I wrote this blog back in November, 2010 and it still gets views on a daily basis. It’s relevant today as Madison Bumgarner has matured into one of the game’s best pitchers and Buster Posey has matured into one of the best team leaders as evidenced in this postseason by catching that 18 inning game and then turns around the next day and catches another 9 innings in a daytime game. Here’s a link to the song that was originally deleted by MLB but has since been determined to be allowed by the “Fair Use” provision of the Copyright Law. “Say Hey” by Michael Franti

I wish I’d written this song. I’m so emotional this morning I probably shouldn’t even be blogging, but couldn’t help myself. Here are some interesting facts related to last night’s SF Giants 4-0 Win over the Texas Rangers.
- Texas is the first team since the 1966 Dodgers to be shut out twice in the same World Series.
- Bumgarner is the youngest (21) rookie to make a scoreless start of six innings or more in World Series history.
- Texas is the first team since the 1966 Dodgers to be shut out twice in the same World Series :))
- Bumgarner is just the second lefty ever to strike out Vlad Guerrero three times in a game, joining Al Leiter in 1998.
