Short-rest starts a good idea in October?

David Schoenfield examines the concept by looking back at the past 10 World Series winners. The 2014 Giants had zero such starts (though Madison Bumgarner did come out of the pen on two days' rest), while the '12 and '10 teams each relied on Tim Lincecum once on short rest. Full results (Insider)

Few people could have predicted Miguel Montero's pinch-hit grand slam on Saturday, but was it the most unlikely in LCS history?

The Giants' even-year mystique is over

For a moment on Tuesday, it looked like the Giants would force a Game 5 against the Cubs, somehow pull out the W and continue the narrative that they know how to win only every other season. But then reality set in, and their Achilles' heel ended their run. Schoenfield: Playoff deception

Should the Giants have stuck with Moore?

It's easy to say yes after the bullpen blew it against the Cubs, but it's worth noting Matt Moore, who was at 120 pitches through eight innings, threw 133 pitches in his near no-hitter earlier this year. Did Bruce Bochy make the right call? What we learned Tuesday
