Al Alburquerque? As a Tiger fan I would feel real good about this series if I had any faith the bullpen could protect a 4 run lead in the 9th, unfortunately I don't.
Quadruple header today leading off with Reds v Giants in deciding game 5
Who is your Tiger tonight?
Tonight is the night we find out if JV is worthy of being mentioned in the same breath with the incomparable Jack Morris.
Sabermetric over analysis warning: JV is 29 years old. Jack Morris was 29 in 1984.
I'm going with Justin Verlander as player of the game
Or at least harass the worst commish in sports.
The NHL office's number is 212-789-2000, let it ring. Extension 2101 is Gary Bettman himself. Be Civil, no profanity, and tell him and his penny pinching owners to end the lockout.
This hangs in the balance.
EDIT: Title changed to help with reading comprehension
My sister, a recent M grad, is currently working in American Samoa for WorldTeach, which is similar to Teach for America except that it takes place all over the world. Somewhat surpisingly, Samoa puts a lot of guys in the NFL for such a small country, and Samoans are pretty fond of football. One of the classes that my sister is teaching is grades 3 and 4 combined, and they were stunned when they found out their teacher went to the same school as Tom Brady. Well, the class was assigned to create a song about Manu'a (their Island) and Fitiuta (their village). Here's what they came up with (lyrics below):
Hail! to Manu'a People
Hail! to Fitiuta Students
Hail! Hail! Our school will never rest.
Hail !to Manu'a People
Hail to Fitiuta Students
Hail! Hail! Level 3 and 4 is the best.
Interested to see how this inaugral one game Wildcard matchups unfolds. I don't like the idea of a one and done in baseball, but I'm listening.
Cards v Braves in first game: This is a wild one so far with the Cards up 3-2 in the 5th. Looked as though the Braves had tied game in bottom 4 but runner was (rightfully) called out for interference while trying to beat out a bunt, and the tying run came off the board
Orioles v Rangers in second game: Go Orioles. Based on last season no team scares me more than the Rangers, so I would like to see the O's advance. It wil be Yu Darvish for the Rangers matching up against Joe Saunders for the O's.
