SAN FRANCISCO -- Media Day has just concluded at AT&T Park (we're on Pacific time, remember) and I got some tight print deadlines but I can give you the key nugget that developed with the pitching rotations:
Game One: Justin Verlander vs. Barry Zito
Game Two: Doug Fister vs. Madison Baumgarner
Game Three: Anibel Sanchez vs. Ryan Vogelsong
Game Four: Max Scherzer vs. Matt Cain
Giants manager Bruce Bochy said Tim Lincecum would pitch out of the bullpen in this series. Meanwhile, Tigers manager Jim Leyland said Verlander would not start three times but would start Games One and Five. That, of course, would leave him available in relief for a Game Seven appearance (think Randy Johnson, 2001).
