Barry Zito vs. Justin Verlander

Zito was left off the Giants’ postseason roster when they won it all in 2010. Now he should be their Game 1 starter — against the Best Pitcher on the Planet. Zito earned the assignment with a strong run to end the regular season (7-0 with a 3.92 ERA in 11 starts) and stirring Game 5 in St. Louis to avoid elimination. The good news for Zito: Detroit went only 26-25 against left-handed starters during the regular season. The bad news: Verlander is pitching for the other guys. - Jon Paul Morosi (AP Photo/Al Behrman/Marcio Jose Sanchez)
