Playoff Prospectus: World Series Preview: Giants vs. Royals
by
Sam Miller

<< Previous Tag Entries Next Tag Entries >>

Down 2-1, the storyline heading into Saturday night is clearly the Giants' decision to not go with their ace on short rest.

The Royals head into Saturday night just two wins away from a World Series title and won’t have to face the Giants ace.

And we're back, ready for Round Two.

With the series tied at 1-1, the setting shifts to San Francisco.

When the glow is gone, how will Royals fans measure the years of losing against the weeks on top?

The Royals have come to the World Series out of nowhere. As recently as July 22nd, they were a sub-.500 team. Also, the Royals have been planning on making exactly this type of postseason conquest for the better part of a decade.

Lorenzo Cain has been getting plenty of love in October, but where was the praise all summer?

The Royals staff threw some major heat and every key moment went their way as they snagged Game Two and evened the World Series at a game apiece.

Sometime before a parade broke out on the path from the visiting bullpen and well before a fight, or more accurately a halfhearted inter-dugout posturing contest, broke out around home plate, the Futures Game broke out at Kauffman Stadium.

On the impossibility of the Royals getting up from a drubbing like that.

OMFSM! The Giants not only won the pennant, but they completely dominated the Royals last night. Hard to believe, but in a game where both teams had such amazing momentum coming in (8-0 vs. pennant winning walk-off!) one of them actually lost the game. And call me a conspiracy theorist, but I personally think it might have had something to do with Madison Bumgarner, rather than some sort of government conspiracy.

After months of moving downward, the October strike zone is suddenly rising.

Everybody’s been writing about the strike zone recently, and that’s for good reason. The strike zone is evolving, and for the first time in the history of baseball, we have the technology to directly record that evolution. Mostly, the bottom of the strike zone is dropping, and that plays some role in shaping the current pitching-dominated era (although exactly how much of a role is a matter of some debate).

What’s most astonishing about the strike zone’s changing definition is the rapidity with which we are witnessing the results. Year after year, the strike zone falls, and this year has been no exception. In this recent article, Jon Roegele chronicles the most dramatic drop in the bottom of the strike zone yet: In the last year, the zone’s real estate has increased by 16 square inches. But even without a rigorous statistical analysis of the zone, you could feel the impact of the strike zone’s accelerating fall in the numerous strikeout records which have been broken, and in the historic seasons of Clayton Kershaw and other pitchers.

With a rested Giants pen and a Royals' starter who exited his last start with shoulder issues, Game Two of the World Series could come down to which group of relievers steps up.

The difference between a tied series and an imposing lead for the Giants will likely be in the grips of the relievers, although for a very different reason on both sides. It’s a 13-year vet who’s happened upon the last two World Series taking on a rookie whose start couldn’t possibly come with more question marks. And then the real show will begin.
