Score Tracker compares the Giants and Rangers

Here’s a look at the Giants and Rangers, using Score Tracker to compare their wins and losses in the 2010 postseason. Like everything in Texas, the Rangers have done everything big, with only one game decided by 2 runs or less. In contrast, the Giants have been anything but Giant, taking more of a “conservationist” approach to their games. With the exception of their 6-1 loss and their 3-0 “blowout,” every game has been decided by 2 runs or less.

For the most part, Tim Lincecum and Cain throw the same pitches, at roughly the same velocity and with similar frequency.

Phillies vs. Giants – It’s On!

2 great staffs.  The Giants have a slightly deeper rotation 1-5, and a better closer.  But facing Halladay has got to scare Giants fans…

Yankees Rangers – It’s On!

The Rangers would seem to have a big edge in their starting rotation on paper, but the Yankees have the benefit of starting with their best guy on the mound…

How Good Are The Giants?

A classic “pitching and defense” team.  But can they manage to get a hit off of Halladay, Oswalt, and Hammels?  And, if they do, can they get to home plate?

How Good Are The Yankees?

Gotta love the offense but the mediocre pitching and defense is somewhat disconcerting.  Then again, they pitched pretty damn well against the Twins…
