Fister and Peavy will be taking the hump. Eat 'em up, Tigers!
I like the Tigers chances here. Then again, I've liked their chances every game so far because I sincerely think that they are the better team and of course I am a fan of them. This is a must win and I really think it will depend more on the Tigers' starter than the other games, since it doesn't matter how good you pitch when you don't score a run. This is their opportunity to get the bats going. They know Peavy, they've hit Peavy, and they should have a good shot on this game, only if Fister and the pen deals well enough to keep them in it.
I have a good feeling about this matchup as well. I think our bats come alive and Fister throws well enough to win.
What on earth does Borges have to do with the Tigers? Absolutely nothing.
If that's how he wants to express himself, so be it.
I'm just going to go ahead and assume you don't understand the concept of Freedom of Speech.
EDIT: I do not have a problem with the guy having "Fire Borges" in his signature. He just added that. My issue and the Mod's issue was adding "Fire Borges" to every single comment he made regardless of whether or not it was even applicable to the discussion.
Has Brian made a rule outlawing "fire Borges" comments? Granted, it has nothing to do with the Tigers thread, but I viewed that as part of his signature. What does "I put up a tough front, but deep down I just want to be held" have to do with the Tigers?
He just added the sig. I don't have a problem with that at all. My signature was a punishment for fighting with Section 1 or someone like him. I kept it, because I thought it was funny.
I understand your edit and appreciate it. Why did you have to question my understanding of freedom of speech to make your point? That's bordering on a personal attack, (i.e., insulting my intelligence) when you know very little about me. My point is, there is a way to have a polite discussion, and questioning other's intelligence is not the way to do it.
People who claim Freedom of Speech when it so clearly does not apply is a pet peeve. Unless MGoBlog is owned by the government, Freedom of Speech is not applicable in any way shape or form. Brian could take his ban on politics a step further and ban discussions about unicorns (Why on earth would anyone want to do that?), and there is absolutely nothing the National Unicorn Association of America could do about it.
to make things a little more interesting. I really can't deal with the Boston sports scene having any more success any time soon.
Must win game tonight, hopefully the lineup change works out.

Unfortunately we have nobody to shake with. Still, maybe a little shake is all we need? Can I hope so?
i didn't think leyland would make a change, since the logical replacement at the top of the order (infante) has been struggling too. i love this lineup change. it likely takes an at bat away from jackson and gives it to one of our big boppers. i hope it works. go get 'em tigers!
eh gents? Always good to see the opponent's BP warming up in the second!
They've been auto outs as far as I cab remember. LM is terrible.
Austin Jackson getting booted from lead off to 8th. If Leyland wanted to send a message, consider it sent! that's a demotion! And honestly, it's warranted. AJ has basically crapped his pants in the playoffs.
Agree with those who think this is the Game the Gats break through.
I love the lineup today, hopefully it produces. Statistically, you want your best at 2,3, and 4.
Too bad fielder, at 3, is not one of our best
Borges.... He isn't going anywhere and this is a tigers thread
Go home. This is a tigers thread.
It is getting to a point where the "Fire Borges" trolling in threads that have nothing to do with Michigan's situation on offense might start landing people on a "short leash" list. This is really over the top. If someone is going to disrupt the conversation in other threads when there are numerous places for discussion already provided, actions might be taken.
I won't do anything here more than likely because I hope that people won't intentionally try to derail the discussion, but like I said, we're getting to a point where the definition of trolling might be re-examined, if you will.
Out of curiosity what is the blog's stance on promoting relegion?
How many times has Muggy struck out in consecutive at bats this season?
Why do the announcers always make the Tigers situation seem doom and gloom? "Racehorse inning" "Fister throws wild pitches" "Salt is the toughest out..." Please tell me if its just me.
It's not just you. They are trying to inject drama.
Well, first bullet avoided, but the bats look lost.
Anyone else having trouble with a bit of a choppy video out of Fox?
I have Comcast and I am as well.
With rod and mario, I just can't do these announcers who seem so biased against the tigers
break this open!!!
Peavy dips with impunity.
The absolute worst thing that could've happened....
Nope. Double play at home and first.
Crap!, too short, too long, who knows? anyways....
wtf are you doing? you have to tag on that.
Just sac fly will do
maybe the confidence boost he needs.
ZOMG WE SCORED
