Cain to start Game 2

Posted on: October 25, 2010 8:20 pm
Matt Cain Reporters have met with Bruce Bochy in San Francisco and the Giants manager says he'll once again switch up his Game 2 and 3 starters.

Matt Cain (pictured) will start Game 2, followed by Jonathan Sanchez -- the opposite of their starts in the NLCS. Madison Bumgarner will pitch Game 4, he said.

So, the rotation will be Tim Lincecum, Cain, Sanchez and Bumgarner.

"Matt hasn't thrown in a while," Bochy said (via the San Jose Mercury News ' Andrew Baggarly on Twitter ). "He's ready and Johnny just threw. We're excited wherever we put these guys."

Also, Baggerly reports center fielder Andres Torres was planning on doing some light running to test his hip flexor.

"I think it's going to be all right," Torres said.

Cain to start Game 2

Other than Cain having not pitched in a while, why is this news? He is the team's obvious #2 starter anyway. Its very obviously a slow day for "breaking" baseball news. I only hope that the ratings for this World Series are solid. It would be a shame with two great teams that don't see championship action to be viewed almost exclusively by West Coast fans. Good luck to both the Rangers and Giants. My money is on the Giants, but I honestly wouldn't be bothered by either team winning this one.
