Game One of the NLCS featuring the San Francisco Giants and Philadelphia Phillies is set to begin in less than an hour. Tim Lincecum will lead the Giants against Roy Halladay and the Phillies in one of the most anticipated games in recent Playoff memory.

The Phillies enter the series as the prohibited favorite, but anyone underestimating the Giants and their pitching staff is making a mistake. Even with Halladay throwing only the second no-hitter in postseason history in the NLDS, the Giants starting staff was every bit as dominant as the Phillies' staff.
