Giants prove pitching wins championships

Take notes, Brian Cashman. The Giants won the World Series with dominant pitching and a little bit of hitting. Here are the numbers:

Postseason Stats Team ERA Team WHIP Team BA Team OPS
Giants 2.47 1.01 .237 .670
Rangers 3.70 1.17 .255 .738
Yankees 5.01 1.47 .241 .739
The trend isn’t too hard to spot. Between the two World Series teams and the Yankees, the champion had the best pitching and the worst hitting statistics.

I expect the Yankees to make at least one big splash on the free agent market this offseason. I’m hoping Cashman will fish the pitching market, rather than the hitting market.
