OT: Tigers-Yankees Game 4 open thread
Anyone know of a stream? Fuck being in class during this.
people should really start to bookmark these websites
Cibathia on pace for a 189 pitch game. It's ok though, he'll have over 100 days of rest.
As a Yankee fan: fuck. he won't be able to pitch on 2 days rest in Game 5. On the other hand, there won't be a game 5. I'm just hoping they lose now so this embarrassing postseason ends without further games and A-Rod/Granderson talk (except A-Rod trade talk, that's always welcome if true). Go Tigers!
As a Yankee fan, i'm hoping it ends today. No reason to postpone the execution. Team looks lost out there and now Tex, one of the best fielding first baseman just made 2 errors (unless you believe the scorer's nice benefit to fielder).
It'll be nice to stop talking about A-Rod ineptitude (and hopefully get rid of him for a turkey sandwich), Rob Deer - oops, I mean Granderson, Swisher, etc.
That inning really inflated Scherzer's pitch count. He isn't on pace to make it through the 6th now, which is a big deal with our pen.
Chavez is a 2-time Golden Glove winner? I've never seen a more pathetic fielder.
Wow defensive edge is clearly in the tigers favor this series. Who would have thunk it? I know people have already commented how homer the broadcast is towards yankees struggling hitting instead of tigers dominating SP. Its worth noting again though.
the commentary insanely off-kilter? I just assumed it was some New York feed. Anyway, when the Tigers are making the commentators eat crow inning in and inning out, it ain't all bad.
At least they've stopped saying, "The Yankees are never out of a game! Almost too relaxed," ad nauseum.
EDIT: I HATE the Yankees, but can't help feeling badly for Sabathia here. Ouch.
Turner Broadcasting System is a subsidiary of Times Warner who pretty much runs shit in NYC, think Comcast in Michigan. That could have something to do with it.
...I thought the Yankees looked old during last year's playoffs. How the hell did they manage to win the division this year? Sure, Boston imploded but Tampa is a damn good team.
Yankees are old and are used to being able to coast he last 7-10 days of the season in order to get ready for playoffs. The Orioles forced them to play everyday and then played them in a tough 5 game ALDS, where multiple games went 12-13 innings. Yankees just ran out of juice and if not for Ibanez they would not have beat Baltimore to even get here. Go Tigers!!!!
This game is over.
Looking Very Good through 4 innings....7 K's! Yankees look disinterested or OLD...maybe both? Too bad the Orioles couldn't have scored a few more runs....they may have given Detroit a little better series? I definitely don't think they would have got swept, which seems to be the result of this series.
There we go! Finally putting some runs on the board, especially earlier in games.
....Cabrera says hello!!!
for the ages.
EDIT: I started feeling sorry for Sabathia way too early!
Cabrera absolutely crushed that pitch. MVP!!!
This could get ugly. Me like.
Peralta hits it out. 6-0.
Batting practice for the tigers!
So Professor, have you warmed to Leyland or do you still want him gone?
I see ya Jhonny
Ok, do we make a game of in & bring in Valverde for the 5th inning? Give'em at least a sporting chance?
Stop it Delmon
This...this is going quite well.
Stop it Peralta
Stick a fork in 'em. Sabathia's tossing beach balls.
Stop it dirks
It's a real shame the Yankees shut down during this series. I would have liked to see a series longer than 4 games.
Lot of time off for the Tigers, that could be a good thing...or a bad thing. Anyways, good luck to them in the World Series
...definitely a bad thing 2006.
Not necessarily a long wait. Cards Giants could end tomorrow.
And CC is done.
6-0...I am going to have to take my mother-in-laws broom to complete my sweep celebration!
Other than the 4 runs Valverde gave up in game 1, it's been total domination. Do the Yanks even have the will left to manage a hit today? Wow!
Not cool man..
Scherzer is on a strict 100 pitch limit, so no harm done. Unless you think our bullpen can come in for three hitless innings... lolz.
Just giving him a hard time. It would be nice for Scherzer to leave the game with it regardless if it holds though.
Right now, Tigers' starting pitchers have a series ERA of 0.33 and a WHIP of 0.75. Totally insane.
Who would have guessed that the pitcher who got the Tigers bats going would be CC freakin' Sabathia? This team is truly built for the post-season and I for one feel real good about their chances.
