Also, the Giants are officially the Jetered Yankees, right?  Posey is the new Jeter, Bumgardner is the new Pettitte?

Did Gordon not look like he was running all the way there? He's fast enough to go all the way I think with that much time.

Fivethirtyeight.com/datalab/send-Alex-Gordon

Nate silver analyzing if Alex Gordon should have tried for home.

Had he:

A) Been running to first expecting extra bases, and not just a single

and

B) Not been slowing up heading into third (all the photos showing where he was vs the ball, are all AFTER he rounds third, and thus AFTER he was slowing down)

Then yes, he would've made it easily. Neither of those things happened, and so the question of if he would have made it given where things actually were is a lot closer. Crawford was deep. It would've taken a strong and accurate throw. He's more than capable of it. The real question, is did you have a better chance of scoring a run by sending him, or by counting on somebody else to get a hit off Bumgarner.

Send the runner.

Silver said to send him even if you estimate only a 30% success rate. Also to be fair he was slowing going into third because he got the stop sign. But he really needed to hustle out of the box.

Completely agree.

He's no Billy Hamilton, but man, you gotta run hard on contact every single game, let alone in the ninth inning of Game 7 of the World Series.

Deadspin analyzed it and concluded that it would have taken another throwing error for Alex Gordon to have made it there.  Of course, he could have ran harder out of the gate, but he probably still would have paused at first because he couldn't have predicted that fielding error.

http://deadspin.com/no-alex-gordon-could-not-have-scored-on-the-misplayed-1652625998



Of course, going for it would have cemented him a place in baseball lore and definitely been the more exciting ending.

One big problem is that if you're the base coach and you send him and he's out, you're the goat, even if you were playing the percentages correctly. And if he makes it, well no one cares about the base coach. So that guy's incentives are not completely aligned with those of the team/fans. But yeah, Gordon should have been running hard to first and then scored. Bumgarner would then of course have to pitch like 3 more shut out innings before the Giants would score and win.

Anyway, this play is the story for nerdy analysts and KC fans. For everyone else, it's just a footnote in the real story of the greatest postseason pitching performance in MLB history.

Jimmy Rollins got traded to the Dodgers today. He's been on the Phillies for 65% of my life. It will be weird to see him in another uniform..

Cespedes to Detroit, Lester to Cubs, Haren and Dee Gordon to Miami. This could shake things up a bit.

Latos to Miami, Simon to Detroit, Reds get 4 prospects.

We are now stacked with prospect arms, so hopefully we're trading for an outfielder...

Baseball IS back!

Let's see....

My Giants will be bad this year (ridiculous "odd-year" argument aside - they just don't have a solid team).

The Padres will be fun to watch.

Having grown up in Chicago, and this being 2015, I'm going to be a Cubs fan all year long.

I would love to see a Red Sox / Cubs World Series. Truly the only two classic parks left. Feel the History!

And as always...:

Anybody except the Yankees.
Anybody except the Dodgers.
The Cardinals are ok, but Cubs are better.
Detroit in the AL Central (I've had a soft spot ever since Sparkyball).
I like the Mets, but don't care all that much about the NLE.
And the division I'm always the most torn about: ALW. I like the Angels. Always have. But the A's are fun too. And I know so many of their fans... And Seattle? They just have such a quietness to them... they're exiting to see succeed. I would not be disappointed to see this division send 3 teams this year.

Now I'm confused! Did the Giants change their logo? I was referring to Chief Wahoo, the official embarrassment logo of my hometown team.
