Who do you love to watch fail most? Lebron, A-Rod, or Vick?
OT: 10-14-12 Tigers vs Yankees. Who's your closer?
Wow, real nice play by Cano extends the Perfect Game through 5 for Hiroki Kuroda.
Yes he is pitching a perfect game.
Aaaaaaand the score is tied. Whoopty-de-fucking do.
perfect game over
Peralta's defense has been tremendous this series... Saved us 2-3 runs in not even two games.
Hi, I'm having trouble with thefirstrow.eu stream...anyone have a stream that is working?
this site is just as good
Thanks so much!
Tie broken 1-0 Tigers!
That your foot doesn't actually need to be on the bag when you're going for the first of two outs on a double play? Because when the ball got to 2nd, his foot wasn't on the base.
It's an unwritten rule. The ump gives you the benefit of the doubt
Given the fact that the baserunner is trying to break up the DP and will probably slide in hard, the umpires generally allow the fielder quite a bit of leeway. Otherwise you'd see a lot more middle infielders getting spiked/sprained.
Nice ass-crack on the Yankee's Bartman.
Tigers up 2-1 as force out by Delmon plates QB. Probably would have been an inning ending double play if Cano doesn't drop the ball while preparing to throw to first.
Ok. Sanchez has pitched 6 strong innings and has thrown 89 pitches. Maybe Sanchez can go 8, but I would have AA warming up
Tigers up 2-1? Do you have a feed from the future?
oops. Don't know where that came from.
It came from the future...obviously.
If we get the bats going and this team should win it all. Thats a big if though.
Starting pitching has been oustanding.
Great job by Sanchez. John Smoltz thinks that was the end of the line for Sanchez and we will see Phil Coke in bottom 8.
4-5 insurance runs would be a nice thing.
Bullpen will need 2 clean innings, ughhhhh
Kuroda starting to leave some pitches up. AJ might get him here
hm..that was a pretty terrible call.
a gift. I like recieving gifts though.
I dunno, couldn't really tell if Cano tagged him
He got him in the chest/stomach when Infante's hand was still on the dirt before his stretch to the bag
From my view it was INCONCLUSIVE
Wow that was bad. Clearly out. Hopefully this doesn't turn into more
Infante is not good on the base paths. In Oakland he seemed to come off the base every time he slid into a base. If guys hold their tag on him, he'd be out every time.
Avasail sounds like a character out of the Diablo video game series.
hell yes! 2-0
ump, it ain't enough.
Ahh crap. Well I guess we need to hope Valverde comes in to give us a chance since the umps are against us as well.
Someone has to make up for the announcers being Yankee honks. I'll take the umps if they want to be the ones to do it.
Announcers don't have any effect on the game. Umps do. Your argument is dumb.
It was intended to be tounge in cheek.
You seem to have forgotten that the tigers had a lead before that bad call. If the game ends with this score that call is meaning less.
I mean I don't blame the umps for the game, just for the rest of the inning.
That said, our hitters wouldn't be able to hit a softball.
We take advantage of the gift. Hopefully the umps realize that 2 wrongs don't make a right!
The Yankees never get to benefit from poor umpiring!! Why is the world always against the Yankees?
Only downside to this: now the pundits are gonna chalk up this win (fingers crossed) to a blown call, not Garcia's gem of a game, solid defense, and just enough offense.
Go on to win the World Series and no one will remember it. Win the series in 4 or 5 games, and it's going to be hard to argue it mattered.
if the Tigers were playing anyone BUT the Yankees, you're absolutely right.
Of course, in the scheme of it all it won't matter. But, hey: Steve Bartman.
Anyone but Valverde.
Yankees down 2-0. Yankees could be swept. I'll be honest, I want the Yankees to win this series. But, objectively, this cannot be possible with the way the Yankees have struggled to hit all postseason. Detroit could win all 4 games, or even send New York to a 3-0 hole in Game 3.
It's getting to the point where I think Yankee fans must believe they have no chance of scoring off anyone but Valverde. If Tigers win today, a sweep becomes very likely.
They were pretty much shut out Game 1 too until the late innings. Can't remember if all 4 runs happened in 9th.
You must have been shitfaced if you don't know what happened last night
