Tim Kurkjian on Series Pitching

"With all of the information we have today, everything favors the pitching. ... I think this is going to be a low-scoring Series, because the pitching in the big leagues today is like no other time that I've seen it."


Series may lack big offense

Don't expect the World Series to be full of high-scoring games. The Giants and Royals were middle-of-the-road offensively this season. The Giants finished 12th in the MLB in runs scored, the Royals 14th. The Giants were 17th in HRs, the Royals 30th.


This World Series will feature all sorts of entertaining contrasts. It matches the Giants, the biannual Series crashers, versus the Royals, who show up for the postseason once every three decades. Most improbable of World Series matchups

Giants own experience edge

San Francisco has 13 players who were a part of a World Series. The Royals, on the other hand, have only two -- Omar Infante and James Shields.

Based on active postseason win streaks for the Royals and Giants, this World Series Game 1 is a meeting of an immovable force and an unstoppable object.

Giants or Royals? Royals or Giants? Who ya got? Truth is no one really knows, but our experts take a stab at it. Predictions sure to go wrong
