Player Notes

  • Gordon has RBI double, run scored in finale
    Alex Gordon went 2-for-3 with an RBI double and a run scored in the Royals' World Series Game 7 loss to the Giants on Wednesday.

    Advice: After falling behind 2-0, Gordon delivered the biggest hit of the night for the Royals when he doubled in Billy Butler from first in the second inning. He also had their second-biggest hit when he singled off Madison Bumgarner to represent the tying run in the ninth, winding up on third after a couple of errors. Unfortunately for him and the Royals he was left on third to end the game. Gordon will be back in the Royals' outfield next year looking for a return to the Series. Rotoworld.com

  • Guthrie lasts just 3 1/3 innings in Game 7
    Jeremy Guthrie couldn't make it out of the fourth inning in Wednesday's World Series Game 7, exiting after allowing three runs over 3 1/3 innings in the loss.

    Advice: Guthrie loaded the bases with no outs in the top of the second inning, prompting manager Ned Yost to get a reliever up, but after Guthrie escaped with just a couple of sacrifice flies Yost left him in. That was until the fourth, when he left runners on first and third with one out. Reliever Kelvin Herrera allowed an RBI single to the next batter, charging Guthrie with a third run and saddling him with the loss. He didn't walk a batter while striking out three. Guthrie will be back in KC next season for the final year of his three-year contract signed after the 2012 season. Rotoworld.com

  • Bumgarner wins World Series MVP, sets record
    Madison Bumgarner was named World Series MVP and set a postseason record for innings pitched along the way, tossing five scoreless innings in relief and earning the win in the Giants' Game 7 victory Wednesday.

    Advice: The left-hander finished 3-0 in the World Series with the win. The previous record for innings pitched in a single postseason was 48 1/3 innings, so Bumgarner's 52 2/3 innings smashed that record with relative ease. That he gave up just six runs in the entire postseason, and just one in 21 World Series innings, was icing on the cake. Bumgarner won his first World Series MVP award on the heels of his first NLCS MVP award, and the ring was his third in five full seasons. The scariest part is that, at 25 years old, he may still be getting better as a pitcher. Rotoworld.com
