2010 World Series Schedule - Cliff Lee and Tim Lincecum

This year’s World Series was initially hyped up to be a rematch of the Yankees-Phillies championship series from last year, but the Rangers and the Giants had different ideas. Texas and San Francisco start the battle this Wednesday. Here’s a look at the complete 2010 World Series schedule:

  • Game 1 TEX @ SF Wed, Oct. 27 at 7:30 PM
  • Game 2 TEX @ SF Thu, Oct. 28 at 7:30 PM
  • Game 3 SF @ TEX Sat, Oct. 30 at 6:30 PM
  • Game 4 SF @ TEX Sun, Oct. 31 at 8:00 PM
  • Game 5 SF @ TEX Mon, Nov. 1 at 7:30 PM
  • Game 6 TEX @ SF Wed, Nov. 3 at 7:30 PM
  • Game 7 TEX @ SF Thu, Nov. 4 at 7:30 PM

Cliff Lee and Tim Lincecum are scheduled to duel it out in Game 1. Lee has been lights out lately, and he’s never lost a game in the postseason. In eight career playoff starts, Lee’s gone 7-0 with a 1.26 ERA.  Lincecum has never pitched against the Rangers. He finished 16-10 with a 3.43 ERA this season. Lincecum struggled big time in August (0-5 with an ERA of 7.82), but the long-haired righty finished the season strong in September and October (5-1 with a 1.94 ERA). Should be a good battle.

Fox and TBS both reported ratings increases for the League Championship Series this year. Those year-over-year TV ratings bumps should take a hit once the series gets underway.

The scheduling for Game 4 will be interesting. The World Series will be up against a Sunday night football game that features the Pittsburgh Steelers traveling to New Orleans to take on the defending Super Bowl champs. I’m no psychic, but no matter how the 2010 World Series schedule shakes out, more people will tune-in to see a quality NFL matchup over a pivotal postseason baseball game, that’s for damn sure.
