Niko Porikos grew up in an NTDP billet home. Cool story.
F Boston and your funny accents too
Is electric today at Comerica. The Tigers will need a pick me up after being shellshocked on Sunday and I think an active crowd can do that for them.
Go Tigers! It would be so nice to see JV completely own the Red Sox after the crap we had to put up with Sunday.
Will definitely be electric. They always are. And the cheer JV and the boys get will be awesome.first time the home crowd gets to cheer JV for his game 5 masterpiece vs Oakland.
That being said, I have this terrible feeling this is a must win game (I know, 4 more games.) But to go down this series after surrendering 1 hit in 15 innings is a backbreaker.
Go tigers fergodsakes!!
The crowd must have stolen the electricity from the lights
I would pay Fox or MLB a considerable amount of money to be able to stream this game at work. I am getting so insanely frustrated with these awful internet streams. I can't believe they would schedule a game at this time and not offer any way to watch the game. If TBS can figure it out, you'd think Fox would be able to.
Early strike zone isn't consistent at all. Verlander not getting the outside corner to lefties and Lackey is.
Oh come on play the game until the lights come back, there's plenty of natural light for another hour.
it's a day game right? the first nite playoff game was in 1971, iirc. play the damn game. you don't need any lights.
Regarding Detroit's bankruptcy and the lights going out?
I'll say every late night show and every sportscenter. So who wants the under on 100%?
Rain will most certainly play a role late in this game, they're playing in the window right now to get the game in before the clouds open up around 7:00-7:30.
It just wouldn't be a Tiger postseason without a delayed JV postseason start.
Per Erin Andrew: Jim Leyland used the power outage as an opportunity to smoke a cigarette. Old school.
If I didn't watch a lot of baseball, I would be convinced that John Lackey is the greatest pitcher to ever grace God's green earth based on this game. You'd have trouble convincing me otherwise.
Fortunately, you probably mean second best of all time. Thank god JV put on his big boy pants today.
Why am I feeling a 2-1 or 3-2 loss coming on (that's a reverse jinx in our favor btw).
I hate those damn beards. I really hope the Tigers win.
Seeing Jhonny get big hits is even more sweet after the reports of Red Sox players whining about him are out.
Now someone just needs to drive him in.
It's becoming pretty clear that not resigning him would be a mistake. The window is open now.
Is the outside corner a strike or a ball? Does it depend who is pitching? I feel like this ump has been consistently inconsistent.
Come on Dirks, see done damn pitches...
Really need a competent left fielder going into next season.
Nick Castellanos?? Not much on the free agent market aside from Choo.
But just saying....the same castellanos who only a yr and a half ago was a third baseman?
Not much in the farm system either.
No snark taken, I guess I'm just assuming his defense can't be as bad as Delmon Young who we trotted out there for a few months in 2011.
DY also crushed the ball in the post season. We could use some of that.
90 pitches through 6 for JV. Time to get some runs on the board.
Middle of the sixth and it's only 6:15. hehe
Where it would be beneficial if Jackson sprained his ankle.
Don't let Hunter off the hook, he's been just as bad without the gold glove caliber defense.
When will the Tigers learn to lay off that curve ball away? Jeeeeez..
Now everyone going to bitch that leyland left him in too long?
Can't blame JV or Leyland. You can't win a ballgame without scoring a run. Jackson and Hunter continue to be absolutely useless. Prince is also in that category.
i kid - everyone blames leyland for the last game for pulling Scherzer too early.
the manager really is not to blame in either
Craptacular. On the 100th pitch.
well their starter will be tired too or a closer is coming in, we need some hits now
Damn, at least Cabrera is guaranteed to come up with two outs on the ninth if we continue to suck at the plate.
Well this blows.
Down 1-0 with the bullpen coming in...not looking good
We can't trade him and Castellanos to KC for Alex Gordon and Billy Butler.
that's just wonderful.
Do we have any alternatives at AAA for Jackson and Hunter???? I mean seriously, these guys have been abysmal!!!
Not funny. Possibly true, but not funny
Well, we have Coke warming up in the bullpen. That should be entertaining.
NOW WE NEED BATS
