DETROIT -- The numbers are astonishing. We've played only three games of the World Series but this baby is toast.
The Giants lead, three games to none, and the last eight teams to go down, 3-0, have all been swept! No one has won Game Four since the 1970 Reds and no one has EVER won Games Four and Five. Pity the Tigers.
I recorded some thoughts on Game Three below. Hard to process this series so far. Plenty of teams have good pitching at this point. But what the Giants are doing is just about unheard of on the mound, especially from their starters.
Starting with the comeback from 0-2 in the NLDS in Cincinnati, we're in the midst of one of the greatest miracle runs in postseason history. If this was the Yankees or Red Sox, people would be writing books about it. Oh yeah, that did happen in 2004. Never mind.
