"I think it's gonna go seven (games), and I don't think (the San Francisco Giants) can beat (Tigers ace Justin) Verlander two out of three times," the Detroit rocker told classic rock station WCSX-FM on Wednesday morning, October 24.
Seger added that "I really hope they do it this time. It'll be great...I hope they're on their game. We, of course, everyone in Michigan, we're just gaga over them, and I wish them all the best." Seger said he's particularly rooting for Tigers manager Jim Leyland, since the two are the same age (67).
Seger said he planned to attend some of the games but noted that he's "taking one for the team" for NOT offering to perform a national anthem or anything else during the World Series home games at Comerica Park. "I told my manager...I said, 'Make sure they know I'm NOT doing any anthems, 'cause in 2006 I did done and we lost," Seger said with a laugh. "I'm gonna do my part for the Tigers, and I promise them I will do no anthems."
Seger also provided an update on his next album, saying he has six songs ready to go -- including one called "Hannah" that features Kid Rock and Sheryl Crow -- and may dip into the vaults for some leftover tracks from 2006's "Face The Promise" to complete the set. No release date has yet been determined for the album
