World Series Game 2 Preview: “What? No of course I know more Giants players than Peter Sandoval!”

Last night baseball fans across America (and Canada I guess) learned the value of closing your eyes and swinging. Today, aspiring ball players threw “stats” and “plate discipline” out the window and just started hacking at every goddamn thing that crossed their line of sight in hopes of hitting massive dingers off of talented pitchers. Tonight the Giants send Madison Bumgarner to the mound as they seek a two-game lead in this series. Opposing him will be Doug Fister, one more member Detroit’s powerful playoff rotation. Bumgarner has had a rough postseason so far, losing two games and never finishing the 5th inning. This is the playoffs though, and sample size should always be considered. Neither manager has juggled their lineup in any significant way, except that Gerald Laird has been added to the Tiger lineup for some reason.

Tune in at 8 Eastern tonight! Tune in at 7:30 if you want to hear Tim McCarver, but all of us here feel that suicide is quicker and less painful.
