need something to take my mind off of this shit. Answer: Baseball!
OT: ALCS Game 1 Open Thread
Ok. Now it's baseball time. Fuck, we should have won that game though
Time for baseball
anyone have a link to stream the game?
Boohoo, UM loses in a game they deserved to lose in regulation and they all run to post unique bitching threads rather than calm down and shift to baseball
fuckty fucky fuck fuck fuck
Did half of baseball get into civil war reenactment?
I didn't realize we were playing the Amish Mafia.
Someone is going to get tossed, and soon. They're chirping hard at Joe West.
Well that football game was awful.
Had to get that out now onto baseball, from what I've seen Anibal looks really sharp but a really high pitch count through 4 innings, we're gonna need some runs before this becomes a bullpen game.
9 of 12 batters KO'd. That's filthy.
10 of 15. Jeez
But I'm sure you're aware
Stop running into outs, this is stupid.
What the hell is Hitlessias doing in the lineup?
Somehow I don't think a 10-0 Tiger win would make me feel a lot better tonight.
Other than this booze this is the only thing that can keep me from absolutely losing my mind.
This game may end up hurting more than helping...
to get any hits AT ALL?
What a d-bag
Says the unsayable after Sanchez K
Now fox ran a graphic
Big spot for V-Mart here, unfortunatley we probably need a double to score Cabby from 2nd.
Yay. Some joy!
Atta boy Jhonny! 1-0 Tigers, eat em up.
Fuck you peralta. You cheating fuck.
Let me go back 10 years to find a comeback. Fantastic.
So cheating isn't cheating? They both cheated, and they both served their time....
And is still doesn't change that I hate Jhonny peralta. Who spells their name that way anyways.
Has never done anything. Give me a break. A good portion of MLB has been on some shit at some point.
Anyway, thank you for posting how everyone would think the classy Red Sox fan base would post like. Kudos masshole!
I'm not a masshole, dickhead. I'm from right here in Michigan. I just grew up watching the sox. Baseball is full of fucking cheaters and liars. They are in every team. Plus I'm still a little pissed about earlier. So I'm taking it out on Peralta.
Are you a Dallas Cowboys fan too, by chance?
Nope packers if you must know.
Wow. Any nhl?
Wings. I watched what my pops watched as a kid.
And the pistons too. I like 2 of the 4 Detroit teams.
Come on Boston get that run back
Fire Borges. Go Tigers!!
This is gonna be Sanchez' last inning.
How the hell does Victorino not get tossed for that F-bomb?
C'mon Sanchez. Get out of this.
Need this Sanchez!
This night can't possible allow for the tigers to blow a lead too can it?
wooo hooo. now we just have to survive the relief corps.
Come on tack on one or two more
Wow, that's certainly a way to end your night. Pretty ridiculous situation but he's going to get pulled during a no-hitter (it's the right call too.)
Trying to say anything to jinx Sanchez.
I thought the TBS crew was bad. This is insulting.
It's nice to see McCarver going all Corso by repeating things Buck said 2 minutes earlier.
Well that stinks.
Great pitching by Sanchez.
Good job Jon. Bats didn't help you.
Let's see a good combined effort!
Do your ONE inning (hopefully) of work efficiently.
6 walks doomed him.
Al Al should not see any meaningful innings. I am first guessing this decision.
Why not try to get smyly out there for 2 innings?
Edit: Second first guess here.
Edit 2: These words taste delicious.
Awful base running.
Clap-clap, holy shit Al New Mexico looked sharp that inning
Nice inning from Al. Maybe great pitching is contagious for us, just like our poor hitting has been a team wide affliction.
This Red Sox team does.
Given that last strike was a tad low, but they act like every close call that doesn't go their way is the worst call in MLB history.
That first slider looked good.
On the black is a strike, even at Fenway.
I expended too much energy into UM, and I'm falling asleep at this point... Please save my night, Tigers.
That isn't near enough to save the night for me
Not sure. why they haven't been ejected. Obvious profanity and complaining
Get these guys across.
And break it open.
He needs to throw 2 strikes there. Avila is a .227 hitter. I know he put a good swing on it there, but I don't know how you don't give him the take sign there.
That was close
not sure i take cabrera out here. he could potentially bat in the 9th in a key situation.
