Go Tigers! Down 1-0 in the 1st. Let's do this.
this may be of some local interest
Miggy grounded into a double which scored the man on third.
The "return" button is getting in some work today.
Can't find it on Firstrowsports or atdhe...
error by the pitcher. On a side note, does anybody else not like the new 2-3 format, with the higher seed starting on the road? Not sure what was wrong with the old 2-2-1 format, and I don't see why the lower seed should get to start at home.
Especially since the higher seed could sweep the series and only have one home game. It's kind of unfair to the fans and the team loses money.
*Insert infield fly rule joke here*
Playoffs Verlander makes me sad. He walks way too many batters.
Yeah. We should really trade him this offseason or something.
Delmon Young is now zip for three in base stealing attempts this year. Still, 2-1 Tigers.
Verlander has thrown 78 pitches through 4 innings, per the broadcast team. He just gave up what is only the third hit to the A's though, so it hasn't been a bad performance at all.
As for base stealing, surely if you employ Willie Stargell's stragey and slide ten feet short, get up quickly and signal time out, you shall be successful here.
Go Tigers! World series champs this year.
Verlander is dealing right now. I just hope our bullpen doesn't cave in when we have to pull him. I think his pitch count is too high to go the distance.
JV is most likely done, quite incredible he lasted 7 innings the way his pitch count was early.
Goddamn that was close Benoit.
/exhale, thank you cold weather! 3 more outs and its a perfect sports Saturday.
Well, here we go. Just need 3 outs Papa. Let's go!
Game 1 to the good guys!! That's huge.
Where has this version of Valverde been all year??
EAT EM UP
Tremendous pitching, and timely hitting. Playoff baseball anyone?
Good win by the Tigers. If Fister is solid, we should win again today (hooray for stupid 2-3 format!!!).
On a side note, anybody see that Francona was hired by the Indians? I am incredibly surprised that he went there. Could have waited for a better job to open up IMO.
