Bumgarner Crowned the 2014 World Series MVP

Bumgarner earned a sensational save to go along with two sparkling wins as a starter in the Series. That on top of being MVP of the National League Championship Series and pitching a record 52 2/3 innings in this postseason, no one deserved the MVP more than him. He simply carried the team on his back and was the only effective starter on the Giants.

Felt bad for the guy who presented him the truck
@Spudsy2061 Truly amazing. He was basically the only pitcher the Giants had. Everyone else nearly blew it besides Affeldt.
I really dislike the Giants (sorry) but Bumgarner deserves this. He pitched amazing and honestly I can't remember the last time a relief pitcher was the MVP; it's almost unheard of. Shows what an influence he had. What was it a 6 inning save? Amazing.
Historic performance. I'm kind of sad that Panda is not getting the credit he deserves for breaking another record.

Things Only San Francisco Giants Fans Understand!
Well, now that the Super Bowl is over, let's get excited for baseball season! As I've told many people, baseball is my favorite sport. It is indeed the love of my life and I can outright say that although I'm sad football season is over, I am so excited that baseball season will be starting very soon. And even though we haven't played a single game, my friends and I are already talking about who we think is going to win the 2016 World Series. My answer? The San Francisco Giants. So to honor all the Giants fans out there, (this one's for you @ChristopherKenn), here is a card dedicated to fans that speak Giants as their second language. 1. Even Year Enough said right? Just in case you don't know what this means for Giants fans, the Giants are good on even years. I mean really good (well I guess since 2010). Anyways, they are so good that the Giants have won the World Series in 2010, 2012, and 2014. Now you know why Giants fans are excited that it's an even year - 2016. 2. Wearing Orange and Black in October! Why are Giants fans rocking orange and black in October? Well I can say one thing for sure. It has nothing to do with Halloween or autumn. They are just showing their favorite team their full support! 3. Work? No Victory Parade! I mean fans could get tired of going to a victory parade if they win a World Series ring every two years...but not the Giants fans. Your boss would definitely understand if you took a day off to attend the victory parade. Employers should be prepared this year since it's an even year. 4. Hunter Pence's Stolen Scooter Giants fans know Hunter Pence loves his scooter. He loves it so much that he doesn't go to work by taking his car like all the other players. Instead, he pulls out his scooter and rides it to work. So when his scooter was stolen and he asked for help on Twitter, every Giants fan went on searching for Pence's scooter. And eventually...a fan found it! It was a collective effort by the entire Giants fan base. 5. Beat L.A. There is nothing you hate more than the Dodgers if you are a Giants fan. So, you don't care if the Dodgers are playing a different team. A Dodgers' loss is as good as a Giants' win. And if the Giants are playing the Dodgers? They better win, because those games against the Dodgers are the most important games of the season. BEAT LA! Any Giants fans out there? You guys think the Giants will win this year's World Series?
MLB Top Plays of the Day (09/20/15)
Here are your Top 5 Plays of the Day! 5. Matt Duffy (San Francisco Giants) A ground ball hit slowly on the third baseline wasn't going to stop Matt Duffy make this amazing play! He made the throw across his body and retired Nick Ahmed to end the inning. The ball looked like it was going to be an infield hit but Duffy made this exceptional play and let the Giants to a 5-1 win over the Diamondbacks. 4. Chase Utley (Los Angeles Dodgers) The ball was shot up the middle but Chase Utley smothered the ball and made a perfect throw on one knee to first to get the out! The 36 year-old veteran has shown strong defense throughout his entire career and this was just one more play that he added to his repertoire. The Dodgers however fell to the Pirates 4-3. 3. David Murphy (Los Angeles Angels) A strong line drive was hit to left field but David Murphy wasn't going to allow any hits. Murphy chased the ball, lunged for it, and made a beautiful diving catch to end the inning. HIs team however fell to the hot Twins 8-1. 2. Eugenio Suarez (Cincinnati Reds) Eugenio Suarez backhanded that ball and it was a long throw to first. It seemed like a very close call but the first base umpire first ruled the play safe. Reds manager Bryan Price however wasn't going to let it go without a challenge. And after a video review, the decision was overturned and his amazing play even got better with that out. It's always so tough to get a lot out of a throw like that but he made it into a perfect play. The Reds however lost 8-4 against the Milwaukee Brewers. 1. Jason Heyward (St. Louis Cardinals) It was a fly ball lifted into right field. Heyward however wasn't going to be satisfied with just one out. He throws a laser beam to home plate and gets it in time for two outs. He got into a perfect throwing position, it was a perfect throw, and he wowed everyone with a double play. And the Cardinals who are the number one ranked team in the MLB, beat the Chicago Cubs, the third best team in the MLB 4-3. Now that was your Top 5 Plays of the Day from last night's games!

