Fielder, a career National Leaguer until this year, needs to do his damage against right-handed pitching early in games. He’s certain to see a steady diet of left-handers in the late innings, considering the Giants carried three southpaw relievers on their NLCS roster: Jeremy Affeldt, Javier Lopez and Jose Mijares. Madison Bumgarner looms as another possibility if he doesn't start. Fielder has a .558 OPS in this postseason, so perhaps he’s bound to break out anyway. - Jon Paul Morosi
