Game 1

Early in the first game of the World Series, I was about to start referring to Cliff Lee as "Gentile Koufax" (Goyfax)? But then the weak-hitting Giants pounded him and that went out the window.

I might have overshot it in saying Giants in 7; they are now firmly in control of the Series.

Sure, the Rangers lost the first game of the ALCS, but it was very different circumstances. They had gone up big and their bullpen blew it, plus they had their second starter going and still had Lee to look forward to. Now, they gave their ace a two-run lead, which he lost spectacularly, and have to go downhill pitching-wise. The Giants have momentum, better pitching, and hot hitters. It's looking good for San Francisco.
