Sports Briefs: 2014 World Series Media Day

(The Gab Four didn't attend Media Day at the 2014 World Series, mainly because there was no Media Day. But had there been, here is what they would have asked members of the Kansas City Royals and San Francisco Giants, sponsored by 3 Spoons Yogurt)

Joe: I would like to ask San Francisco pitchers Jake Peavy and Tim Hudson if they had ever connected before being on the Giants’ staff, since they come from the deep south.

Chris: I would like to ask Alex Gordon if he were forced to dress up as another Gordon for Halloween, who would it be: Gordon from “Sesame Street,” Gordon Shumway or Gordon from the Sprint Framily Plan.

Ralphie: I'd like to ask Bruce Bochy how he felt when they hit the walk-off home run.

Joe: I would like to ask Panda about his nickname: how did you get it, and does it bother you?

Chris: I would like to ask Giants pitcher Javier Lopez how hard it was transitioning from being a right-handed, All-Star catcher, who worked with multiple Cy Young Award winners on the Atlanta Braves’ staff, to being a left-handed relief pitcher.

Ralphie: I'd like to ask Travis Ishikawa what he was thinking when he rounded 3rd base.

Joe: I would like to ask the Royals players if they believe their small ball will still win the series, after the Game 1 shutdown.

Chris: I would like to ask Royals reliever Brandon Finnegan, after becoming the first player to appear in both the World Series and College World Series in the same year, how close he is to appearing in a possible third World Series on his PlayStation.

Ralphie: I'd like to ask Brandon Belt how he felt when he hit the home run in the 18th inning of the NLDS.

Joe: I would like to ask the Royals mascot Slugerrr what is his favorite meat to eat?

Chris: I would like to ask Sergio Romo to discuss what it takes to win a championship, how to block out nervousness and not make mistakes during the most important games of the season with his cousin Tony at the next Romo family picnic.

Ralphie: I'd like to ask Madison Bumgarner how it feels to be the best pitcher in the MLB right now.

Joe: I would like to ask Royals manager Ned Yost if making it to the World Series was a realistic goal for him at the beginning of the year.

Chris: I would like to ask Ned Yost if the Royals ever repaired the manager’s office, including purchasing a new rotary telephone and answering machine, after Hal McRae destroyed them in a bout of violent feng shui in his office during a postgame conference in 1993.

Ralphie: I'd like to ask Eric Hosmer how it feels to have home field advantage in the World Series.

Joe: I would like to as San Francisco Giants mascot Lou Seal just how she came up with such a clever name and has she ever met Hugh Manatee?

Chris: I would like to ask Brett Bochy something profound, considering that he and his dad, Bruce, are the first father/son, manager/pitcher duo in baseball history, and the only questions that come to mind are if they room together on road trips, and if Brett does not have facial hair purely out of rebellion.

Ralphie: I'd like to ask Mike Morse how he felt about hitting the game-tying home run.
