Lee started Game 1 and Game 5 and went 2-0 with a 2.81 ERA 16 IP 13 H

So because the Yankees won the series Lee is overrated? Makes sense.

Hamilton - 1 hr short of league lead last year with a 285 avg

Lee - the guy had a 3.16 era last year and 2.40 the year before...? You do realize pitchers pitch max 2 games out of that 7 right?

Your reasonings were pretty weak

Funny looking it up. He faced the Yanks in the 2010 playoffs, 8 ip, 0 ER, 2 hits and 2009 went 2-0 with 16 ip, 13 hits

I don't think he's overrated at all. He's an offensive Dynamo that goes into a slump every now and then. in a season as long as a baseball season, one would think thats pretty normal.

Pitchers max 3 games if it goes to 7.

Yeah, ok. That is why you continue to leave bait comments about them like calling them irrelevant, especially when the 49ers have a better history than your Giants...

As for Hamilton, this is a good deal for both.

If they trade for Soriano and sign Hamilton, that'd be the streakiest offense ever.

They can, yes, but almost always seem to pitch game 5 if they pitch game 1. I suppose you're right in a sence (that they can) but just typically don't pitch 3 times

For example, the series we were discussing I believe Lee started games 1 and 5. So he only had 2 games

Until a major source says this is true I'm still not convinced this Signing actually happened.

According to MLB source the Angels are in SERIOUS negotiations with Josh Hamilton. No deal has been reached as of yet.

If that's true then it's a pure L.A. market play by Arte

Confirming @joeontheradio report, industry source says Angels are indeed getting close on a deal with Hamilton. Not quite done.
That lineup would be unreal.

Holy mother of god.

Trout
Pujols
Hamilton



But their rotation is still a problem, hah...

Wow..Angels roster would look pretty deadly with the addition of Hamilton. Trout/Pujols/Hamilton/Trumbo those are some talented dudes.