The Woman Who Struck Out Babe Ruth
And Lou Gehrig too. On April 2, 1931 the seventeen year-old Jackie Mitchell struck out Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig back-to-back. They were arguably the deadliest hitting duo in baseball history, and she did it in only seven pitches. Which is pretty damn impressive. Less impressive is what happened afterwards. "They are too delicate. It would kill them to play ball every day." Ruth wasn't the most gracious in defeat (via), and some historians have dismissed the exhibition game as an April Fool's Prank. It's unlikely that Ruth would have been visibly upset if he struck out on purpose, nor would he have asked the umpire to inspect the ball. And a few days later, Mitchell's contract was voided on the basis that baseball was "too strenuous" for women. Yeah, beating some of the most famous players of all time sounds really strenuous. What if she broke a nail?! /sarcasm She kept playing anyway. So clearly the game wasn't TOO strenuous (she died in 1987 at the age of 74). She joined the amateur team House of David in 1933, and retired in 1937. Meanwhile, women weren't formally banned from the MLB until 1952, though unofficially they were often kept off the field. Such was the case for Eleanor Engle, who never took the field. The President of the minor leagues stated that no contract with a woman would be approved because “not in the best interest of baseball that such travesties be tolerated.” In the 1970s girls were allowed to join Little League, in the 80s women joined college baseball, and in the 1990s, Ila Borders joined the St. Paul Saints of the independent Northern League. But no female player has reached the majors (yet). But the 100-year anniversary of the time a teenage girl struck out some of the toughest hitters in baseball history. Maybe it'll happen again in 2031?

The 5 Strangest Superstition in Sports!
Hello sports fans! It's Friday the 13th! Here are some of the strangest superstitions in sports! Michael Jordan Michael always wore his UNC shorts under his NBA shorts. Thus, he wore longer shorts than his fellow players at that time. In the end however, his fellow players followed suit after the legend. Serena Williams Serena Williams is known for not changing socks once during a tournament. It sucks to wear a pair of socks for more than a day...imagine how it would feel to wear the same socks for an entire tournament! I guess Serena doesn't mind it considering the number of tournaments she has won. Brian Ulracher Brian Ulracher ate two chocolate chip cookies before every game. Maybe that was the secret to his muscular body. I think it'd be fair to call him the "Cookie Monster". Caron Butler Caron Butler was known to be an avid fan of Mountain Dew. He loved the drink so much that he drank before and during every game. During his UNC days, he asked his wife to pick him a 2-L bottle of the green stuff, and drank half of it before the game, and the rest during half-time. In 2007, the Wizards and NBA banned him from drinking it during games so he eventually quit the whole thing in 2009. Moises Alou This one has to be the most f*cked up one out of all of them. Moises Alou used to pee on his own hands to harden them! Should we see that as commitment to the game of baseball or just some pretty weird ass shit? Oh and by the way, don't try to harden your hands by peeing on them ladies and gentlemen, because doctors have confirmed that peeing on your hand doesn't harden them. It actually softens them. @jeff4122 @ButterflyBlu @superiorsl @Starbell808 @DonnaMelton @InPlainSight @jokes @BEAUTYgirlARIEL @David19Flo23 @karencorchado @salahabdalla @Moose892 @BrookieyElba @SamuelRodriguez @ValerieAlissaPa @xitlalicordova1 @AndrewMaldonado @Jovi @Shippudenguy21 @AbdulrahmanSaad @trinityarcangel @thefeels @Link4TW @ChriSingularis @sanazsanaz @WilliamBrown @DannyMoses @ClaySharko @Ravenwing92 @FromBlue2U @TravisBeck @LemissaNicole @BossDominata @gatorchick96 @MatthewBoughton @MarcusJiles @BrandonMcNeil @MalikLawary @KyleBerke @manbungo2000 @DerekGumtow @havic @Straightshooter @PhilAnthony @Kirooken @yaakattackk @RodneyYoung @DreJones @JonathanKerns @bnzattoni @TravisManning @GalacticChakra @smothgreen @afxs @johnnolastname @ChristopherKenn @ChasePage @coreywriley91@MikeWolf @MrTenThirty @JasonNilsson @BrunoDutch @SherzTYC @krishntejanand @addri @ChrisStephens What was your favorite one from the list?

