Your Phillies/Giants NLCS Game One Open Thread


Roy Halladay and Tim Lincecum are getting most of the pre-Game-1 attention. As well they should. Two game-changers, pure and simple. But, one has to lose. Ok, both can get no decisions, but one of their teams has to lose.

I'm biased. Offense: Advantage Phillies, even if their bats have gone silent at times this season. Picked the Phils to win it all when they were down seven to Atlanta; still do.

I'll tell you what, though: If Pat Burrell has a big game tonight, he best not head over to the Irish Pub like he always used to. He already had at least one bottle flung at his head there. It'll be Thunderdome if he shows his face in Center City after hitting a game-winner.

Real talk.
