Mind Your Manners: Giants Not So Regal with Royals

Well, we have got a series, folks. Several had wondered going in to Tuesday night’s contest, “Would the Kansas City Royals actually lose a playoff game?” The San Francisco Giants emphatically answered, “Yes” while putting on a 7–1 drubbing in front of the Royals’ faithful—and some weird Marlins fan. Seriously, what was he doing there? Anyway, Game 1 presented us...

Hunter Strickland says he’s ‘embarrassed’ over kerfuffle with Salvador Perez

After having some time to reflect upon his conduct during Game 2 of the World Series on Wednesday night, Hunter Strickland admits he’s realized the error in his ways. So much so, in fact, that the San Francisco Giants relief pitcher feels “embarrassed” over the entire incident. Strickland was on the mound when the Kansas...Read More The post Hunter Strickland says he’s ‘embarrassed’...

Strickland 'embarrassed', hopes for another chance

Hunter Strickland already owned up to his emotional transgressions in Game 2 of the World Series Wednesday night. Given a day to process everything that happened, though, and after talking with coaches and teammates, the right-handed rookie said he had an even better understanding of how bad it looked when he stared down Royals catcher Salvador Perez and started an unprovoked war...

John McGrath: The Giants have become the Yankees — obnoxious

The San Francisco Giants are a nuisance. There was a time I couldn’t imagine saying that. The old Giants contended now and then but usually just stayed out of the way, playing games in a baseball park known for its perpetual fog, fierce gusts, and hot dog wrappers swirling in the outfield. Candlestick Park was so dispiriting, The Beatles finished off an indifferent 11-song set...

Five Brilliant Takeaways From World Series Game 2

Actually I have a dozen brilliant takeaways from the Kansas City Royals 7-2 victory over the San Francisco Giants to conclude the first round of the 2014 World Series. But space considerations (and not wanting to be responsible for people dozing off and damaging their laptops) forces me to keep things focused and tight. For once. Those KC faithful who last Wednesday filled Kauffman...

College Football Viewer’s Guide: Week Nine

Ed Note: The following viewers guide comes to us courtesy our friends at The Student Section. It’s one of the laws of college football physics: When anyone says that a given week is going to be dull, at least in certain spots, that week — especially the supposedly dull game window — springs to life. Last week, that law was violated. In the week-eight viewer’s guide, the...

The Hardest Thing To Watch

I can not say how far my opinion of Hunter Strickland dropped after that scene.  I don’t think he was intentionally yelling at Perez, and there was a long shot (rarely seen in the highlights) where Strickland was walking away from home plate as Perez reached it, not focusing on that at all, and Perez starts barking to turn Strickland around and really begin the bench-clearing...

Grading the Home Runs Against Hunter Strickland

Harold Reynolds on Wednesday, a few pitches into Hunter Strickland‘s appearance: I think they figured out the problems with Strickland. He struggled against the Nationals and actually a little bit against the Cardinals, but, my goodness, against the right-handed hitters, we saw last night and these first two pitches, very impressive.

Hunter Strickland loses his cool, and maybe Giants’ confidence

Man, what is the deal with Hunter Strickland? Typically, the 26-year-old right-hander would be a nice story, the type we love to celebrate during the postseason. Prior to this year, Strickland was a career minor leaguer, drafted by the Red Sox in 2007 and playing in the Boston and Pittsburgh organizations before landing with the Giants last year. After compiling a 2.09 ERA in 41...

By: Apurv BaichwalTalk about reversing trends. After everything went so well yesterday for the Giants, they had the exact opposite results today.

Royals clobber Giants 7-2 to even World Series

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) Salvador Perez and the pesky Kansas City Royals fought back from a Game 1 flop to beat the San Francisco Giants' brilliant bullpen and even the World Series.

Fueled by big sixth inning, Royals tie up World Series with 7-2 victory over Giants

Salvador Perez pointed to his mouth and then to his chest. The objects of his ire were the blazing eyes and flapping lips of San Francisco reliever Hunter Strickland.
