The Giants tied it up last night, winning a tight one, 4-3. So we've had two tight games, both won by the Giants by scores of 4-3; and we've had two slugfests, both won by the Angels (11-10, 10-4). I wonder if this World Series may end up being like the 1960 Series, in which the Yankees scored 57 total runs in the entire series, versus the 27 total runs scored by the Pirates -- with the Pirates winning the series in seven. Wow.

And maybe Barry Bonds should stop hitting home runs. So far this season the Giants are undefeated, going 7-0, when he does not hit the ball out. When he does hit a homer, the Giants are 2-5. (Weird stat courtesy Jayson Stark at ESPN.)
