The World Series

The San Francisco Giants did to the St. Louis Cardinals what the Cardinals had been doing to everyone else, coming back from near certain elimination to advance to the World Series.  They are playing the Detroit Tigers, a team that has the thanks and admiration of most of the baseball world for humiliating the New York Yankees by sweeping them in four games.

So, fellow baseball fans, who do you like in the World Series that began last night with an 8-3 Giants win?  That is to say, who do you think will win AND whom would you like to win?

I think I will pull for the Tigers.  Detroit is a beaten down city that could use the boost.

    Looks to me like Pablo Sandoval and eight ballerinas could tame the Tigers. I imagine he’ll be walking to first base for the rest of the series.

    Tigers. They can do it, although the Giants did rather embarrass Verlander last night.

    I’m really an A’s fan, but since the local boys from San Fran are in it I have to root for them. I’ll guess Giants in 7…the advertisers need all 7 games to market to us.

    This will probably be one of the lowest rated World Series in history.

    As a Michigan man, I wouldn’t mind seeing the Tigers pull it off, but to be honest my attention is diverted to football now. Baseball is about a month too long.

    The best thing to give Detroit (the city and it’s people) a boost, would be to dump all of the liberal mayors and union puppets and Democratic ideas and get a solid conservative to run the place.

    I know there’s about as much chance of that happening as there is for the Cubs to win the Series.
