The Giants vs. Cubs: Predictions from the SportsLine projection model.
Read the full text version.
The Giants beat the Cubs 1-0 on the road last night, the first time the Giants have done so in five years. Even though they were 2-6-1 against their divisional rivals prior to that, the Giants are now 3-5 against the Cubs. As an independent league team, the Giants won four straight to close the season. Now they face a Cubs team that is still in the NL Central, a team that got an impressive win at home against the Brewers on Saturday by scoring three runs in the fifth inning.
The Cubs were the worst team in baseball this season in their division according to Baseball Prospectus, and I don’t think anyone anticipated much tougher going against them. The Cubs’ record didn’t even play a significant role in Giants’ decisions to come back from 2-7 and play the Dodgers and Red Sox. When the Giants finished the first half tied for 100 games back of the Dodgers, there were some Giants fans, myself included, who were concerned about the Giants being a few wins down from the NL Central winning the division.
However, I think we can all look back at the last four seasons and recognize that the Giants have had the best record since 2001. After a year of injuries, one of the most important factors in 2008 was the development of the bullpen, and it’s no coincidence that the Giants are now winning their division in large part because of the development of their bullpen. The Giants bullpen is the best in baseball, and the team is doing a lot of things to try to improve what that bullpen can do right now.
So even though the Giants lose to the Dodgers last night in a game that probably will be remembered much more for Dodgers starter Rich Hill than how the Giants started the game, the Giants won the game in many ways. In addition to the victory, the Giants got their bullpen going, and now the Giants don’t have to worry about injuries and bullpen pressure. The Giants won the series finale despite having their best team in a long time, and it’s likely that it would have been closer if not for the injury to David Ross.
Why you should back the Giants?
The Giants should be a team to watch. They have the most exciting front office in professional sports. The team has great leadership and has shown an amazing belief in the direction the team has taken in recent times. They should be a dynasty team.
When Giants owner John Mara came into the league in the ’80s in the hopes of becoming an expansion franchise, he was on the verge of becoming one of the worst franchises in baseball history. He and the team ownership wanted to be baseball’s first expansion team, and their hope of a championship was being shattered with his first season. And even the fans’ hopes were being dashed when the Giants finished in last place for the next two seasons, before winning their second straight World Series in 1992.
With the team’s ownership changing, it was easy to see why the team was doomed, but I think we all agree that the team’s fortunes have been brightened since then. But before that, in the late ’80s, the team was in a slump for what would be the franchise’s first few years as an expansion franchise and they weren’t making any noise.
One thing that helped was The Newbie. The Giants debuted as an expansion team in 1983 and in 1987, they became one of the most exciting teams in Major League Baseball. In the second half of the 1987 season, their pitching and performance was what everyone was looking at for the next few years.
In 1988, they had a great regular season and a surprise playoff run, getting swept in the first round. But with two more years to go in the ’88 season, the team was on the verge of another losing season.
They weren’t quite good enough to make the playoffs and the team was left flat, but with the Giants coming back together, it was a positive sign that the team had picked up another player as a free agent. They added second baseman David Wright, whom the Giants had signed through the 1988 season and then signed him for that year for $1. (Wright was a free agent that year as well, so he got paid $1 million.
How to choose Giants vs. Cubs on SportsLine
How to Choose Giants vs.
Today is Saturday. I just woke up. I want to watch baseball. I had an interesting morning in Chicago. Here are the games listed on ESPN.
This is one of the few games that I don’t get too excited about. It’s not because I don’t think the Giants have much of a chance. I just can’t get behind the Giants after the first four games. As usual Chicago has been the same way – even last night was an average night for them. I think maybe they got a win over San Diego at least. The Giants are always the team that doesn’t get a win and then they are supposed to make it interesting. I do believe Chicago has an opportunity to make it interesting if the Chicago Cubs lose tonight. Maybe the Chicago Cubs win. Maybe Chicago wins and they come back to San Francisco the next week or the week after that and they win. I’m going to say I like the Giants. I feel they have a chance. They have a good shot at winning it all. The Cubs are the toughest team to play today, but if they lose, at least they could win the game. You have to remember Chicago is in first place. They are favored by 13. 3 games to the Giants. This game should come down to which team has the best pitching. The Giants have pitching that can do no harm in that game. But if the Cubs win, I’m sure that the Giants would be a tough out. I think it would be a tough game and that could decide the winner. I think the Giants may do just fine.
This game is all about pitching. The Cubs have been great in their first four games. But that’s not going to continue. After the first four games, they have two wins over Tampa Bay and one win against Seattle. They have only won four games in their last fourteen games. You can see they are having the toughest time against them. It’s not like the Giants don’t have good pitching. They’ve had seven dominant performances through the season. But this is a very tough matchup. They are the more dominant team, but they still aren’t quite as tough.
Tips of the Day in Computer Games
This week, I’m taking a look back at the best advice of the day that was presented at the last major industry-wide event, and presenting the top ten tips that I think would serve as great starting points for any aspiring programmer.
I’ll be bringing something interesting to this column as well, since I wrote an article about the best tips around a week ago on how you should keep a good eye on the latest game changes before they become completely out there and available for use.
If you don’t have that article, you can take a look at it here.
To make this article as complete as possible, I’ve also added some additional data about how frequently a game was updated, what changes were made to it, and how many new games were released during the most important time period when these changes were being taken into effect.
