History Observed

I am in no way shape or form a SF Giants fan....but....
I love watching sports history and greatness!
In my opinion if you watched the World Series this year you witnessed history and greatness in the authoritative, precise, and passionate pitching of Madison Bumgarner.
Here are some numbers to ponder:
21 innings pitched
74 batters faced of which he struck out 17 and walked 1
291 pitches of which 205 were strikes
Allowed only 9 hits
He was credited with 2 wins and game 7 was logged as a save (I would've started him)
Threw a shut out in game 5 (first time in 11 years that has happened)
He hit 1 home run and allowed the Royals to score only 1 run off his pitching.
His World Series ERA was an astounding .25, yes thats 1/4 run
Named the World Series MVP

Just amazing.....wonder if the A's could pick him up....heck all they would need is a catcher, an outfielder and maybe a first baseman....the rest of the salaries can just go to him :D

Edit...forgot photo credit
