Pablo Sandoval not only has baseball's neatest nickname, Kung Fu Panda has a World Series MVP award to go along with it.
Sandoval took home the trophy following the San Francisco Giants' sweep of Detroit, hitting .500 with three home runs, a double and four RBIs in 16 Series at-bats.
"It's just an incredible moment you're never going to forget," he said.

Finally pressed in the World Series, the San Francisco Giants finished off a most unexpected and stunning sweep.
Marco Scutaro delivered one more key hit this October, hitting a go-ahead single with two outs in the 10th inning that lifted the Giants over the Detroit Tigers 4-3 in Game 4 on Sunday night.
American League Triple Crown winner Miguel Cabrera left the Detroit Tigers’ clubhouse without speaking to reporters following his team’s 2-0 loss to San Francisco in Game 3 of the World Series, and manager Jim Leyland wants to know why.
Cabrera popped out with the bases loaded in the fifth inning and went 1 for 4 Saturday night. He is 2 for 9 (.222) with an RBI in the Series. Read More

Detroit Tigers right-hander Max Scherzer and Giants righty Matt Cain didn’t need to know the outcome of Saturday’s World Series game to understand that when they take the mound Sunday the stakes will be high. Both starters couldn’t wait to take advantage of an opportunity to give their team a much-needed — or must-have victory — on tonight in Game 4.
“I absolutely relish it,” Scherzer said.
The Giants took a 3-0 lead in the seven-game series with Saturday’s win. Read More
To those unfamiliar with the managerial genius of the Giants’ Bruce Bochy, the decision to turn to Tim Lincecum with two outs in the sixth inning of Game 3 of the World Series on Saturday night might have seemed a tad overzealous.
Sure, Lincecum has been dynamite out of the bullpen this fall, but it’s not like the wheels were falling off for Ryan Vogelsong. He likely could have gotten the same fly ball to right field and at least started the seventh. Read More
Bruce Bochy heads down the stairs that lead from the clubhouse to the dugout, greeting each player he passes along the way.
Whether friendly during a winning streak or firm after a tough loss, the Giants have come to rely on one thing when it comes to their manager: Boch, as they call him, has their best interests at heart.
Yet this year tested Bochy like no other in nearly two decades on the top dugout step. Read More

OK, so even Bruce Bochy has to grudgingly admit that his Giants are on a World Series roll.
"I'll say this: The club is playing well," the manager said.
Well enough to become the first team to throw consecutive Series shutouts in nearly a half-century.
Well enough to blank Miguel Cabrera and the Detroit Tigers 2-0 on a chilly Saturday night for a commanding 3-0 lead. Read More
