Default World Series

Giants-Tigers. Should be entertaining. Hope San Fran takes it to those douchebags.

Wednesday and Thursday in San Francisco, Saturday-Monday in Detroit, next Wednesday (Halloween) and Thursday back in San Francisco.

Despite the fact that these two are among the "original eight" in each of their leagues, they have never met in the World Series.

Giants in their 19th World Series (most by any NL team), Tigers in their 11th. Giants are 6-12 in their previous 18, Tigers 4-6 in their previous 10.

Remember that the Giants have home field due to the All-Star Game, mostly because Verlander got pounded in the first inning of that game, where a number of Giants had a big hand in that pounding. Usually it ends up that the All-Star Game is won or lost by players that won't even make the playoffs.

I'm just glad to see the Giants put a ****ing stake through the hearts of the St. Louis rally squirrels once and for all.

I won't root for the Tigers in the series, but I won't root against them either. I think Detroit takes it in 5.

Cain and Verlander were the All-Star starters. When was the last time both All-Star starters pitched in the World Series in the same year?

Giants have a lot of magic on their side. Let's hope it continues!

I am pretty damn sick of the Cardinals, so I'm happy the Giants won.
I don't like it, but I think the Tigers are going to win.

No team in the majors hit fewer home runs than the Giants this year, and it really wasn't close.

I don't care about that. The organization pretty much openly welcomed PEDs into their locker room for too long

True. Giants only hit 103 HR's vs. 163 for Detroit. (Yankees led the majors with 245.) Giants, however, did lead the majors in triples (57), while the Tigers were 4th (39).

Giants actually hit better for average over the season than the Tigers (.269 vs. .268) despite playing in the NL. Tigers made up for that with a team ERA of 3.75 vs. 3.68 for the Giants, despite playing in the AL.

Giants seem to be better at stringing hits together to produce runs, and while their starters aren't quite as strong as the Tigers, they make up for it with a much better bullpen. The longer the series goes, the more I believe it favors the Giants.

I can't believe that. If they want to, the Tigers can have Verlander go games 1, 4 and 7.
