit and have to go to Game 7 without him.

Marcus Thompson

Rough ending to the season for Peavy. He was good for Giants though

Marcus Thompson

Aoki struck out 49 times in 491 regular season at-bats this year. He refused to let Peavy K him

Tim Kawakami

Petit in to face Cain, still only one out.

Tim Kawakami

Should be it for Peavy. And it is.

Tim Kawakami

Peavy at 22 pitches for just this inning, still only 1 out.

Tim Kawakami

Only reason Peavy's still in is because he struck out Aoki in the first. I think.

Marcus Thompson

Why is Peavy not covering first?

Tim Kawakami

Lopez also throwing in SFG pen

Tim Kawakami

Righetti out. This might be Peavy's last batter.

Marcus Thompson

Perez has been great at the plate this series. He looked horrible before

Tim Kawakami

Petit is warming up FAST.

Tim Kawakami

SFG bullpen is active.

Festus Ezeli

Boris Diaw was a point guard??!

Tim Kawakami

In successive half-innings, DHs have had a shot to drive in a runner with 2 outs. Butler and Morse both hit it pretty goo but ended inning.

Tim Kawakami

Foul ball almost got @annkillion who is sitting like 20 feet back in the press box.

Tim Kawakami

Ventura finished his warm-up pitches way before the long commercial break was over. Lincecum went through the same thing in 2010.

Tim Kawakami

Peavy survives. Giants need 3 or 4 more innings then they can turn it over to the bullpen.

Tim Kawakami

Yesterday Peavy said he'll know he's throwing well if Posey's doesn't have to move his glove to catch the pitches.
