I'm so tired of hearing that the Giants have just been getting lucky this postseason. They had the lowest ERA in the regular season, it's not just luck that their postseason opponents have had such a hard time getting hits against them. And as far as their offense, it's not like they just have a bunch of nobodies who are suddenly getting lucky hits. A lot of the Giants postseason stars are established great hitters who all seemed to go through a slump at the same time in the beginning/middle of this season. Juan Uribe, Freddy Sanchez, and Edgar Renteria all have good hitting in their past, and they got out of their collective slump in the postseason. However, the Rangers appear to have a shitty bullpen, so that part is pretty lucky I guess.
Um I don't know if you've noticed but Lincecum pitched worse than Cliff Lee. In fact he pitched much worse but was bailed out by some timely defense and some luck. In the same fashion Cain pitched about the same as Wilson but was fortunate enough to have a home run (or what would be a homerun in any other park) bounce back into play. That isn't good pitching that is luck.
Meanwhile on offense I have to talk about broken bat doubles and Vlad Guerrero in outfield (admittedly the Rangers choice). Now none of this changes the margin in either game but the lucky plays early on is what got them to the points that changed the game.
