To build a friendship takes years, to destroy it...just a second...
Baseball fans go nuts in the postseason. Just go insane with the pitching stuff.
Why not just pitch Bumgarner every game! Be desperate! Oh, wait, he's strong now because SFGs have kept him on regular rest all year.
But if the starter gives Bochy less than 6, as Peavy did today, it gets tricky with only 4 guys Bochy can trust. We'll see about #55.
If Bochy gets 6 innings out of his starter, he can maneuver through the last 3 with Affeldt-Lopez-Romo-Casilla and cameos by others...
This only makes Hudson's start Friday more significant. Because he'd also be slated for Game 7.
I think the Giants are still in very solid shape. But Peavy in Game 6 isn't a great prospect and that middle relief is even shakier...
Hahaha "I'm not one of those idiots"... Tell em!
Doc Rivers on the hardest part of making the transition from broadcaster to coach: "I don't know, working every day?"
Van Gundy is wildn tonight
You don't know what you'll get from a pitcher who hasn't pitched in almost a month. Lincecum looked great, until that.
8-pitch inning for Lincecum.
Hunter Strickland was out there acting like he had two World Series rings under belt.
Never been accurate to paint Jo Buck as not liking SF Giants. He just said SF best baseball atmosphere in WS since old Yankee Stadium.
Strickland hasn't earned right to act like that & put teammates like Posey, Pence, Sandoval, etc., in position where they must support.
LINCECUM now throwing in the pen.
Strickland is yelling and gesturing at KC's bench
Strickland cave-in. Wow.
Strickland ... Why he is in for critical spots, I don't get it
And as I type that, I see Affeldt starting to loosen up in the pen.
Nobody else throwing in the SFG pen. This is up to Strickland for now. Infante-Moustakas after Perez.
Strickland vs. Perez now. Thought Bochy might do it this way.
Just disrespected Ishikawa's arm. Cain wasn't even at third when Ishi got it, still got waved home
Gore pinch-running for Butler. Here they go.
It'll be Lopez to face Gordon.
Strickland up with Lopez in the SFG pen.
Machi in. I think Bochy will go to Lopez vs. Gordon, so this is probably a one-batter appearance for Machi.
Wonder if Bochy goes righty (Machi vs. Butler) lefty (Lopez vs. Gordon) after Hosmer here.
Looks like machi and lopez throwing in SFG pen
That was some nasty stuff from Herrera.
If Sandoval hits a double here, I don't think Posey's going to try to score. Just a thought.
Dyson in CF, Cain moves to RF, Aoki out.
Admirable outing from Peavy
10 in a row fo rPeavy.
Going to assume the BBQ in San Francisco is better than the dim sum in Kansas City.
KC needs Ventura to last a lot longer than SFGs' need Peavy. No Duffy available. Giants have everybody.
28 pitches in the last 3 innings for Peavy.
That's 7 in a row retired by Peavy. Of course it is.
Third base was briefly wide open, which is why Belt thought about going. He's not fast enough to think those thoughts, though.
What happened to the Royals outfield????
Mark Gardner just had a quick talk with Petit in the SFG bullpen, but still nobody throwing.
The Royals have more doubles (3) than swing-and-misses (2).
Just 11 pitches in that inning for Peavy--the Royals are SWINGING.
Righetti out... gotta figure one more hit and Petit will start throwing. So far still nothing in bullpen.
Nobody stirring in SFG pen. Yet.
Fast infield tonight.
Both pitchers got hit solidly in the 1st, both threw 20 pitches.
Single, fly ball, double, walk, single off of Peavy so far. He's not fooling 'em.
Great tag by Panik. Don't know if he got him, but the short-hop tag got the call.
Of course Blanco homers. I'm in traffic and didn't watch it
Not always a barometer of much, but Ventura was all over the place in his warm-up pitches just now.
Lincecum was out for the national anthem. Yes. Him.
Brandon Rush said the rookies did a terrible job signing Happy Birthday to Festus Ezeli and might have to do it again at the open practice.

Bob Fitzgerald: "You don't win anything without talent. If you have Ed Lee instead of David Lee, you're in trouble."
Bumgarner had just won NLCS MVP. Sabean told the pitcher: "What the hell are you going to do when you grow up?' The guy's 25 years old."
Spoke to Brian Sabean about several topics yesterday. One snippet: On the podium after the NLCS victory, he was alone with Bumgarner...
Steve Kerr: "I'm a Southern Californian, but I love the Bay Area."
Bob Myers said when he was an agent, players didn't know where Golden State was located.
Bob Fitzgerald calls Bob Myers UCLA's human victory cigar.
Somebody pls tell SF Mayor Ed Lee: Those sports figurines are bobblehead dolls. Not Bobby-head dolls.
Ed Lee presented with a David Lee bobblehead and jersey. Ed Lee then calls David Lee his long lost brother.
Ed Lee to Warriors players: "You make us proud."
Ed Lee: "Go Ws!" As in "Go double u's!"
