Random thoughts heading into Game 4

By David Schoenfield

At this point, there isn't a whole lot to say. The San Francisco Giants' pitching has been spectacular, their defense has been terrific and the Detroit Tigers' bats are as cold as the Michigan weather. But the series isn't over, not with Max Scherzer certainly capable of outpitching Matt Cain in Game 4 and Justin Verlander ready for Game 5. This series hasn't been about one team being better in the clutch than the other -- it has been about one team playing better at just the right time.

A few thoughts before Sunday's game.
