Yessiree Bob, it’s a classic baseball rivalry rematch for the 2010 World Series: the scrappy, bullpen-rich Giants vs. the lambasting Yankees (31 homers in their first 16 games in the tournament). The series opens tonight in Yankee Stadium, with a sketchy Tim Lincecum against an undefeated C.C. Sabathia. Absentee managers Jason Stapley (Giants) and Paul Salzgeber (Yankees) will be watching eagerly and anxiously as the league champs take the dice table field.
You can follow the action in my Live Dicecasts every night at 10 p.m. eastern right here, or check on the result the following morning. Here’s the complete, up-to-date stats on the Giants (hitting,pitching) and Yanks (hitting,pitching) heading into the Series.
