2012 World Series Preview: Detroit Tigers vs. San Francisco Giants
Both teams have recently won the World Series so we've got 2 veteran teams competing for the 2012 MLB World Champions title. The American League Champion Detroit Tigers are well rested after sweeping the New York Yankees in 4 straight games, while the Giants worked hard to make it to the World Series. The San Francisco Giants fought back from a 2-0 deficit to defeat the Cincinnati Reds, and then came back from a 3-1 deficit to defeat the defending champion St. Louis Cardinals 4 games to 3 in the National League Championship Series.
On paper, this World Series looks like a even matchup. The Tigers are led by likely AL MVP winner Miguel Cabrera, and ace pitcher Justin Verlander who starts game 1 and could pitch 3 times if needed. The Giants however have the momentum of the comeback wins, as well as home field advantage as the National League won the All Star Game.