That's okay. DKB will come through in his spot!
15 Ks on the night.
16 and a complaint!
It feels like its 9-8. Meanwhile the Red Sox don't have a hit.
remark. I like McCarver, but
I hope they win!
EDIT: Make that 16
Holy crap that 3rd strike on Pedroria had some crazy movement. 16ks
keep bitching bosox.
Veras has nasty stuff tonight. Smyly isn't exactly a power pitcher. I know it's lefty lefty but still. This may be bad.
And it tastes good. Probably because I'm drunk.
The more you whine, Red Sox, the more you are getting rung up. 16 strikeouts on the night. I suggest shutting up.
just show bunt?
3 more outs, go get it Benoit.
Ugh. Are all sox games like this?
three runs in the top of nine would help
And we get one.
Jackson needs to hit 9th
Jackson needs to sit out a game or 2. He's worthless with a bad in his hands
Or 8th ahead of Iglesias.
This team's inability to bunt is unreal. You're a pro. It's pure hand-eye coordination.
Damn. No cabby here..
Someone needs to gif tootoo's death stare at the end of the wings game
Drew baby Drew
about 7/8ths of that ball was out of his glove.
Nice snag. Finish em!
Come on Joaquin.
Squandered yet again, close it out Benoit...please.
Leyland's over managing may have cost us here. I understand defensive replacements but in a 1 run game, we could have used Miggy at bat instead of Kelly there. It's just a theme tonight of second guessing all coaching moves for teams I follow, I guess. Except for Mike Babcock. All Hail Babcock!
This is Fenway. You cannot expect one run to be enough to beat the Red Sox. Especially in the playoffs.
To make matters worse, Peralta is out as well.
They couldn't leave Smyly in?????
three outs...don't care about the no hitter
EDIT: no runs as well...
This is too much for one sports day.
no 'easy' field goals here though
the worried fan shots on fox are disturbing
That was a beautiful pitch.
No handoff up the middle that loses two yards please...
Jeebus how many can he foul off?
SON OF A BITCH
No hitter gone, doesn't matter just get 2 more outs.
double play time
Alright. Just get the win
I knew he could do it! I had full confidence in him
yeah a hit
Fitz up the middle for a 3 yard loss.
In seriousness though, no-hitters are nice but I'll just take more runs than the other team.
it's not like they haven't had base runners tonight...
Throw him out....
The choking today has been epic.
throw to first a million times
If Benoit blows this I might need to be taken to jail.
Don't have a good feeling right now
Tiger hitters need to get guys in when on base. I think we've stranded 12 runners, which is ridiculous, but a theme for our offense this past month.
Forget the runner...
XB strikes out...
Forget the runner, get the batter out.
that little dude sure does have a big mouth
Anyone remember Fernando Rodney/Papa Grande?...it'll all work out...
A walk doesn't hurt here, honesty. The go ahead run is already at the plate.
there it is.
Or that. Nice save.
WEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE SOMETHING WENT RIGHT TONIGHT
Nice work tigers! Real team effort!!!
Phew! Tigers win!
Longest 1 0 game ever...
Eat em up Tigs!
Fox and their mics too close to the players . . . I heard a few "fuck yeahs" there
Thank goodness it didn't come down to field goals...
what a game! Memorable memorable memorable. Screw Michigan, at least the Tiges won.
Quintin Berry is in the big leagues? And with a playoff team? I find myself surprised by this.
I'd rather have Berry than Dirks any day
See you tonight at 8:00 for a 12-10 game.
Thought tonight's game was 9-8
If a 1-0 game can go 4 hours, I hate to think how long a 12-10 game might last. It seems like Red Sox games always last forever though. They are the slowest playing team in baseball by far!
Good bullpen management from Leyland tonight, got quality innings out of Veras and Al New Mexico. Pitching can carry this team if they get some semblance of an offense.
Pitching has been great. Tigers will need to score more runs though because this is not sustainable.
That's stupid. Berry sucks at everything except stealing second. He's terrible at the plate and in the field. Dirks can hit, play the field, and isn't terrible on the base paths.
Game 2: Scherzer
Game 3: Verlander
Game 4: Fister
Game 5: Sanchez
Game 6: Scherzer
Game 7: Verlander
Never has a Game 1 ALCS Win taste so soure!
