This picture is not the only reason that we picked the Giants tonight, but if Kate Upton is rocking San Fran, how can ya NOT be on that train!!!
Game three at maybe THE most gorgeous ballpark in all of baseball, and we're rocking the Giants over the Royals. Tim Hudson is 39 years old and has not been lights out in the playoffs, but after waiting his entire career to get to the World Series (16 years, 3 teams and 457 starts), expect a little magic. On the other side, Jeremy Guthrie had one pretty sweet outing in the playoffs, but that was at home, and he might find a bunch of problems on the road. Like batting for one. With no DH in the National League park, Guthrie will have to hit, and Kaycee will have to sit Billy Butler, their #5 hitter, and a big run producer. Butler might get one at bat in a pinch hitting role, as opposed to three or four as the DH. HUGE problem for Kansas City. You not only lose your big bopper, but it also impacts Mike Moustakas in a BIG way since he moves down to the #8 hole, just in front of the pitcher, and he will see NOTHING that is hittable. Two more little gems. San Francisco is 4-0 at home in the playoffs this year, and A.L. teams are only 7-15 in N.L. parks since 2006. Gimme half a Benjamin on the Giants.
No need to cry about an INT by San Diego that was taken away by a penalty. Okay, a few tears. Of course, Peyton throws a TD right after that which helped the spread go over, and slice a pair of nickels from the bank account. After doing the math and pressing the proper buttons, the calculator says that +$878 is the current figure.
