Great Moments In Baseball History: The 1974 A’s Beat Dodgers To Win Third Straight World Series Title
It doesn’t happen often: In fact, it’s only been done by two clubs in MLB history. Winning three straight World Series is an amazing task, and only the New York Yankees and the Oakland Athletics can lay claim to the achievement. The 1974 A’s were a crazy team, of course, but they proved themselves on the field … again.
There wasn’t a lot to celebrate between 1971 and 1987 for the San Francisco Giants, as the team endured a 15-season absence from the National League playoffs.

So, it was a young star—Bobby Bonds—who led this Giants squad to the first National League West division title in team history.
Many current San Francisco Giants fans won’t remember the team’s first appearance in the World Series after moving from New York City, but the 1962 team was something special: Willie Mays was just one of many iconic players on this squad that took the mighty New York Yankees to the ninth inning of Game Seven before coming up just short.

An 11th-round Draft choice by the Dodgers out of high school, Los Angeles knew it was taking a risk by drafting Joc Pederson, as he had pretty high bonus demands and had already committed to play baseball at USC. But the Dodgers were OK with the risk that late, and OK with giving him a hefty bonus, and now five years later it looks as though it’s all going to pay off.

There’s a contemporary push to place starting pitchers in the same realm as everyday players, which is confusing as it is annoying.
Everyone expected Clayton Kershaw to pitch a shutout, and he did – a unanimous choice for the NL Cy Young Award. Corey Kluber edging out Felix Hernandez for the AL pitching prize, that was no […]
I have remained (for the most part) quiet about this, mainly because there’s no win. Today’s Topic: Baseball Whiners.* * This does NOT apply to all. Only YOU can determine if I’m talking about you. […]
