World Series thoughts?
So, the Giants are en route to a pretty impressive comeback (only the 3rd or 4th team to come back from a 3-1 deficit in the NLCS). Giants are as hot as can be right now. How do you guys think they'll stack up against the Tigers? Despite having a few star players (Verlander, Prince, and Cabrera) I don't get the sense that the Tigers are very well liked by the casual baseball fan. From that perspective, I see more people rooting for the Giants. Am I off-base here?

In my opinion, despite the Giants hot streak, the Tigers will be a tough team to beat. They seem to have a clear edge in starting pitching and hitting. The Giants have better defense, relief, and speed. With that said, it's late-October baseball and it's hard to predict the Tigers performance. They've been a frustratingly streaky team all season. The bullpen is a major wild card with Valverde's status somewhat up in the air and the rest of the case performing above expectations so far (aside from Benoit).

Win or lose, the World Series is my favorite time of year.

When all is said and done, I'm picking the Tigers in 5. (might be optimistic, but what the heck). At the same time, it wouldn't shock me to see the Giants run away with it. You just never know. I'm concerned that the Tigers weren't tested against the Yankees and might be rusty after the nearly week long layoff.

Always looking for Verlander, Cabrera, Maybin, Mike Stanton (marlins), and Avisail Garcia.
