Our PS3 Likes the Giants in the World Series

We know, it's sad not having the Yankees in the World Series, and we're just going to have to make our peace with it. (Look, it's a lovely day outside! For example.) The World Series is still happening, even without the Yankees, which means we had to fire up ye olde PlayStation 3 and MLB 10: The Show and simulate the thing, like we have every other series. Put your money on the Giants, our PS3 says. In a wild series that featured six Josh Hamilton homers, the Giants ended up winning Game 7 with a final score of 6-1, thanks to seven shutout innings by Tim Lincecum and a six-run third inning off Colby Lewis, culminating in a three-run homer by Edgar Renteria, a World Series hero again. Congrats to the Giants, who now obviously have nothing to worry about. Our PS3 will now go into storage until the NFL playoffs.
