It’s a miracle that the Giants are in the World Series, but now that they made it to the dance, this is going to be a very pitcher-dominant matchup. I think the Tigers are going to win, but it’s going to take at least six or seven games to do it. I can’t wait for the series to begin and I’ve already set a reminder for Wednesday’s matchup through my Hopper’s GameFinder app. A coworker at DISH told me about this feature and I’ve been able to keep up with when playoff games are on TV. I wouldn’t be surprised if Verlander tried to pitch in three games, if necessary. The Tigers’ pitching staff is as formidable as the Giants roster.

Sorry to see that the Detroit Tigers have lost two games to the Giants. Why couldn't MLB schedule a DAY game here in Detroit? Weather wise and for the younger kids, this would have been a great idea! Oh wait, it's the money made from the ads. Sorry little kids, you're out of luck.
