Posted by MikeT23 on 10/12/2010 5:44:00 PM (view original):I'm pretty sure he does. Other facts (with small words used for Mike): the Giants split the series with the Phillies 3-3 in the regular season. Sanchez beat 'em twice, and Oswalt lost twice. Halladay ERA v. the Giants is over 7 .
I'm not sure melo follows baseball.
Heh. First of all, Oswalt was 1-0 againt the Giants with the Phillies - he lost 3 starts against them in Houston - and never gave up more than 3 ER in a start. The Astros scored 5 runs in those 3 games combined. Yeah, you guys owned him...
Halladay's ERA vs. the Giants? At a glance, he has one start against them in the last 6 years. Yeah, it was a poor one this year, but talk about cherrypicking and small sample sizes. Your other stuff based on the postseason to date falls into the same category.
I'm a Phillies fan, so I'll admit my bias. I certainly don't buy the previously presented idea that this will be a quick and easy series for the Phillies - but to suggest that the Giants have "every advantage" over the Phillies is just... wow.
