Lincecum Tonight.

Thursday, October 21, 2010

We scored first.

We scored 3 runs.

30 times in LCS history a team has gone up 3 games to 1.  24 times, that team won the pennant.

In fact, in the history of the postseason of the three major sports with 7 game series - MLB, NBA, NHL, with a sample size of nearly 500 series from which to draw - teams that go up 3 games to 1 win that series at a .920 clip. 

That's what's up. 

Lincecum tonight.

Those were the NLCS numbers - these are for both leagues.
