Possibly random theory about this terrible series.

It's pretty well-documented that there is such a phenomenon as home field advantage. In addition to the fan support, I think much of the assistance comes from the fact that players are playing in a familiar setting, a comfortable place. The flipside to that is that away games provide unfamiliarity and uncomfortable situations.

For the Giants, the home setting provides, in addition to the awesome crowd, some nice home field advantages such as how to play RF and Triples Alley, how to successfully warm-up in the bullpen while so close to the field of play, and how to

In this series, three things compounded the home field advantage.

  1. The heat on Lincecum's start (and it's Timmy)
  2. The incredibly early start on the 4th (add to that the fact that it was east coast time...)
  3. Throwback jerseys that made the Giants resemble the Yankees (who some consider to be evil)

Add to that the lame enormous scoreboard/HDTV, and...

... Let's just say that it'll be interesting to see how things play out in August when the Nationals come to town and a seagull poops on them.
