He looks like Tom Cotter the comedian from AGT. In my opinion anyway.
OT: Tiger pregame/MLB open thread. Who's your Tiger tonight
Orioles win. Gonna take 5, which means the winning team will be playing their 5th consecutive game. Not exactly huge like other sports, but it should help us, especially if Baltimore has to fly to Detroit right after a probable win
Looking ahead, who do you think we match up best with next round? Yanks have no pitching besides CC Fatbathia. Their offense isn't doing well either. O's seem scarier to me. Good mix of vets and youth. Pitching is better as well. Only plus to playing Baltimore is we would be at home. Thoughts?
Let's wait six more outs before having this discussion.
5 outs left.
Nobody's throwing in the bullpen. Let's keep it that way. Ride your stud.
...that could be misinterpreted...
JV's thrown 111 pitches, do you send him out for 1 more?
I say yes, half becuase I'm afraid of seeing Valverde again this series, half because it's Justin-freaking-Verlander.
Does the pope shit in the woods?
And there's been a rash of Catholic bears around these parts lately.
All in a day's work for JV.
It's the 4th quarter in a tie game. Michigan just got the ball on their 20. Do you send Denard into the game?
The answer, of course, is YES!
Jim better let JV finish what he started. 3 more outs.
Suck it coco. 3 outs until the ALCS
So send out Phil Coke to close this out right?
Only because we no longer have Jason Grilli.
You have to let JV come back out. Drew, Cespedes and Smith are a combined 1-9 with 5 k's.
No one is warming up. JV has the 9th.
Here we go....
He would be ROY if Trout wasn't in The Bigs
Golden sombrero baby.
Verlander with an MLB record. 22 K's in a division series
Verlander deserves some Upton loving after tonight's game!
JV is the shit. Love it
KATE UPTON TIME.
Take time to realize what kind of pitcher you're watching. FUCK YES JV!
You know what the funny thing is? I didn't think he had the really good stuff tonight. He was nasty as hell, but not, like, silly good the way he can sometimes be. As far as pure stuff as compared to what he can bring, I think he had his B+ game tonight. And he still just mowed fools down.
Oh agreed, he really didn't feature the curve all that often tonight, when he did it wasnt the steep break that it usually has.
Yup, and he missed more often than he usually does with the fastball. But the changeup was just completely unfair tonight, and he mentioned in the postgame that it was working for him.
ALCS bound!!!! Hell yes!!! JV is the man!
GOD DAMN IS JUSTIN GOOD.
It was the most painful professional game I have ever attended. Thank god we pulled it out in 5!
BEAT BALTIMORE/NEW YORK
that this is the first time in history that all the divisional series have gone to five games.
ALCS baby! Go Tigers! JV was a fucking beast!
PARTY PARTY PARTY
Dumbass stats like this are why baseball is awesome: It's the first postseason series in which three runs have scored via wild pitch since 1911. You just don't get that kind of esoteric goofiness in other sports, and not just because of the length of time.
