Would You Have Sent Gordon? A Drunk Person Asks

Look, it’s hard for me to get violent over a World Series game in which I have no emotional stake. But last night’s game seven between the Giants and Royals gave me my money’s worth. It also delivered one of the more pulse-pounding conclusions to a World Series in recent years, with everything literally riding on the final pitch. But in the aftermath, an interesting debate...

Should The Royals Have Waved Alex Gordon Home? (Video)

Here are two Tweets that illustrate the conversations that will be going on for a very long time. Yes, Gordon would have been out by 15 feet had he gone home. So please, drop that narrative. pic.twitter.com/0g02CuIC9z — Isaac (@WorldofIsaac) October 30, 2014 Gordon was at third base at this point. Would have taken a perfect throw to get him at plate. #Royals pic.twitter.com/O0VyaaU9T7...

The San Francisco Giants were on the receiving end of a 10-0 whipping in Game 6 of the World Series on Tuesday night.

Royals Hang Ten, Force Game Seven With Giants

The pressure was definitely on the Royals to win tonight. It’s simple: More pressure means a better performance, less pressure means a worse performance.

Chance? Heck, yes, they have a chance! Ventura was amazing!

Just what the Royals needed. Ventura had just amazing stuff. He had some troubles with getting strikes, but Kellogg also was calling a very tight (and inconsistent) strike zone tonight. Eighth inning was pretty odd. Frasor throws perfect pitches to Panik and Sandoval and gives up hits to both, but then throws about as bad a pitch as you can throw to Pence and gets away with it...

And it looks like they did just that. Several Royals said after...Read More
