So here we are; Game 7 of the 2014 World Series between the Kansas City Royals and the San Francisco Giants. The Royals, who haven’t appeared in the post season, never mind being in a World Series, since 1985. It took an improbable, dramatic late inning rally and extra innings, for them just to survive the Wild Card game against Oakland. A game some might argue was a sign that the Royals were a team of destiny. Facing them are the Giants, the team that has won two of the last four World Series and is attempting to build a dynasty. Two wild card teams, evenly matched, in a single, winner-take-all game to become champions of Major League Baseball!
It all sounds exciting, right? The fact is, that each individual game leading up to this moment, with the exception of Game 3, has been pretty dull. There are no late inning comebacks. Although, you really don’t expect them since both teams have good bullpens. Plus, the games haven’t been close. The Giants easily win the first game 7-1, the Royals respond the next day by winning 7-2. The Giants blow out the Royals 11-4 in Game 4 and last night the Royals answer with their own lopsided victory 10-0. In Game 5 the Giants led 2-0 for most of the game, before tacking on 3 runs in the 8th inning, but the way Bumgarner was pitching the outcome never seemed in doubt. So none of these games will go down as classics in the history of baseball.
As baseball fans, lets hope tonight’s game will be entertaining.
