Description: Giants starter Madison Bumgarner will look to help give San Francisco a 3-2 series lead, heading back to Kansas City.
Insight: This is the guy the Giants want on the mound in this pivotal Game 5, as Bumgarner went seven strong innings in Game 1, allowing only one run on three hits, and struck out five. After winning the NLCS MVP Award, Bumgarner will look to earn those honors in the World Series as well.

Description: Giants manager Bruce Bochy said Friday the team is discussing the possibility to start Madison Bumgarner in Game 4 of the World Series on short rest according to Comcast SportsNet Bay Area.
Insight: If the Giants win Game 3 then it seems unlikely Bochy will use his ace for Game 4 on short rest, but if the Giants lose, it is on the table. Bumgarner would also be available to start Game 7 on short rest if he starts Game 4. Right now, Ryan Vogelsong is slated to start Game 4.

Description: Giants starter Madison Bumgarner will likely not be rattled in the NL Wild Card game like Johnny Cueto was a season ago.
Insight: Bumgarner is one of the most poised 25-year-old pitchers there is in the game and there certainly isn't one more fiery. Just about a week ago, he basically challenged headcase Yasiel Puig to a fight. San Francisco didn't have many choices as to who to start for this game, but they have the right guy on the mound.
