Hopefully this game will last a little longer than last night's. Lets go tigres!
Niko Porikos grew up in an NTDP billet home. Cool story.
I really hope the yanks get fisted.
That's one hell of a way to win a game certainly...
Rays just went up 3-0 on Texas, at Texas. Craziness continues.
So, does Leyland stick with Inge? Perhaps through his first AB and then as long as the game permits to stick with the defensive advantage? I would let Inge hit his first AB and then take it from there. If Inge can stay in the game and not come up to bat in a big situation, I'd rather have his glove in there.
That park is EMPTY
Brandon Inge did something that wasn't stupid!
Fortunately Inge caught Posada to flip the bases for us.
Ok, let's all settle down. C'mon Fister!!
Fister. Settle down dude.
Fister is looking a little erratic. Need to get out of this inning unscathed and settle down.
Way to get out of that inning!
Wooo! Big strikeout of Granderson after K'ing Jeter. Now let's get some baserunners!
It's not very often that I root against Curtis Granderson. But I'm a big fan of that strike out.
Mister Fister. Let's go offense!!
it appears the Yankees are going to score some runs tonight.
Not sure if this was answered in another thread but is there any way Verlander can go tomorrow? I'd rather have Scherzer pitching at home.
4K's thru 2 innings
Fister appears to have settled down quite nicely.
TBS should never show baseball. awful.
be rooting for the Yankees any more blatantly?
Fister looks good...what an amazing pitcher he has been for us.
And i cannot believe how many empty seats there are in that stadium!
What's up with the whining about the announcers constantly? The only thing I've noticed of them is how they are (rightfully) all over Fister's domination of the Yankees thus far.
We need to get a baserunner this inning and get something going, though.
what happens in these playoffs, we are going to be a BITCH to beat for a few years to come.
Great young talent on this team.
This TBS K-zone thing is awful. If you're going to have it up there all the time, then it should at least be accurate.
A. Does TBS still do Braves games.
B. If they do, they should at least know how to put on a decent broadcast. Hell use the damn Braves announcers for all I care. At least they know what they're doing.
C. I'm pretty sure TBS stopped doing Braves games a few years ago. I'm just drunk.
The play-by-play guy is the lead announcer for Brewers games on FSN. I think he does a good job.
Bautista is a Tiger now! TBS said so
that is very telling
First error of the game ran out of beer in the 4th. Luckily there is a liquor store the street.
out at the plate damn it
mother of ass
I don't know why, probably because I'm drunk, but I expected Granderson just to try to throw that home and Avila to make it in time. Didn't even think about that whole cut-off man thing.
why would you send him even if he was safe you don't send Avila.
how many runners have we gotten thrown out at home this year 1000?
Probably about 10. I'm not thrilled about the decision, but TBS didn't show a good shot of Avila running the bases so we can't be sure it was totally his fault.
The announcers were saying that Avila let up at some point. Also, didn't expect that throw to get cut.
Also, again, it was great baserunning to get those runners to second and third despite the cutoff right next to second.
That said, Y U NO SCORE RUN TIGERS??
way to use the whole park fister!
I'm not sure how I feel about Leyland putting in Betemit, especially this early.
really scare me on the Yankees, Granderson and Cano.
Rayburn at 2nd base scares me too.
just as i hit send.....
son of a monkeys butthole
That would also be acceptable.
used it in this thread. Can't steal ma mojo
I think those fans saw the Steve bartman show the other night. They didn't want any part of that ball.
EDIT: I said this before Smoltz.. I'm not a douche.
Whose leading off for tigers? We need some offence!
