"...don't believe something because an "expert" is saying it. Believe it because of the evidence."
Runs?!?!?!? What?? Come on Jhonny tie this game up!
Fair ball!!!! Tie game.
Tied up! Wow did Comerica wake up!
Keep it rolling!!!
Just here, watching the game with a beer at 1:52 PM (CT) with the girl that comes help us clean the house -She likes baseball and I don't mind- What a bum I am...
Your team ties the game back up and you turn around and serve up the meatiest of meatballs I have ever seen.
And there is Moss finally introducing himself in the series
He now has 5 HR's in 5 games at Comerica this year, unreal.
Tigers have all those righties, and he feasts on that
Damn needed a shutdown inning Sanchez
Get him out of there Leyland.
Picked a hell of a day to get rocked
At least we scored. See ya'll next April.
Well, back to where we started.
So the guy who gave up just nine homers all season in 180-some innings gives up three in 4.1 frames. Mother fucker.
It's called pressure. Some players (like Verlander) absolutely thrive on it. Some players (like the guy giving up all the homers for the first time all year) fold up and die.
Sanchez was money in the playoffs last year. Way to use a decent sample size to decide whether someone's clutch. You sound like ESPN after Lebron misses a game tying shot.
But that's the problem with the playoffs. It is a small sample size and always will be given the small number of games played. So while he might've been "money" last year he certainly wasnt today when the Tigers needed him the most.
But I'm sure Peyton Manning would agree with you. The greatest regular season QB in league history has a somewhat checkered record in the playoffs and for some reason people (and not just me) only know him for those shortcomings when it matters most.
Verlander has been a mediocre starter in the playoffs in his career. He's 6-4 with a 3.86 ERA and whip of 1.2. Before his last start those numbers were considerably more rotund.
Verlander's actually not been very good in the playoffs until last season. Decidely mediocre at best.
Alvarez, why not Porcello? I have no confidence in any reliever in the bull pen outside of Smyly, Veras and Rondon.
Because this game may already be over. Save him for tomorrow.
Unless a 2.00 ERA and 24/26 saves isn't good enough for you. No idea why you put Veras and Rondon on that list, but leave off Benoit.
Matt Vasgersian is a fucking tool.
He's from around Oakland and is an A's fan. He is pretty much openly rooting for the A's...
Absolutely embarrassing that MLB would have him calling this game.
I like him, but that's mainly because I think he does a good job on the MLB video games.
Vasgersian screaming like a little kid when Oakland has hit their homers. Still embarrassing in what is supposed to be a neutral broadcast.
Needs to learn to draw walks or bunt for base hits.
This got interesting pretty quickly.
Anyone watching care to explain wtf just happened? Radio has no idea...
Looks like Balfour was jawing to Martinez, and VMart was not happy about it.
Okay interesting, thanks.
Balfour likes to jaw in general.
Balfour's a real psycho. I don't know that he was saying anything specific to VMart though, but VMart clearly said something along the lines of "fuck you bitch".
Oh certainly, it looks like both were at fault. Obviously being bias ill side with the guy with the better track record in V-Mart. What a bizarre circumstance in a playoff game though, just real bizarre.
Yep, really strange. Not sure it was necessary for the bullpens to clear haha
Do you have to say anything when you're on the mound? Just throw the ball. If you get jacked after a big out that's fine, but it's every damn pitch with him. I'm surprised he doesn't get into stuff more often.
Of course I saw him pitch this year in a game where I was a neutral observer and don't remember having any negative impression of him. So yes I'm bitter.
I would tend to agree with you, and it certainly wouldn't be my style if I were a pitcher.
Benches and Bullpens cleared.
Bench clearing got me excited for game 4
Hopefully it'll get our offense excited too.
What a classless piece of shit
Has pine tar under the bill of his cap...
