Should be interesting, but I'll be pulling for San Fran (and I actually think I like them in this series).
I will say this: The existence of just two power bats and an ace doesn't make a champion. The Giants play like a team and don't swing for the fences. They'll surely put pressure on the Tigers defense. The Tigers WILL need pitching and defense (in addition to their 'big 3') to win this.
And this is interesting...
- The White Sox were #3 in MLB in HRs (748 Rs), they couldn't do it.
- The Athletics were #7 in MLB in HRs (804 Rs), they couldn't do it.
- The Yankees were #1 in MLB in HRs (713 Rs), they couldn't do it.
- The Giants were DEAD LAST in MLB in HRs (718 Rs)... let's see if they can do it.
