Tim Lincecum Was a Playoff Beast and Hopes San Francisco Is Smoking

Was there a better pairing between player and city than Tim Lincecum and San Francisco? The diminutive pitcher went from Cy Young winner to World Series stud with stellar pitching in October. Lincecum tossed eight innings of one-run ball allowing just three hits while striking out 10 in a Game 5 win over the Rangers….Read More

Brian Sabean Acquisitions Keyed Giants’ World Series Run

Though the San Francisco Giants pitching staff was consistently one of the best in baseball, their offense had been a sore spot and more of an oxymoron the past few years than a threat. Calling them punchless would have been an understatement; Pablo Sandoval led them last year with 25 home runs and 90 RBIs…Read More

Cliff Lee Lets Rangers Down, Freddy Sanchez Lifts Giants Up

Cy Young Award winners Cliff Lee and Tim Lincecum were set to square off in Game 1 of the World Series between the Rangers and Giants. The matchup between the aces should have produced a 2-1 game with an over-under run total line of 4.5, and the wise better would have gone with the under….Read More

Rangers vs. Giants World Series Is a Major League Snoozefest

Better check the thermostat in hell. Consider this baseball’s version of Haley’s Comet colliding with a white whale. The Texas Rangers are playing the San Francisco Giants in the World Series?!? I haven’t been this confused since I first listened to a song by America (if anyone knows what “Ventura Highway” or “Sister Golden Hair”…Read More
