Riding The Bum to victory

Scrape, persist, get lucky, and then add the simply awesome, amazing Madison Bumgarner. Without him in the post season, the Giants would have been dead meat, as color commentator Mike Krukow would say. (For more on Bum, see this wonderful story in the New York Times.)

This series was dedicated to a woman named Judy, who suddenly passed away in her sleep last week, just on the eve of the Giants’ three-game home series in S.F. She had tickets to all three. Her funeral this weekend will be filled with orange and black.

To Judy and the Giants!
