I can't root for Detroit either. Melky who? Giants really playing great baseball and hopefully they win in five.

Melky is a big reason why this game is in San Francisco.

Melky did score the first run (and eventual game winner) in the ASG (off of Braun's double), but it was Sandoval's 3-run triple that really busted the game open for the NL.

And the Almighty Zito gets the win and an RBI. This is just a ****ty match-up for the Tigers.

I wouldn't be devastated if the Tigers win (I've had a great time in Detroit) but prefer the Giants (been to SF many times and love the city).

How are the 2005 Sox not an exception as well? They won ALCS on Sunday, had five full days off until WS Game 1 on Saturday?

I must be missing something...

I've been to about 20 different cities for Sox games and Detroit has by far the rudest fans. Even the Tiger mascot threw a box of popcorn at me.

oh and in response to another post in this thread, I've been sick of Joe Buck since the 2005 post-season. Go the **** away already, loser!

The Giants are really solid all around. This first game looked exactly like '10, where they blew out the seemingly invincible Cliff Lee and coasted to the title.
Verlander was only lit up by Sandoval, but nonetheless. An impressive win in the first game.

I would also say that Detroit fans of any sports visiting in Chicago are often ruder than the average visiting fan. Evidenced by many, many, many Sox/Tigers and Hawks/Wings games I've been to and finally my first Bears/Lions game on Monday.

Sadly, that new deal MLB just signed with Fox will keep him around for awhile.