Carbon Road Bike Frames
Carbon Road Bike Frames Not all carbon road bike frames are made in Asia. The frame is the heart and soul of the bicycle. All components are secured together into a single cohesive whole. Thus, buyers when selecting the correct frame, the basic material matters a lot. A good carbon road bike frame is a combination of carbon fibers of different types which are used in different places in a frame for extremely specific purposes. Carbon road bike frames are used by cyclists and in the racing world. When out to buy a new bike, the market will offer multiple bike frame material and choice becomes difficult. The alternative is between aluminum, carbon fiber, titanium, and steel. Carbon road bike frames are manufactured through the weaving of carbon fiber strands and allowing it to set within a hard epoxy resin. These are light, sturdy, and reasonably stiff. The material can be crafted into aerodynamic shapes. Features of the carbon frames. Comfort-ride quality has been accepted as beneficial for carbon frames. The carbon can be devised to be stiff in some directions and yielding in others. This makes the carbon frame convenient over bumps and rough roads but stiff sufficiently for efficient pedalling and vertically compliant. Carbon by its very nature lessens vibration when riding. The tires and touch points also influence the comfort level. Weight- a lighter bike can better the riding experience. It is possible to construct exceptionally light and capable bikes out of carbon. The strength-to-weight ratio in carbon is better. All the carbon is not equal. There are grades in carbon. The lower-grade carbon consists of more fillers leading to cost-cutting but enhancing the weight. That is why carbon is the best choice. The higher-grade carbon through expert engineering brings out carbon bikes that are strong but intensely light. Frame only contributes to a part of the bike's total weight. The remaining weight is made up of components. Wheels specifically will make a big difference in bike weight and its heaviness when riding. Receptivity and stiffness-the bike must be laterally stiff and vertically compliant. When pedals are pushed hard, or the corner is to be maneuvered a good frame requires stiffness to oppose the torsional forces so that torsional forces help in handling the bike. Technically carbon as a material is best suited for the purpose. Durability- most riders are fearful of damaging an expensive carbon frame. Carbon fiber strength to weight ratio is higher compared to steel. Carbon has limitless fatigue life but is likely to get damaged by the direct impact such as a big crash. Carbon can be repaired with ease and the old becomes as good as new. Expenditure-carbon is expensive as it is produced through the more labor-intensive method. Every frame needs a committed mold which adds to the cost. Carbon fiber layout is possible by hand. Components are easy to upgrade than frames. Visual examination-carbon fiber unlocked new potential in cycle design. This has made the bike curves smooth and swooping. The bike is beautiful and appealing. Carbon delivers the performance of many high-end carbon fiber frames.
