  1. Re: Bumgarner, it’s worth noting that as the velocity came back late in the year, his K-rate started to slowly inch back up, culminating in him striking out about a batter per inning in September. I feel confident about the Giants putting him out there in Game 4.

  2. “With Billy Wagner injured, the Braves have put LEFTY Takashi Saito back on the roster, giving them a lot of situational flexibility.”

    Seriously? Love this site, but you guys seriously need some better proof-readers on the staff. These glaring daily mistakes makes the writers look BUSH LEAGUE.

  3. Hilarious line of the day:
    “Look for plenty of commentary on Bumgarner’s lack of playoff experience given the way absence of such experience recently has been a big problem for pitchers like Lincecum and Roy Halladay.”

  4. Nice summary – agree that things set up very nicely for Giants and am cautiously optimistic that Bochy might, one day, sit on his hands and not worry about match-ups so much when someone other than Lincecum is hurling… almost screwed it up again last night, which was a whole lot of fun to watch, otherwise.

  5. Agree. It only substantiates the premise that stat gurus don’t actually watch the games.

  6. I think the Giants biggest edge over the Braves was supposed to be their defense, not offense. That has come to pass.

  7. And Matt Cain and Jonathan Sanchez

  8. And also in Game Four of the Philly series, and Game Three of the Yankee series.
    (Shake it up a little.)

    On Rye.

  9. Not as bad as TBS, which last night showed a graphic prior to Posey’s first AB detailing his success in the ALCS.

  10. That depends on whose defense you’re referring to as one has figured prominently (although embarrassingly).

  11. Bumgarner: 95 MPH in first inning.
