The even-year dynasty is in full effect. The San Francisco Giants defeated the Kansas City Royals in Game 7 of the 2014 World Series, to claim their 3rd title in five years.

The Giants become the first National League team since the St. Louis Cardinals of the 1960’s to win three titles in a span of five years.

Madison Bumgarner pitched five innings of scoreless relief after the Giants took a 3-2 lead in the top of the 4th. Bumgarner earned Series MVP honors, going 3-0 with an ERA of 0.43 in the Fall Classic.

For Mariners fans, they took to Twitter in disappointment as former Mariner Michael Morse delivered the eventual game-winning RBI in the 4th.

Keep in mind Mariners fans, he is a free agent-to-be again this year. Any chance the Mariners bring him back again? So is Pablo Sandoval, whom I made a case for a few weeks ago.

I loved watching him play in the minors. I love watching him play in San Francisco. He probably doesn’t want to be a full-time DH so he doesn’t make much sense for Seattle right now. But a guy can hope.

So now, the Bud Selig era is coming to an end, Alex Rodriguez is officially off his suspension and in five days, we can start seeing players file for free agency.

The Hot Stove season is underway. It should prove to be a busy offseason for the Seattle Mariners as they look to address their offensive offense problem.

I will leave you tonight with this tweet from the Mariners VP of Marketing Kevin Martinez.
