Those of us fortunate enough to stay up late and are not cable customers in NYC got to see about as entertaining a baseball game as you are ever going to see. The game went back and forth all night as both teams gave it their best shot. In the end, the Giants outlasted their opponent and took a huge 3-1 lead in the NLCS. If Lincecum can duplicate his game against the Phillies in a rematch with Halladay, this series could be over without going back to Philadelphia.
And that is exactly what this Fan is going to pick:
- The Giants earned the NL title, ending both the Phillies reign and capping a most improbable season. Lincecum and Halladay are both great and perhaps this becomes a battle of the bullpens. But the Giants win.
