While the Fall Classic between the San Francisco Giants and Detroit Tigers pits clubs from two very different cities, the distinctive style and taste of each team's partisans also pours through the beer taps at their ball yards. In a trendy, gourmet food-and-drink obsessed place such as San Francisco, a generic ''cold beer'' at AT&T Park often doesn't cut the mustard as a companion to the stadium's pungent garlic fries or a Caribbean-style concoction called the Cha-Cha Bowl. At Detroit's Comerica Park, where only a couple of locally made beers are on tap, the die-hard Motor City fans are just fine with the unpretentious, established American beer brands. Concessions directors at both stadiums say each facility's beers reflect the fans - eclectic and diverse in San Francisco, and blue collar in Detroit.

Will Lincecum end up in the bullpen?

Verlander's Series struggles return against Giants in Game 1

SAN FRANCISCO -- Seven years later, it was the same result for Justin Verlander.

World Series Game Two: Giants 2, Tigers 0

The San Francisco Giants beat the Detroit Tigers 2-0 in game two of the World Series to take a 2-0 series lead.

Barry Zito …. the pitcher du jour

Barry Zito, the suddenly now relevant lefty, will pitch Game 1 for the San Francisco Giants tomorrow night. Manager Bruce Bochy opted with Zito, who turned that abysmal contract and in turn his career around this year. Alex Rodriguez should take note. Zito’s outing in a 5-0 victory on Friday night in Game 5 of the NL championship series at Busch Stadium was down right stellar...

Panda has memorable night in Game 1

Pablo Sandoval won a World Series ring in 2010, but not the way he wanted to. That was the year his weight ballooned while his playing time shrank. He appeared in only one game of that Fall Classic against the Texas Rangers -- and went 0-for-3. After Tuesday, he's no longer looking for his first World Series hit. An overweight afterthought in 2010, Sandoval needed only one...

Local Detroit Area Business wins DB of the week award

With the Detroit Tigers and Justin Verlander getting most of the Detroit News these days, I thought I would throw in a little fun segmant for you all. If there is one thing that you can count on in life, it’s the complete foolishness and utter stupidity of a “Duechebag“. They are not only foolish, but also predictable. If you need to set you watch just run out and grab your...

Matheny reflects on postseason run

ST. LOUIS Barely two days after being eliminated with a Game 7 loss to the San Francisco Giants, Cardinals manager Mike Matheny couldnt help but turn on the TV Wednesday night to watch Game 1 of the World Series. And when he saw Giants lefty Barry Zito fool the Tigers like he did his powerful offense a few days earlier, he couldnt help but feel a little bit better about what had...

Sandoval's 3 homers carry Giants to Game 1 victory

SAN FRANCISCO -- Babe Ruth, Reggie Jackson, Albert Pujols … and the Kung Fu Panda. Pablo Sandoval hit three home runs, tying a World Series record held by Ruth, Jackson and Pujols to lead the San Francisco Giants to an 8-3 victory over the Detroit Tigers in Game 1 on Wednesday night at AT&T Park.

Obey Our New Panda Overlords

Baseball has apparently been taken over, "conquered" if you will, by a master race of giant space pandas. And I, for one, welcome our new panda overlords. Frankly, I've been asking for it with all the fat jokes/Thai Cashew Chicken Breast references. I don't know what Justin Verlander did though.Pablo Sandoval hit home runs in each of his first three at bats against...

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...
