We can not ignore Verlanders' pitch count against the Yankees...Satisfied, Leyland returned to the dugout. Verlander recorded the out he promised, on a Brett Gardner ground ball, to finish with 132 pitches — his most since last year’s ALCS against Texas.  Although he is on a nice roll he is human and is bound to get taxed by at least the 5th inning if not sooner...the Giant bats have been hot and I can see them pull this out at home.....

Even in a 4 or 5 man rotation he does get about the same rest, so that does not even factor...

122 was his pitch count the game b4.At this point i dont think the pitch count is going to have any bearing.He has showed he can handle the pitch counts this year in the playoffs

Haha...7 days rest is very rare so to say it is about the same rest is flat wrong

.....

Verlander pitched on the 16th. It is now 8 days later. Are you joking? He has had at least 3 days more rest than usual, and not enough to screw with him, imo.

Pitch count will have zero impact on his performance....Verlander is at his most vulnerable early in games....longer he is in...the better he gets.

Giants though are a much better contact team than the Yankees and A's. The more balls they put in play the better the chances the Tigers weak defense will make mistakes.

The key to the series is how the Giant starters perform....can't spot the Tigers early leads and must avoid the crooked numbers.

Go ahead and bet the Giants due to Verlander's discount....this is why the site is awesome. Fade away due to stupid reasonings like that.

He always seems to throw harder in the 9 th inning than in the first inning. Can't see a horse like him tiring on the big stage.

You are correct.  He is human and eventually pitch counts will catch up to his arm.  Problem is, that wont be until a few more years.

I have been on JV   4/5 last starts but this stat stood out.

In his career, he is just 6-5 on more than six days of rest, with 7.1 strikeouts per nine innings, well below his 8.4 overall rate.

No way will I lay -175 on the road when the Giants are hitting so well.

Yes that is correct.There have been many games where his fastest pitch has been in the 9th!

I went with under 7.5 k's for the game. SF makes contact more than most teams in the league.

His pitch count 8 days ago has nothing to do with The Giants being red hot and just flat out hitting him.  Giants at home having good at bats, simple as that.   Nothing at all to do with pitch count over a week ago for Verlander.     Giants getting best of him simple as that.
