SAN FRANCISCO - Bruce Bochy is crazy superstitious. Tyler Eifert Jersey . Its a little-known fact about the unflappable San Francisco Giants manager.Mere mention of anything about a dynasty during the World Series made him uncomfortable. He felt equally uneasy when his name got linked to the best skippers of all-time — those Hall of Famers he well could join someday.Bochy doesnt have to worry about a jinx now. After winning its third championship in five seasons, the new label for his team looks as if it will stick.Dynasty blared the front page of the San Francisco Chronicle on Thursday.The Giants closed it out with a 3-2 win in Game 7 at Kansas City on Wednesday night, sealed by Series MVP Madison Bumgarners five shutout innings as a reliever this time.A lot has to go right. First off, it starts with the talent, Bochy said. I mean, you need that, which we have. Then you have to deal with a lot of things maybe during the season. Every manager says, Hey, were fine, we have a good chance to get there if we stay healthy. But that doesnt always happen.In a remarkable every-other-year pattern, San Francisco somehow finds its best form in even years. With new faces and old ones, with castoffs and misfits and some key midseason acquisitions.Few clubs have captured three championships in a five-year span. The last National League team to do it was the St. Louis Cardinals with Stan Musial from 1942-46, so the Giants are the first of the free-agency era.The Oakland Athletics won three straight crowns in the early 1970s, and the New York Yankees captured four in five years from 1996-2000.Still, San Francisco was never considered a favourite or the best team in the regular season any of these times. Twice in this stretch, the Giants missed the playoffs altogether.After a runner-up finish in the NL West to the Dodgers at 88-74, they took the wild-card card route this time.On Wednesday night, Tim Hudson became a champion after a 16-year wait and Michael Morse got there following 10 major league seasons.Its the greatest group of guys I ever played with, Morse said. Its a group of guys who believe in each other and the outcome was a World Series victory.This city has had a football dynasty. So now the storied baseball franchise is doing its best to catch up with the NFL team in town. The Niners ruled in the late 80s and 90s, winning five Super Bowls.A unique element for Bochys latest winning roster is the talented crop of homegrown players who made it happen.There are the big names — Bumgarner, Buster Posey, Pablo Sandoval. And the emerging ones — Brandon Belt, Brandon Crawford, Joe Panik.You look at most of our team — like Joe, me, Buster, Pablo, Belt, Bum. Its loaded with a lot of good players and a lot of players who are pretty similar in kind of their approach to the game and theyre pretty even-keel, said Crawford, the shortstop.Pablos a little bit different but me, Joe, Belt, Bum, Buster, were all pretty levelheaded at any point in the game whatever part of the season it is, whether its playoffs or midway through the regular season. We dont really change. That says a lot with how well weve done in the playoffs and the post-season in recent years, he said.Nothings really too big for us, he added.Eight players have been on all three winning World Series teams: Bumgarner, slugging third baseman Sandoval, Posey and relievers Jeremy Affeldt, Javier Lopez, Santiago Casilla, Sergio Romo and Tim Lincecum. Matt Cain, too, but he was hurt this year.General manager Brian Sabean, longest-tenured in baseball, cant put a finger on why the mix keeps working. He is proud of the core of players who were drafted and came through the system and played such a huge part this time.Its a testament to player development and scouting. Thats what we all hope for, that you can plug your holes from within and build your team from within, Sabean said. Thats a surefire way to kind of keep things moving forward. It prevents you from having to go into the market, whether its free agency or more so the trade market.The Giants survived skids in June and September before winning the wild-card game at Pittsburgh. They then beat Washington in the Division Series and St. Louis in the NL Championship series.It has started with Bochy and his spot-on decision making, from resting the relievers regularly early in the season so hed have every one of them for the October run, to going with Bumgarner at every chance.But you have to play good baseball for six months, whatever, to get there, Bochy said. Once you get there, youve heard guys say, Well, its a crap shoot, but you have to play your best ball. You have to have the pitching. Thats obvious. But youve got to execute.For the Giants, its about every player doing his part and serving a role, because, as Sabean puts it, We dont have a star system here.Its everybodys got to pull on the same chain and everybodys got to be ready to play, he said. They understand the culture.Dynasty or not, Affeldt has solved a potential problem at home.The lefty reliever and Game 7 winner has three young sons — and, now, three championships.My three boys now all get to have rings on their finger, he said, And Im very happy about that. Pat Sims Jersey .J. - Henrik Lundqvist has done more than set a couple of franchise records for the New York Rangers this week. Clint Boling Jersey . Murakami gracefully executed a double triple toe jump and a triple flip jump that put her at the top of a tightly contested race with 64.73 points, just ahead of Li Zijun of China on 62. http://www.officialbengalsprofanatics.com/Black-Friday-John-Ross-Jersey/ . Ortiz hit a pair of two-run homers, including his 400th shot in a Red Sox uniform, and drove in a career high-tying six runs to power Boston past the Houston Astros 10-7 on Saturday night.Glendale, AZ (SportsNetwork.com) - Antoine Vermette scored twice and the Arizona Coyotes downed the Philadelphia Flyers, 4-2, on Monday. Shane Doan and Oliver Ekman-Larsson also lit the lamp while Devan Dubnyk made 30 saves for Arizona, which matched its season high with a third straight victory. R.J. Umberger scored twice 3:02 apart late in the third period, but the Flyers nevertheless fell to 3-2 on their eight-game road trip. Steve Mason, in his first start since Dec. 18, surrendered three goals on 24 shots against. Mark Streit fed Umberger for his first goal with 7:49 remaining in the third, and the Flyers went on a power play less than a minute later. They failed to score with the man advantage but kept the pressure on, and Umberger deflected a Sean Couturier shot into the back of the net with 4:47 left on the clock. Philadelphias best chance in the closing moments came on Claude Girouxs cross-ice pass to Vincent Lecavalier. Lecavalier let a one-timer fly from the right circle, but Dubnyk easily smothered it. Vermettee sealed the win with an empty-netter. Tyler Kroft Jersey. The Coyotes won a faceoff in front of Dubnyk late in the opening period and caught the Flyers on their heels going the other way. Doan let a shot fly from the point that beat Mason with 1:34 left in the stanza. Vermette was originally ruled to have deflected it in, but Doan was credited with the goal after the game. Mason saved a shot through a screen in the second period, but the rebound spun loose and Vermette was there for an easy goal at the 15:31 mark. Flyers forward Scott Laughton was sent off for hooking 2:02 into the third, and on the ensuing power play, Ekman-Larsson posted his ninth goal of the season with a shot from the point. Game Notes Ekman-Larsson has six goals in December ... Philadelphia is 0-for-15 on the power play in its last six games after failing on two chances Monday ... Arizona has won three in a row at home after dropping nine straight ... Mason missed the previous four games with a back injury.
