Madison Bumgarner in Game 7 of the World Series

Well, you can't say it hasn't been an exciting series.

But man, the stakes tonight are excruciatingly high. Bumgarner will play. He'll be on the mound as soon as the Giants run into trouble, which should be by the second or third inning, if past non-Bumgarner games are any indication.

At the Los Angeles Times, "Royals dominate Giants, 10-0, to force World Series Game 7":

This World Series could come down to one guy, and one question.

Madison Bumgarner, how many pitches can you make in Game 7?

"Maybe 200," he said.

He did not smile, or laugh, or elaborate. If he is the one man that can stand between the Kansas City Royals and the World Series championship, Bumgarner intends to stand tall, and heaven help the man or manager that stands in his way.

The 2014 season comes down to one game. America's darlings remain alive.

And at the San Francisco Chronicle, "Giants’ best bet? Start Bumgarner in Game 7."
