Bruce Bochy has plans to troll Royals during spring training game
The San Francisco Giants still have a lot of the same players on their roster from when they won the World Series in 2014, and manager Bruce Bochy may call attention to that to bring back some bad memories for the Kansas City Royals this weekend.
It was the Royals that the Giants beat in a dramatic series more than four years ago, and World Series MVP Madison Bumgarner came on to close out Game 7 with five innings of two-hit relief. Bumgarner is scheduled to pitch against Kansas City in Sunday’s spring training game, and Bochy said he might start the exact same infield behind the left-hander that the Giants had in Game 7.
Talk about the ultimate troll job. #SFGiants are playing #royals on Sunday. It's Bumgarner's day. Now that Pablo is here, Bochy is thinking of starting the same infield and pitcher that ended Game 7 of the 2014 World Series. (KC can leave Whit Merrifield at home).

That would be cold, Bruce. Keep in mind that Bochy recently announced he will retire after the 2019 season, so perhaps taking shots at opponents will be part of his farewell tour. It’s all in good fun, right?
