Player Notes
Madison Bumgarner was named World Series MVP and set a postseason record for innings pitched along the way, tossing five scoreless innings in relief and earning the win in the Giants' Game 7 victory Wednesday.

Advice: The left-hander finished 3-0 in the World Series with the win. The previous record for innings pitched in a single postseason was 48 1/3 innings, so Bumgarner's 52 2/3 innings smashed that record with relative ease. That he gave up just six runs in the entire postseason, and just one in 21 World Series innings, was icing on the cake. Bumgarner won his first World Series MVP award on the heels of his first NLCS MVP award, and the ring was his third in five full seasons. The scariest part is that, at 25 years old, he may still be getting better as a pitcher.

Giants manager Bruce Bochy told reporters Wednesday evening that Madison Bumgarner could throw 50-60 pitches of relief in Game 7 of the World Series.

Advice: Bochy noted that it's Bumgarner's normal side session day and that the young left-hander typically throws around 50 pitches in those workouts. Tim Hudson will start Game 7 on Wednesday night at Kauffman Stadium, but Bochy could opt for a quick hook at the first sign of trouble. Bumgarner dominated the Royals in Games 1 and 5.

Giants manager Bruce Bochy said Tuesday that he prefers to hold Madison Bumgarner out of Game 6 in order to have him available for 2-3 innings in a potential Game 7.

Advice: Bochy said that Bumgarner could pitch Tuesday if the club needs "a really big out," but we have a better chance of seeing him Wednesday if the series is extended. Bumgarner threw 117 pitches in Sunday's shutout, but it's all hands on deck as the Giants shoot for their third World Series title in five years.

Giants manager Bruce Bochy didn't rule out using Madison Bumgarner in relief during Tuesday's Game 6 of the World Series.

Advice: Bumgarner threw 117 pitches in Sunday's shutout, but he'll sit in the bullpen with the rest of the relievers on Tuesday just in case. "Hopefully we don’t need him," Bochy said. "Hopefully we can get this done without him tonight. … If we need a big out, a really big out, we would use him." While MadBum's usage in Game 6 is likely a long shot, there's probably a decent chance he could be used for an inning or two in Game 7, if there is one.

Madison Bumgarner absolutely dominated the Royals in Game 5 of the World Series on Sunday, scattering just four hits over nine shutout innings of work.

Advice: The All-Star southpaw punched out eight on the evening without issuing a free pass, needing 117 pitches to complete his masterpiece. He got better as the game progressed, retiring the final nine hitters that he faced and 14 of the final 15. The only thing he didn’t do well on the night was swing the bat, finishing 0-for-4 at the dish. He has been phenomenal this postseason, compiling a 4-1 record, 1.13 ERA, 0.68 WHIP and 41/6 K/BB ratio over 46 2/3 innings. The Giants will pass the ball now to Jake Peavy as they attempt to close out the Royals in Game 6 and secure their third title in the past five seasons.

Giants manager Bruce Bochy said Friday that the team has discussed the possibility of starting Madison Bumgarner in Game 4 of the World Series on short rest if they lose Game 3.

Advice: That would also possibly put him in line to start Game 7, which would also be on short rest. However, Bochy said that Ryan Vogelsong is still slated to get the ball in Game 4 "right now." We'll see if the plans change should San Francisco drop Game 3 on Friday.

Madison Bumgarner was a beast again Tuesday, holding the Royals to one run over seven excellent frames in a 7-1 World Series Game 1 victory.

Advice: He struck out five, walked one and allowed just three hits, with Salvador Perez’s solo homer in the seventh inning representing the only blemish on his record. The Royals were only able to muster one rally versus Bumgarner, and that was in the third inning after Brandon Crawford booted a ball to start the frame. MadBum wound up pitching out of that inning with a couple strikeouts and a groundout. Perez’s homer is the only run Bumgarner has allowed in the World Series in 22 career innings. He’ll get the ball again in Game 5, assuming the series lasts that long.
