Do you think the Detroit Tigers have a shot at coming back against the Giants in

    Do you think the Detroit Tigers have a shot at coming back against the Giants in the World Series?

    The Tigers are sunk. I believe that they had only the sixth best record in the American League this year, so it is not like they were unstoppable to begin with.  During the playoffs they depend on Justin Verlander getting two wins a series, and hope that they can scrape together two more from someone else.
    However, as I'm sure you know, baseball is all about being hot at the right time, so you never know. Just ask the Reds and Cardinals.

    Marco Scutaro is the typical All American underdog hero.  It is his time.  After being kicked around  the dugouts of more than a half dozen teams, he's finally being seen for what he is.  A great team mate and a guy who will not quit.

    When ALL of the other Red Sox went to sleep at the end of the  2011 season, Marco alone hit almost 400 in September and never laid down for one second. 

    Bless you Giants fans for embracing one of the game's best dirt dogs. 

    Go SF. 2012 champs.

      It was fitting  and proper that the hit that  won the World Series for the Giants came from Marco Scutaro.  Dirt Dogs of America unite and celebrate!!!!!!!!

    As a lifelong Tigers fan, I hope they can come back in this series.  An 0-2 hole is a difficult place to be in and the odds do not look good.  Game 3 is huge, if the Tigers are to stay in the series, they will have to win today.  Luckily the series has shifted back to Detroit, now we will have to see what they do with it.

    Prior to the season, the Tigers were expected to be among the elite in the American League, with strong pitching and a potent offense.  They ended up struggling most of the season and barely made the post season. 

    One positive is that the Tigers are one of the top teams in baseball when they are at the top of there game.  They need a great start from Sanchez and they must start producing at the plate if they are going to make this a series.

      Well, the producing at the plate sure didn't happen last night with the 2-0 loss. Cabrera had a chance to do some damage with the bases loaded but didn't come through. It looks rather hopeless for the Tigers.

    I'll let you know after the next 2 games.  It will either be over or even.

      I can answer the question now :-)

    Sure they have a shot, but not a very good one in my opinion. The weather is going to be wet and cold for the next 3 games in Detroit. I think we are going to see some low-scoring close games, probably with a few rain delays. Personally, I'd like to see a 7 game series. Sweeps suck. It's over before you really get into it. So I'm hoping the Tigers win a couple at home.

    The bad news is that they are two games down, and the good news for them is that they will be playing the next 2 to 3 games at home. We will know real soon what their destiny is. Keep on hubbing  smile
