Giants have always been my favorite NL team so this call is easy for me....Go Giants!

I saw a stat that since they have gone to this format there are 6 teams that went into the World Series with 5 or more days off....5 of them lost.

Tigers were one of them in 2006...and they were swept by the Cards.

On paper, the Tigers have everything but home field going for them...4 rested starters who are on fire with ERA's under 1.0 in the playoffs...kind of like the Sox in 2005.

Verlander will only pitch twice unless Leyland changes his plan.
The Giants have to jump on them and get the Series back to SF, minimum.. they can win the last two in SF if they are trailing.
