 In a classic “good news, bad news, good news” situation, the San Francisco Giants won the 2014 World Series, and pitcher Madison Bumgarner won the MVP award.

His prize was a 2015 Chevy Colorado truck, which was recalled a couple of weeks ago by GM for faulty airbags. GM caught most of them before they left the assembly plant.

So good news: Bumgarner is going to be fine.
