It is the sound of the chainsaw firing up in the bloodiest horror flick you've ever seen. It is the sound of a hitter's guts gurgling and bubbling to the point of illness.

Scott Miller's Starting 9 (+7): Who Has Edge in Giants-Royals World Series? — KANSAS CITY - Matching 'em up, from top to bottom, left to right, north to south and right-side-up to upside-down: The teams, the cities, the drama.

Scott Miller's Starting 9 (+3): Storylines, Predictions for 2014 ALCS and NLCS — Boog's Barbecue vs. Arthur Bryant's? This might be the most delicious ALCS matchup since Bert Campaneris vs. Lerrin LaGrow. I'm salivating already. Hard to predict who will emerge, Baltimore's Bangers or Kansas City's Track Team? But I do know that so far, all who have underestimated the Orioles this season are buried somewhere under a large stack of crab cakes.
