As with all things, there are definite winners and losers to consider after the San Francisco Giants swept the Detroit Tigers to win the 2012 World Series Sunday by downing the Tigers 4-3 in extra innings.

With such a one-sided series, though, there just won't be a good mix when it comes down to those we consider to be winners and losers.

Also like those 2007 Rockies, Detroit was the team that made the most unforced errors, while the Giants carried their momentum forward from their improbable 3-1 comeback against St. Louis in the National League Championship Series all the way to the championship Sunday night.

Here is a look at this World Series' biggest winners and losers.
