att park san francisco giantsTonight’s winner will be but a game away from the championship. I won’t hide it – I’m pulling for the Royals. I like their story, and I don’t really want to see another Giants victory. Not that I have anything against the Giants, I just don’t think I could stomach the dynasty narrative.

Speaking of narratives: does James Shields continue the he-can’t-pitch-in-the-postseason one tonight? And does Bumgarner keep doing the opposite of that?
