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.
“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.

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.”
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.
