Stick a fork in ‘em — the Detroit Tigers are done. That’s what ESPN.com analyst Jim Caple is saying after the San Francisco Giants jumped out to a two-game lead in the World Series.
The teams have today off to travel to Detroit, where the next three games are scheduled to be played — if three games are even needed. If the Giants win two out of those three games, the best-of-seven World Series will be over and the Giants will be coming home champions. If the Tigers can somehow change their luck and win a couple of games in Detroit, the series will return to AT&T Park, where the Giants will have the opportunity to clinch at home.
Caple predicts that isn’t going to happen.
“I love this city, I love this ballpark, I would love to have the series return here, but I think it’s over with,” Caple says, standing on the field at AT&T Park in this video blog. Caple prognosticates that the Giants are on their way to their second World Series championship in three years. Let’s hope he’s right.
