Giants drop Game 2 to Phillies, head home for Game 3

According to every baseball axiom, the Giants should feel very, very satisfied. As if they just devoured a cheesesteak grease bomb with the works. Full Story

That throw was three feet wide. No where near on-target. It sucks that it is starting to sink in, just how good that Phillies team is. They play mediocre ball and still win by 5.

The Giants should win all three of their home
games and finish it off. Nex stop??
I do hope the Yankees are not the AL champs again.

Do you seriously think the Giants will sweep three games in a row from the Phillies? Be honest and try to be objective.

Of course. Obviously you are not really a Giants fan. There is absolutley no reason why
they cannot sweep the Phillies at home. So there. FEAR THE BEARD!!!!

Go drop some more LSD. The Giants are going to the world series.

Of course I'm not a Giants fan. Gee, you're a quick study. I can give you many reasons the Phillies are likely to prevail, not the least of which is Roy Halladay, Roy Oswalt, Cole Hamels and an offense that has considerably more firepower than the Giants. Regardless of who goes to the World Series, you're delusional if you think it will be a sweep. Don't get too excited about Halladay's hiccup in game one. Lincecum wasn't sharp, either and the odds that Halladay will lose two in the same series are slim. The Phillies have the best record in baseball this year but more importantly, this team is post-season experienced. The current Giants' roster is an upstart and if they prevail, it won't be because they are the better team. Rather, it will be viewed as an upset.(You and I both know the Phillies are better top to bottom, your homerism just won't allow you to admit it.)

The Phillies, even with the offense slumping at the time, swept the Reds, who had the best offense in the NL this year. The Giants had trouble dispatching the Braves, who have endured great offensive struggles for the last six weeks of the season. Every game was a one-run difference.

Sounds like you're not too confident in your team, if you have to wish one AL team away. It won't be a problem for you. The Phillies are the heavy favorites anyway.

Thank you for sharing your delusion. As for your first sentence, perhaps you're projecting.

All excellent points, but even beyond that, the Phillies already prevailed easily against the pitcher who presented the greatest threat, Sanchez, not Lincecum. Joe Blanton is the Giants' best hope for another victory in this post-season. Even that isn't a lock and I agree that Roy Halladay isn't likely to lose twice in the same series.

I should clarify what I said about prevailing easily against Sanchez. The Phils actually did most of their scoring against the bullpen, though the Phillies did a nice job of chasing Sanchez through patience and post-season experience. They wore him down, causing him to throw 35 pitches in the first inning.

I didn't mean that and I didn't say that. I just cannot stand the Yankees.
I wouldn't care if the AL champion was anyone else. Know how most Dodger and
Giants fans feel about each other? Well I feel that way about the Yankees.
Never liked them and never will. And they got their butts kicked last night too!!
Yesss!
