I am just giddy to see the Tigers in the World Series.

No predictions here.

haha, didn't say I wouldn't watch. Just saying it's going to be really boring and not so great of a series. I am predicting Tigers will win it though.

I agree totally. I predict the Tigs blow them out early and often. We should hit plenty of HR's in the smaller ATT park.

I know the dimensions and it's smaller than Comerica chief. I also know that even in that smaller park the Giants can't hit dingers for squat.

The guy knows nothing in general. Being opinionated and ignorant is a bad combination.

All silliness aside, I love the Giants and hope they play a good series. Very happy they beat out the Cards.

big bad bruising team like Detroit??? Detroit was 24th in the league in homeruns on the year with 71. Carera and Fielder have some amazing pop but after that it's an average powered lineup. The Giants pitching staff gave up 53 homeruns at home which is the least amount by any team in the majors.


The dimensions are only part of the reason, as well as the strong pitching staff but also the weather elements that blow the balls inward and turn a no doubter homerun into a warning track flyball. Also the dimension do not take into consideration the 20+ foot wall that is in right center
