Talking Royals, SF Symphony and answering an e mail from Michael Reisman.
The Giants are also only 1 win away from becoming the team of the decade, and it is only 5 years old.
San Francisco keeps scoring runs without actually getting hits. Insane… All of that and more on this episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.

It is Sunday… time for The Sunday Request.
Is it out of line to call out the bad attendance in Kansas City?
Or is this the result of decades of seeing a bad product.
Breaking down team loyalty in this episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.
Scott Feldman, Jake Peavy, Matt Holliday, Jimmy Paredes, Vidal Nuno, Victor Martinez, Jeff Samardzija and Jason Heyward all added to their totals for Who Owns Baseball?
Soon the Giants will be playing Game 7 of the NLCS.
And if you thought that was going to happen a few days ago, you are a liar.
Hell, if you thought that when the Giants and Reds were tied going into extra innings of Game 3 of the Division Series, I would demand evidence.
The Giants have played five games where if they lost, they would be eliminated.
And because they are still playing, they are clearly 5-0 in those games.
They surpassed the 1981 Dodgers, 2003 and 2004 Red Sox and last year’s Cardinals who all won four do or die games.
(2003 was not a typo. The 2003 Red Sox won three elimination games against the A’s and Game 6 of the ALCS against the Yankees. Had Grady Little managed Game 7 a little differently, they would have had five.)
Only one team ever won six elimination games in the same post season: The 1985 Kansas City Royals wiped out 3-1 leads against the Blue Jays in the ALCS and against the Cardinals in the World Series (with a little help from Don Denkinger.)
A win tonight would have the Giants match the Royals.
If the Giants go on to the World Series and fall behind the Tigers, 3-1, how could any Giants fan be nervous?
