Sigh, Texas hitting early, 1-0
If only we could skip 1st innings and 11th innings.
The number "one" cursed Detroit.
that would work?
Honestly, if we had even a minute amount of offense on our team, we would have won been even in this series by now.
try looking on justtvnuts.com
The obliques have the Tigers looking bleak.
Winning this series is almost out of the question but not quite. I would still give the Tigers about a 20% chance if not for the injuries to Young and Martinez. The Tigers either need to score some runs today (not likely) or Verlander is going to have to go the distance and shut them out the rest of the way (somewhat likely).
I don't think I've ever seen two of a teams best hitters hit home runs on consecutive nights and come up bittersweet cause they pull oblique muscles on the swing. What are the odds? I think the Tigers would have won last night with a healthy Young and Martinez.
Wilson looking dominant so far but the Tigers should be able to get to him for at least a couple runs.
Viva Avila. This team battles day in and day out and I love it.
AVILA! I'm happy for Alex. He is pretty damn beat up and hasn't had a good postseason so far. It's too bad that VMart was injured for much of the 2nd half of the season and we couldn't give Avila much rest. He's been a warrior out there.
Did the feed on http://www.Justtvnuts.com/fox.htm just go away for anyone else?
Yeah, it did for me. I found another feed on Justin.tv but that was blocked 5 minutes later.
Tigers take lead!
It seems like the only way either team can score in this series is by hitting home runs.
Well, it's sure not gonna be with baserunning.
omg that would have been devestating, we're still in it
To everyone that was/is whining about JV not pitching game 4 so he could pitch game 7*. Honestly, JV isn't even our second best pitcher in the postseason so far. Scherzer and Fister have been better imo.
*if we are lucky enough to make it that far.
Verlander is not the reason the Tigers are struggling. They can't hit the ball outside of solo homeruns.
They only have two singles and both of those came from Santiago. The rest of the team has not done squat.
Austin Jackson has looked like a deer in the headlights while batting.
I hope you are right concerning Verlander being our third best pitcher as Scherzer will pitch game six and Fister will pitch game seven.
I'm not saying he's the reason we're losing, just hasn't been as good as fister or scherzer.
Tigers give Rangers extra out for the third time this game. They can call that hit but that is an error all day every day on Jackson.
Austin Jackson should apologize to Verlander and tell Inge thank you.
Now lets get some hits!!!!
I was just sitting here wondering if Penny were on the roster and there he is warming up. Not a comforting sign.
JV the warrior gets out of the 6th pitching on fumes.
With that double play.
there we go
Man that was good to see. Now if Penny can just close this bad boy out
Holy shit VMART!!
Holy Shit DELMON!~!
Delmon Young 2 run HR... 6-2 Tigers bot. 6th
And I quote the Graaate John Mayer?!
MY BODY IS A WONDERLAND!
McCarver is clueless
Point one. as McCarver was ''analyzing'' what Jackson's options were when he dropped the ball, Buck finally just said '' how about just catching the ball''
Point two. McCarver still seems unaware of Cabrera's ball hitting the bag and taking the bad hop over Beltre's glove. McCarver going on and on about what a tough fair foul call it was for the third base ump.
That was great batting inning. We need more of those for game six and game seven.
Breathing room for JV. Coke for the 8th and 9th?
Keep pitching JV until they get runners on. He won't be pitching until game one of the World Series so you might as well use him up.
I feel better with JV in than Phil Coke.
Flashback to 1987. JV is pitching like a latter day right handed Top Banana Frank Tanana. Killing them softly with off speed stuff.
Man JV had fire in his eyes walking of the mound in the 7th. He is pitching the 8th.
MISOPOGON I think I need my own blog can you hook me up
Cabrera's ass weighs more than Uehara
needless to say we need him to play well.
to drive a dagger through Tiger hearts tonight. . .
Great game JV. Great effort. You keep this up and they will start comparing you to Jack Morris and Mickey Lolich in Tiger lore.
Pitching to Cruz was a bad idea though...
7 1/3 the day Leyland says that he won't pitch their setup man or closer. I think that was our managers way of challenging Verlander. He met the challenge.
I have great confidence in Coke
He had good stuff last inning.
I hope to see more of that out of him.
Does Coke Pitch the 9th
he starts off anyway
Sherzer better make Victor Cruz wear one tomorrow in his first AB.
thankfully they don't play tomorrow
Touché, then in game 6 Sat. night.
Yeah buddy, and thankfully M is invading Spartan stadium at noon. It would be strange if M and Tigers played at the same time this Saturday. Bars would have half the people pulling for M half the people pulling for MSU and everybody pulling for the Tigers.
I agree. Stay with Coke
Dear baby Jesus. Get an out.
all my symptoms are gone.
Saturday can't get here fast enough.
It may be difficult for some (me) to keep perspective, but this should be an enjoyable Saturday. MSU week and Game 6!
Scherzer has pitched well and the tigers are capable of "stealing" a game. Then you get Fister in game 7 and I still like the chances.
Good game by the home team, but I-tell-you-what those Texas Rangers do not go off quitely into the night! Let's do this again Saturday, Go Tiges!
