I think Cain is definitly good for a win (thought the same about Verlander though), and every other matchup seems like its a toss up. Scutaro and the Panda are killin it and Posey looked a little better tonight. Jumpin ship to the Giants bandwagon. lol... Man I wish the Rays woulda made it...
Quote:Verlander struggled in two starts as a rookie against St. Louis in 2006 and was even worse against the Giants this time, falling to 0-3 with a 5.14 ERA in the Fall Classic.

I wouldn't be surprised if either team dominates. I'm a huge Leyland fan and Cabrera is awesome but I'll be rooting hard for my Giants. Too many people here are sleeping on the Giants...SF in 7.
