But the White Sox have been a low scoring and somewhat successful ball club all summer. 1-0, 2-0 games are familiar territory and even late inning comebacks. The world series milieu would be just like playing KC for our team, no big deal. I sure hope Robin is paying attention to how to beat Detroit as we will be facing them several times in 2013. Maybe he can have a beer with Bochy during spring training and pick his brain.
The White Sox aren't good enough right now. Maybe when they jump out of the dugout in '13, they'll have some better hitters and pitchers.

Default 2012 World Series

The Tigers were horrible in the 2006 World Series. I didn't think they would tank again. I was wrong, this 2012 World Series has been a bust for the Tigers again. I realize it's not over yet, but being down 3 games to none it sure doesn't look good for the Tigers. Watching the Tigers these last 3 games has been about as exciting as watching paint dry.

I don't know that that's true. If the White Sox had held on to a 6-0 lead at home to the Tigers in May and closed out a lead in the ninth in Detroit, they would have finished with more wins than the Tigers, even with Cabrera having a career year. The trick would have been getting past the A's. The Yankees were done by the time they faced the Tigers.

The Sox, with John Danks out for most of the season, with Floyd out for a good part of the season, pushing young starters deeper with more work into a baseball season than they've ever gone before, relying heavily on rookies with great arms to carry the bullpen deep into the season, came close to winning the division. And even then, had Peavy been the money pitcher he was supposed to be, the Sox may have outlasted Detroit.

I don't think they would be leading the Giants in the World Series right now, though. I think the Giants field a better team -- better pitching, very strong defense and an offense that puts the ball in play to push across runs -- the fewest home runs in baseball and three strikeouts away from striking out the fewest number of times.

The Sox will need to improve next season, but there is ample room, even need for improvement among the top teams in the American League. The tightness of the races and the wild card in the American League this year I think were due to the league being much closer from top to bottom than the National League.

Dominant pitching will do that to any team.

Neither Zito,Bumgarner or Vogelsong have allowed an earned run.

The Giants' 'pen' allowed 3 runs in the 9th inning of game 1,when the Giants were ahead 8-0.

The Giants have outscored the Tigers 12-3 in 27 innings of baseball.

The Tigers haven't given up that many runs,but they can't cash in when the situation presents itself.

That's easily a candidate for worst public rendition of all-time.

They were all singing harmony. Someone forgot the melody.

Yep. Someone tell me their lead was absent.

What a job by Affeldt. Striking out the heart of the order after giving up the DLW. An inning El Duque would be proud of.

Did not look good with Infante. We're going to extras.

Scutaro drives in Theriot. Sounds about right for this team.

Will a Romo lead a Giants to victory twice in one day?
