  • The San Francisco Giants gave the Kansas City Royals a taste of reality in the first game of the World Series. Many have compared the Royals to the Colorado Rockies of 2007. That team was on a hot streak and looked unbeatable until they faced the battle tested Boston Red Sox and got swept in four games that year. There could possibly be a repeat performance by San Francisco. They started out hot as they scored three runs against James Shields in the first inning. The route then continued in the fourth and seventh inning as they scored two runs apiece in each inning. Madison Bumgarner continued his solid postseason as he carried a 32-inning road shutout streak which ended in the seventh inning afterSalvador Perez hit a home run. The Giants won 7-1. Game 2 on Wednesday will feature Jake Peavy of the Giants against Yordano Ventura of the Royals.

I would take a flier on Hart as a spring training invitee, certainly no guaranteed money. Could bounce back like Morse did after leaving spacious Safeco Field. I do wonder whether he could still play the OF?

I do not see Headley and Rasmus signing any one year deals. Not interested in Morales or Hart.

MLB trade rumors released their offseason outlook for the Tribe yesterday, along with arbitration estimates for eligible players. They do a very accurate job with these, typically.

Chiz: 2.2M
Scrabble: 1.9M
Tomlin: 1.7M
Shaw: 1.5M
Carrasco: 1.4M

Tomlin seems a little high and Carrasco a little low to me, but like I said, these are typically pretty accurate.
