Live discussion: World Series preview

October 23, 2012|By Houston Mitchell

The San Francisco Giants will take on the Detroit Tigers in the World Series this year, and Times baseball columnist Bill Shaikin, Dodgers writer Dylan Hernandez and Angels writer Mike DiGiovanna will discuss the upcoming Fall Classic today at 11:30 in a Google+ Hangout.

As Shaikin wrote on the heels of the Giants winning Game 7 of the NLCS against the St. Louis Cardinals on Monday:

"You say the San Francisco Giants might have to be pretty crazy lucky to beat Justin Verlander. You might be right, but you haven't seen pretty crazy lucky until you see the ball Hunter Pence hit on Monday.

The Giants can't win the World Series? Miguel Cabrera and Prince Fielder can launch home runs into the stratosphere, but neither one can hit the carom shot that knocked the life out of the St. Louis Cardinals.

For the second time in three years, the Giants are headed to the World Series. They took all the suspense out of Game 7 of the National League Championship Series in a hurry, scoring seven runs in the first three innings of a 9-0 victory and sending the Cardinals home to contemplate a miserable finish to a nice season."

So, who will win the World Series? Join our three experts at 11:30 to find out their thoughts. If you have a question for Shaikin, DiGioVanna or Hernandez, email your question to and we will try to answer it during the show.
