Talking Chop has a word with Giants blog McCovey Chronicles:
Q: Are you excited or afraid to be facing the Braves as opposed to the Reds, Phillies, or Padres?
A: I've always thought that kind of thing was nonsense. If a team wants to win the World Series, they have to beat three good teams. People need to quit worrying about which team was the juggernaut and which team limped in. In a short series, the Nationals are dangerous.
The Braves are a good team. I'm not excited to face them. I'm terrified, just as I would be with the Reds, Phillies, Rangers, Rays, Yankees, orTwins. It's not like the Giants are going to advance to the playoffs, look up, and see the Mariners roll into town.
Q: Make three predictions about this upcoming series?
A: 1. Loss of bladder control
2. Inappropriate words muttered in the general direction of Jose Guillen
3. Buster Posey and Jason Heyward will tie their wrists together and get into a knife fight, like those two guys in the "Beat It" video.
