2014 World Series Predictions
The Giants have lacked the deep pitching that propelled them to the 2010 and 2012 crowns but it has come through when they have needed it, particularly with regards to ace Madison Bumgarner. Their offense wasn't spectacular this season but like their counterparts in Kansas City, they have been clutch with the bat when they have needed to be.
And so what a series we have. This has been a very tough World Series for me to pick as I can find plenty of legitimate reasons to pick either club, and as I think these clubs are relatively even. But I have to go by the slightest of edges with the Giants and it comes down to the managerial position. Ned Yost has gotten away with a whole lot of questionable managerial decisions, and Bruce Bochy may just be the best manager in baseball. In such a tight series, the manager can make the difference.
