I’m big on the Giants.  Yep, I’m HUGE on the Giants.  Giants Dodgers Padres Rockies Diamondbacks  They’ve got a full year of Buster Posey, Madison Bumgarner, and they’ve got some potential breakthrough talent (Brandon Belt).  Even if Huff drops off a bit this year, they still have the makings of a 95-win team in that [...]

Take a look at the win probability graph for last night’s loss from Fangraphs: It’s almost as if this graph, for last night’s game, might as well illustrate the way the Redbirds’ season has gone in 2010. Started out strong, had a couple of early hiccups where the offense sputtered a bit, but ultimately ran [...]

NLDS St. Louis Cardinals (90-66) versus Los Angeles Dodgers (93-64) NLDS Colorado Rockies (88-68) versus Philadelphia Phillies (90-66) —– The Phillies and Dodgers continue to play similar to the Cards, that is, relatively poorly compared to their prior months.  Philly is 4-6 in their last ten, with the Cards and Dodgers both 5-5.

Let’s round out the NL before jumping into the postseason. Los Angeles Dodgers – The return of Manny Ramirez pretty much sealed up this division for the Dodgers.  Clayton Kershaw has big-league experience on his resume now, and will confound NL West hitters with his nasty stuff.  Joe Torre must be cautious to keep his [...]
