SAN FRANCISCO (CBS Sports) — Belying their name, the San Francisco Giants are the little team in this World Series. Nationally, they’re viewed as the World Series participant with fewer big players, and less talent.
The Detroit Tigers swept the big, bad New York Yankees to get here. They have their great pitching, and what’s more, it’s all lined up how they want it. So what’s not to like?
The scouts are the same way. They see the Tigers’ talent and love it. But they appreciate the Giants, too. “They are a nice club,” one NL scout said when asked about their chances. “They’ve got a good baseball team. I wouldn’t put it past ‘em.”
That’s about the best you’re going to get. But that isn’t nothing. It means plenty. Don’t put it past ‘em.
