3 elimination wins on the road in Cincinnati.
3 elimination wins in the NLCS.
And we're back in the Series.
Ideally I'll have time tomorrow for a more detailed post; my look at the history of SFG in the World Series will go up at the other place and I'll link to it at the very least - but for now I'll say this; I picked us to lose to the Reds in 5; I picked us to lose to the Cards in 7.
I'll keep going.
We lose to the Tigers in 7. There's no reason to think Zito beats Verlander in either game 1 or 5 (anyone can beat anyone, but it's an enormous mismatch, an all time mismatch - I'd have to run the numbers but I'd bet Zito is an all time bad game one starting WS pitcher) meaning we need to win 4 out of the other 5 games to take the series. 4 out of 5 is not the side you want to play.
It's close, both teams are sub 90 pythagorean win teams, making it the second worst WS in history; you can't call either side more than a slight favorite.
But honesty compels me to pick the Tigers.
Not that I care even a tiny bit.
The Giants Win the Pennant. Again.
