Thoughts after 3 innings, Tigers, Giants, Game 3, World Series

- There were a lot of things the Tigers wanted to see from Quintin Berry in that situation. Swinging at the first pitch wasn't one of them.
- Anibal Sanchez's lack of command tonight is alarming and surprising. The Giants seem to be recognizing his pitches well. They are getting good swings off him. The Tigers bullpen better get ready. It looks like they will be getting plenty of work tonight. Even in the 1-2-3 third inning, Sanchez had to throw a lot of pitches. 62 pitches after three innings is just too many.
- Honestly, I have never thought much about Giants left fielder Gregor Blanco before this postseason. He was the very definition of just another player. His career OPS is well below .700 and he's bounced around a lot in his career. Given his play both offensively and defensively in the series, he has all the makings of  a classic World Series hero, who has essentially come out of nowhere.
