Buster Posey, Nine Other Candidates To Become ‘Face Of MLB’ (Photos)

The Buster Posey hype train is reaching new speeds this October. As the San Francisco Giants seek their third World Series title in five seasons, some pundits, including ESPN’s Jayson Stark, are dubbing Posey the new face of Major League Baseball.

The San Francisco Giants are zombies

The excellent thing about baseball’s postseason will always be the inaccuracies that bring poetic endings. No one would believe the amount of incredible catches, seeing-eye singles and thrifty trips around the base paths the Kansas City Royals enjoyed en route to their first Fall Classic in 29 years. It’s beautiful and lively. The home run […] The post Never Count Out The...

Pablo Sandoval makes a huge impact, no pun intended. Sandoval has a track record of postseason success with the San Francisco Giants. He earned World Series MVP honors in 2012 and currently is seeking his third title in five seasons. According to Giants teammate Jake Peavy, Sandoval’s “it” factor in October is something few players across Major League Baseball possess. “Pablo...

Giants dethrone Royals in Game 1 of World Series

Big Game James was far from that in the Royals first World Series game in 29 years. From the first inning when the Giants battered the changeless Shields for three runs there was no escaping for Shields. It started in the very first at bat with former Royal Gregor Blanco singling on a change up that Shields left up. Following a productive Joe Panik at bat Pablo Sandoval put the Giants...

San Francisco Giants: World Series keys

No states are rooting for the Giants in the World Series

It was just four years ago that the San Francisco Giants were America’s cinderella team. Going up against the Texas Rangers back in the 2010 World Series, not many expected the Giants to pull out the first championship in their west coast history. But dominating their way through a five-game series win over the Rangers, Bruce Bochy’s squad started a run that has turned into three...

Five keys for the Giants in the World Series

The San Francisco Giants are four wins away from their third World Series championship in five seasons, which is pretty unbelievable considering the franchise went 56 years between their last title and their first one in this current run.
