Yes, you are technically correct. I blame it on growing up in a non MLB city. FWIW I supported the Dodgers in the '04 NL DV and would have it they had met in the win and your in game this year.

Looks like Baumgarner is pitching Game 2. Two lefties in a row.

+1 to the excited part. have not been excited for a WS for a while, considering i never have a dog in the fight, but this year i am actually excited.

I really like both of these teams but I'm shading towards the Tigers for league allegiance.

JV will get his first major league hit tonight!

Good news! The StubHub prices for games 3,4,5 have dropped. But not enough for my pocket book.

I'm gonna go to 4 and 5. 5 is a must see with Verlander back on the hill. Maybe it'll be a clinching game. Maybe it won't.

I bet this goes the distance. Giants wouldn't want it any other way

Let's see. For the first two games, which are away, the temperature in Michigan is a balmy, summery 75 degrees. When the games come to Michigan, the high will barely make 50 degrees. Go figure?

Showalter is AL Manager of the Year, Davey Johnson NL.

This cracks me up though:

According to the magazine’s website, Showalter received four first-place votes from a panel of 17 managers, with Oakland’s Bob Melvin getting three first-place votes and finishing second. Chicago White Sox first-year skipper Robin Ventura received one first-place vote and was third.

So let's tally this up. 17 voters. 4 first-place votes for Buck, 3 for Melvin, 1 for Ventura. That's 8 of the 17 voters.

Who the fuck did the other 9 guys vote for? Themselves?

I'm thinking that there are 8 AL managers who vote and 9 NL managers who vote, and they only vote for a manager in their own league. This is the ghetto version of the manager of the year award. The Baseball Writers Association of America is the real one.

Oh. I stand corrected. You're always good for that, Z. Never see you around here, except to shit on my posts. Do you have special powers or something that alert you to my missteps?

Interesting blurb about Zito

His average fastball this year was a career-low 83.7 mph, the second-lowest velocity in the majors behind knuckleballer R.A. Dickey. However, by throwing a cutter more and keeping hitters guessing about which side of the plate he will work, Zito had his most effective season as a Giant. But with his diminished stuff, having a home plate umpire with a liberal interpretation of the strike zone is advantageous -- and maybe even pivotal -- and it just so happens that Gerry Davis is the home plate umpire tonight, with a reputation for having a relatively small strike zone. In games in which Zito has started with Davis behind home plate, the left-hander has issued 25 walks in 35 2/3 innings, with a 5.05 ERA. Not good
