    The Tigers are looking very similar to a certain team last round that couldn't hit.

    The Tigers were in the right place at the right time. Yanks were lazy, and the Giants proved that they could make Miggy and Fielder look very mediocre.

    Despite getting swept, they still were hitting a lot better in the WS than the Yankees were hitting in the ALCS.

    No, they weren't. The stats are nearly identical. But either way it is still a very small sample of 4 games each.

    The Yankees got very cold in the ALCS at the wrong time. The Tigers got very cold at the wrong time in the WS.

    But congrats to the Giants they pitched very well when they needed to and got just enough offense to win. I mean other than G1, the Giants didn't really do much on offense.

    When your pitching gives you a pair of shutouts in the middle games, since the rotation + pen is lights out, you really don't need much offense.

    Good pitching (in this case great pitching) beats good hitting. The better team won.

    After both of them and Young went 1-2-3 in the 7th or 8th inning, he may as well have. Cabrera hit around .270, but Sandoval went 1-for-5 to LOWER his AVG to .500 (8-for-16). Unreal.

    I still say that if Cabrera could trade his Triple Crown + likely MVP for a HR last night, he'd be crazy not to.

    I call it dumb luck. The 3 runs last night would've won 3-2 vs SFG in Game 3, but Motown got shutout in that game.

    Whether slugging in Game 1 or pitching duels in Games 2-3, San Fran managed to stay 1/2 a step ahead of the competition. The last 3 games were save situations, only 1- or 2-run games, I think.

    Was I watching a different game than you?

    I'm sure he'd like that last pitch back but pretty sure his HR gave the Tigers their only short lived lead in the series.

    I was referring to the pitch that sailed past him in the 9th for strike 3 to end the game. If he could trade that Triple Crown for a HR in THAT AB, he surely would've.

    For all the flack Brian Sabean had as SF Giants GM between 2004-2008, you have to give credit where credit is due. He's now a two-time World Champion as GM since his appointment in 1997.

    Last night's game was good. Detroit played poorly overall, and didn't deserve to win. One good thing, the Yankees' f.o. won't be pursuing Prince Fielder.

    Who would have ever thought that the Giants would win 2 rings during the Zito contract? The entire baseball world had the contract pegged as a dud from the moment it was signed and it shockingly didn't cripple the franchise.

    Gives me some hope for a few years from now when Tex and ARod become absolute non-factors like Zito is
