Of the two, I'd say the Giants are the lesser of the two evils though.

So you claim that the Yankees should be in the World Series, and then claim that sweeping them is a walk in the park.

You bring up the Tigers record to show that they were lucky to make the playoffs, yet they had as many wins as the Cardinals who you use to show how great the Giants are.

I think the Giants beat Verlander tonight and pave the way for victory in 5 games. That is based off nothing except my jealousy of the Tigers

I could never root for the Giants...plus I feel Verlander is due his ring. Valverde, along with their defense, could be Detroit's Achilles' Heel, so nothing is written in stone yet.
