Found October 24, 2012 on Lady Loves Pinstripes:
My predication is that the 2012 MLB World Series Champion will be the New York Yankees. Oh wait the Yankees lost, my bad. If you could please excuse me as I am trying to purposely forget the ALCS pummeling I had to witness last week vs. the Detroit Tigers, which anyone with a half-a-brain should understand why. But this is not about the Yankees, and admittedly that fact is still tough for me to swallow. Ok enough Yankee banter, as it is time to make my 2012 World Series pick. This WS is between two teams, who took two totally different paths to get to the same place. The last time these two-faced each other was July of 2011. Now the big question is who win it all between the Detroit Tigers or the San Francisco Giants? Will the Tigers bring Detroit its first World Series Championship since 1986? Or will the city of San Francisco be throwing a second ticker tape parade for their Giants in three years? Right off the bat my gut said Tigers would win in five games, and it was Detroit’s s...

Prince Fielder hangs out with Eminem (Video)

2012 World Series: Did Prince Fielder’s Large Rump Cost Detroit Tigers Game 2 Win?

The Detroit Tigers know how important it was to take at least one of the first two road games against the San Francisco Giants in the 2012 World Series. Going home with a 2-0 series deficit was going to be awfully difficult to overcome against a team with stellar pitching such as the Giants. Unfortunately, it could have been Prince Fielder’s large rump that cost the Tigers a Game...

One Down, Three to Go

Yesterday’s game was all sorts of crazy, and I think that’s best illustrated by the fact that the following sentence is a perfectly valid, accurate arrangement of words: Barry Zito singled off Justin Verlander in the fourth inning to give the Giants a 1-0 lead in Game One of the World Series. Let’s see here… Barry Zito started Game One of the World Series for the Giants...

Quick n’ Dirty World Series Predictions

Here we are, down to the final series. The Detroit Tigers. The San Francisco Giants. Who’s going to win? George Bowles: First off, I feel I need to say I don’t know what the hell happened to the Cardinals but the wheels fell off really quickly as they couldn’t win one of three games vs a team that was not real good. I wouldn’t go so far to say that they “choked”, but...

The World Series Pick: The Detroit Verlanders

Look Into The Face Of Giant Fear We're going to make this quick and dirty, because baseball stopped being very interesting to me weeks ago, and even a historic comeback by the Giants has not re-stoked my fire. Also, I'm just seeing this on really, really simplistic levels. Here's what I wrote about why the Tigers were going to beat the A's in five, which was exactly...

Giants' pitching is again dominant

At the outset of the San Francisco Giants' postseason, their starting pitchers were no better than mediocre. In fact, they were somewhat bad. A far cry from the 2010 postseason in which the rotation carried the team to the championship. But, suddenly, the rotation has fixed itself. As October rolled along, starters began finding their groove. The Giants carry a five-game...
