As in, so good they could not be in the right state of mind.
Madison Bumgarner proved again why nobody can touch his brilliance when it comes to the Postseason once again. This guy only allowed 4 hits, 1 walk, and had 10 strikeouts in a Complete Game, 109 pitch, masterpiece in a one game playoff where you couldn't ask for anything much better. This guy was bananas, out of this world, ridiculous, but most of all calm and collected.
Who else do we know of who could come into hostile territory and pitch a lights out game similar to this as to what Madison Bumgarner did? The only thing that comes to my mind is how Cliff Lee performed in Game 1 of the 2009 World Series and he didn't even have a shutout. Yes, Roy Halladay threw a no hitter, but it was at home in front of his home crowd, and it wasn't an elimination game. How good can Bumgarner be? Just look at tonight's game and don't tell me he's not a stud.
This guy Brandon Crawford is O.K. too. I mean, he was only batting 7th in the lineup and decided to hit the first grand slam as a shortstop in the history of postseason baseball. Take that Alex Rodriguez!
This Giants ball club is just a scary bunch in general. When it comes to elimination games they can't be stopped this decade winning every single time they are on the brink because they have never lost a postseason series in the 2010's! Think about that for a second. The other crazy thing that's going to happen, they are going back to Washington where they ended that teams last playoff appearance run when they spoiled a 2-0 series lead back in 2012 coming back in classic comeback fashion. I bet Nationals fans are thrilled beyond compare because they totally want to see the Giants once again when it comes to postseason play.
All in all, this 8-0 game wasn't anything special except the Grand Slam and the Bumgarner Brilliance. But let me just say something to all you people who feel like the Giants aren't capable of getting it done come postseason time in 2014. Just go back to 2010 & 2012. They were underdogs then too.
