By the time Game 3 came to a close, the only thing colder than the breezy night air gusting through AT&T Park was the San Francisco Giants’ offense.
Kansas City starter Jeremy Guthrie, the Royals’ posse of ruthlessly effective middle relievers, and closer Greg Holland all helped shut down a helpless-looking Giants team that could only scrape out four hits in a tough 3...
Heading into a three-game stretch at home, the San Francisco Giants are tied at one game apiece with the Kansas City Royals. Giants catcher Buster Posey, the best player left in this postseason, has struggled to provide punch to the middle of the Giants order. 12 games into the postseason, Posey has yet to record his first extra-base hit.
Since winning the starting catcher job...
Buster Posey hasn’t been quite himself this postseason. Through Wednesday’s game in Kansas City, he’s batted .288/.333/.288, which isn’t terrible but has included an un-Poseyish power outage. His batting line was better during the NLDS against Washington, which is ironic because most of the failures I’m about to talk about took place during that series. […]
Sponsored by The Ford Motor Company The Kansas City Royals tied the World Series 1-1 on Wednesday night with a 7-2 win over the San Francisco Giants. While the Royals proved that this year’s Fall Classic won’t be a walkover for the Giants, they are still a long way from knocking off the franchise that has won two of the last four World Series. If Kansas City can’t stop San...
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. A popular belief is that someone needs to fill the role vacated by longtime New York Yankees captain Derek Jeter, who retired this season...
In the bottom of the fourth inning of last night’s Game 1, there was a moderately humorous moment when Salvador Perez “struck out” on an 0-2 pitch in the dirt. Buster Posey retrieved the loose ball and tagged Perez for the “out,” all while Perez looked on in amazement, insisting he’d fouled the pitch off. As […]

First, Erin Andrews tries to bully Buster Posey’s kid, and now she is making up words that Hunter Pence never said. Is Erin Andrews hot? You betcha. Should she be interviewing athletes after World Series Game 1 victories? Apparently not.

God I hate baseball. This really should be “Dodgers vs. Royals,” but here we are. Everyone here is the biggest Royals’ fan ever because of their opponent.
Kansas City, Mo.
If I told anybody, that come October the last two teams standing in the MLB would be the Kansas City Royals and the San Francisco Giants, they would probably call me crazy. That’s the great thing about baseball though, you should always expect the unexpected. Although we may not have been treated to the closest of series’ so far, one thing that nobody can deny is the quality...
With the World Series beginning, it’s time for some analysis. But all due respect to the sabermetrics folks, the Oakland A’s have long-since been eliminated from the postseason. That means the best way to analyze the Giants-Royals matchup is with a good, old-fashioned Tale of the Tape.
Get ready to be informed.

On the one hand, Kansas City is a great story. America loves an underdog, and the small market Royals returning to the World Series fills the bill.
Unfortunately, there are plenty of other hands for this year’s World Series.
The series features two wildcard teams, neither of which won 90 games. There is a huge vacuum of star power.

Buster Posey’s resume is growing.
The San Francisco Giants catcher is a two-time MLB All-Star, a National League Rookie of the Year, an MVP, a batting champion and a two-time World Series champion. He might soon win a third ring. And he’s only 27.
But is Posey the new “face of baseball” now that New York Yankee shortstop Derek Jeter has retired?
ESPN’s Jayson Stark thinks...
By Tyler Birss 10/20/14 On the eve of the 2014 World Series, many questions concerning this exciting and unpredictable matchup remain. When watching the Fall Classic, here are five questions and potential answers worth keeping in mind. Can Buster Posey contain the Royals’ running game? Posey is one of the better catchers in baseball at […]

There’s no shortage of reasons why the Giants find themselves in the World Series for the third time in five years, really, and you can start anywhere. Maybe that’s Jake Peavy, a disappointment in Boston and now a revelation in San Francisco. Or rookie Joe Panik, filling a hole that was so bad it had […]
Alex Gordon, Lorenzo Cain and the go-go-go Kansas City Royals played perfect ball to zip through the playoffs. Plus, they recently flattened Buster Posey and his Giants.
So how come this bunch that's rapidly become a fan favorite all across the country isn't the favorite against San Francisco in the World Series?

Buster Posey basked in the national television spotlight Thursday night after leading the San Francisco Giants to the World Series for the third time in five years.
That is until his young son, Lee, stole his thunder.
The Giants catcher was holding Lee in his arms while being interviewed by FOX’s Erin Andrews after the game. Lee, clearly oblivious to the gravity of the situation...
Just because today can also be “flashback Friday,” this photo is quite appropriate.
Erin Andrews isn’t scripted; she goes with the flow and is actually quite good at it. During last night’s events, she was interviewing Buster Posey and his son, Lee, was crying. Erin Andrews kept it real. She said, “You’re going to the World Series. I need you to get it together here...
Erin Andrews is used to thinking on her feet when random situations are thrown her way.
She proved to keep her cool when Richard Sherman stole her mic and put the kibosh on the 49ers. So when Buster Posey’s crying son came her way following the Giants clinching a spot in the World Series, she keep it blunt.
There’s no crying in baseball
