Rested Tigers in 5 Peter Schmuck Baltimore Sun The Giants certainly have shown tremendous resilience, fending off a Cardinals team that seemed born to be the wild-card world champion, but that seven-game NLCS is going to cost them in the World Series. The Tigers are well-rested and have their starting rotation lined up just right to get the jump on the Giants, even though the Fall Classic will begin in San Francisco. The home-field disadvantage probably is not going to bother Justin Verlander, who should be very fresh pitching on more than a week's rest.

After spending the weekend together in a meaningless series, the Minnesota Twins and Toronto Blue Jays today begin play with an American League pennant on the line.Who's going to win the series?Will it be the AL East winners from Toronto, who beat Minnesota 8-4 in their 12-game series during the regular season?Or will it be the AL West representatives from Minnesota, who sewed up their own worst-to-first legacy long before the tomahawks started chopping their way through the Atlanta air?To register your opinion, call SUNDIAL at 783-1800 (or 268-7736 in Anne Arundel County)

NEW YORK -- How good are the Yankees? Good enough to shatter the Orioles, that's for sure.Also good enough to win the AL East in a walk and draw comparisons to the century's greatest teams.But good enough to win the World Series?"That's the question that'll matter in the end," the Orioles' Joe Carter said last night at Yankee Stadium.It might seem like a given now, with the Yankees having won 59 of 79 games, including last night's 3-2 win over the Orioles, and three of four last month against their No. 1 challenger, the Braves.

ATLANTA -- It was going to be a perfect ending.After winning the first two games of the World Series at Yankee Stadium, the Braves came home with plans to finish off the Yankees and win the Series in their last game at Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium.What a way to close out their history at a stadium where they had played for three decades.Then the Yankees won Game 3 and came back from six runs down to win Game 4.So much for the perfect ending.As the Braves and Yankees began the fifth game of the Series and the last game at the old stadium last night, the Braves just wanted the Series lead back before returning to Yankee Stadium.

CLEVELAND -- The Cleveland Indians awoke to uneasy circumstances yesterday for the first time in 1995.Having won their division by 30 games and having swept the Red Sox in their divisional series, they had reached the American League Championship Series without experiencing so much as a single tense moment.The only pressure in Cleveland this year was the pressure of trying to win 100 games.Or seeing whether Albert Belle could hit 50 homers to match his 50 doubles.Tough life."When was your last must-win game?"

TORONTO -- As they say in baseball these days, there goes that $5 million down the drain. . .OK, OK, that's going too far. The Blue Jays gave Jack Morris $5 million this year for one reason only -- to win the World Series -- and they wouldn't be this close had he not won those 21 regular-season games.But there he was last night on the mound for Game 5 of the Series, with his shimmering postseason record, a reputation as the game's top pressure pitcher and a chance to do just what the Jays had asked him to do: wrap up a Series title.

TORONTO -- Not to poop the hellzapoppin' party that erupted here when the Blue Jays finally chugged their way to the American League pennant the other day, but does anyone really think it means their big-game jinx is forever behind them?Better think again.Sure, the Jays have finally delivered a no-choke season in outlasting the Brewers and Orioles, then beating the A's. They were baseball's best in September and all backbone in crunching the A's with comebacks.But you can file this one under "Life: Unfair": Until they win a World Series, the Jays will continue to be lumped with the other teams suffering from a pressure pox. Yes, even after such a season.

Wade, Heat will prevail Steve Svekis Sun Sentinel It's a best-of-three series now, and the Heat own home-court advantage. With that being the case, Dwyane Wade will take home his second championship and Finals MVP trophies. Despite LeBron James' putrid offensive production down the stretch during this series (2.3 points per fourth quarter), the Heat still have been in position to win each game. If James remains in hibernation, there is a chance the Heat could drop another game at home, and Dirk Nowitzki could get revenge for his 2006 failings against the Heat.

To paraphrase Joe Torre, minus the expletive, from one of the New York Yankees manager's more embarrassing on-air moments, "The worm has turned."The Orioles took care of some old business against an old adversary last night at Camden Yards, paying back last year's nemesis for a season of blown leads, demoralizing losses and a home-field disadvantage. Rafael Palmeiro's two-run, 10th-inning home run did more than give the Orioles a 7-5 win. It confirmed last week's suspicion that a different season carries a different .. message.

The managers of the Atlanta Braves and Philadelphia Phillies canceled workouts yesterday, the day before the sixth game of the National League Championship Series.That's probably a good thing, for there have been enough surprises in the series to tax the minds and bodies of even the most supremely conditioned athletes, not to mention guys such as John Kruk.For instance, who would have figured that the Phillies, after giving up 23 runs in games 2 and 3, would win two of three at Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium to take a 3-2 lead in the best-of-seven series?
