Well, there are two not household names in the World Series. But they certainly deserve to be there...
The Detroit Tigers of the American League and the San Francisco Giants. They played well this season. They don't have the bajillionty dollar payrolls of the say the Evil Empire or even the Red Sox. I dunno much about the payroll of the National League, but it's been the Phillies, the Braves and the Mets for a while.
I'm a Red Sox girl all the way, but I was quite happy that the Tigers kicked the Yankees to the kerb. It was gratifying actually.
The Cardinals went to the big dance last year, so it was sorta time for someone new.
Zito is pitching as is Verlander...it seems like Verlander has stayed in his pod or somesuch...because he's not doing so well tonight...I am rather disappointed.
But it's a long series, so you never know...
AND it's the same matchup in Game 5...so maybe it'll be different.
