By Larry Fine KANSAS CITY Missouri (Reuters) – A different kind of Major League Baseball dynasty has emerged. The San Francisco Giants are champions of a new age of parity, the best at juggling budget and talent, and managing the changing tides of a tumultuous 162-game regular season. Despite missing key players due to injury in pitcher Matt Cain and center fielder Angel Pagan, the Giants squeaked into the playoffs and won a third World Series title in five years with Wednesday’s Game Seven win over the Kansas City Royals. …

Madison Bumgarner is a throwback to the days before pampering and pitch counts. Tall, with droopy hair and the look of a gunslinger, he strung together a sequence of World Series performances seldom seen since the games were played in daylight, kids in school listened on radios and Sandy Koufax, Bob Gibson and Mickey Lolich dominated. ”I don’t know if it’ll ever be done again,” Jeremy Affeldt said after Bumgarner came out of the bullpen with five scoreless innings to lead San Francisco over the Kansas City Royals 3-2 Wednesday for the Giants’ third World Series title in five years. In an age when arms are treated like fragile investments and fear of Tommy John surgery fills every clubhouse, Bumgarner just wanted the ball as often as possible.

In Kansas City, Game 7 of the World Series conjures up memories of Bret Saberhagen’s brilliance, a St. Louis meltdown and the only Royals championship in 1985. There was Willie McCovey’s game-ending lineout that was oh-so-close to being a Series-winning hit in 1962 and another loss 40 years later by Barry Bonds & Co. to the Angels. Be it Babe Ruth, Jack Morris or Mariano Rivera, the moments created in an all-or-nothing game resonate through baseball history.

The San Francisco Giants and the Kansas City Royals — who are battling for this year’s World Series title — have rosters featuring whites, blacks, Latinos and Asians. Just down the highway from where the Major League Baseball champion will be crowned this week, the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum tells a different story — one of segregation and struggle. While some black players — like Jackie Robinson, who broke the color barrier in 1947 with the then-Brooklyn Dodgers — rose to the sport’s highest heights, others never made it to the big leagues. Frustrated by the unofficial ban, black players moved to form their own leagues.

For more than a quarter-century Tim McCarver was as much a part of October baseball as champagne celebrations. On three networks, across four decades with four different play-by-play partners, McCarver was a near constant on the World Series soundtrack with his unique style as an analyst and familiar Tennessee twang. McCarver had been on the job for every World Series since 2000 before going on semiretirement after last year’s Fall Classic and being replaced in the Fox booth by Tom Verducci and Harold Reynolds. McCarver called 24 World Series overall, including all but two since 1989.
