Yes I thought it was clever that the Giants did not use their #1 pitcher against Verlander, (more or less expecting to lose this one). Then the rest of the series Giants will enjoy favorable pitching matchups.
Robin Ventura ought to play close attention and take notes on the methods SF will be using to destroy Detroit, and use those same tools next year for White Sox victories.
