Tigers Win! (Again!!)

Wow: This Tigers win was the best one yet:

TWO HITS?!?!

It's true: They ARE the reincarnation of last year's White Sox -- pitching wins championships.

This series is over by the time you're back at work on Monday.

Mets-Cards up next...

Another World Series for the AL Central is inevitable.

Next year's AL Central will be even stronger.

2007 AL Central
Best. Division. Ever?

Bah. Tigers still have to get past the Mets. There will be so many people on the Tigers bandwagon, they'll crash.

Mets will be 11-0 this postseason.

Also, commence the 'The only baseball team to come back from a 3-0 deficit' talk. Simmons should be happy.

Well, chrth is right to urge caution and say that the Tigs must still: 1) Hold that AL Pennant in their hands, and; 2) Get past the NL Champ, and it won't be easy. I won't speculate on whether or not they'll do it.

However, Oakland is not a bought team like the 2004 Red Sox. This is a group of young guys who don't pitch or field very well. You can excuse me for doubting.

As for the Tigers bandwagon? I hate bandwagoners. If you weren't to a game in 2003, I would appreciate you getting off. I remember sitting through a rain-soaked game at the Copa when Detroit was getting beaten down by the 2003 version of Oakland. Man, there were like 100 of us left in the stadium at the end. Anyone else want to claim being there?

2007 AL Central: Best.Division.Ever? Not with the Royals, no.

so seriously, can we get off of the Yankees and Joe Torre now? If the A's can't manage 1 win v. Det and they were sitting around waiting for Det to fly out to alameda county stadium...

not to mention the A's had the best record in baseball since July according to Tim Mc.

Good point about the Royals.

And I wasn't ever "on" the Tigers bandwagon. Heck no, I'm a White Sox fan all the way. However, given my choices right now in the playoffs, I have to pull for Detroit.

Would you rather us hate them instead?

Dagnabbit, I jinxed the Mets. I *am* an asshole!

I can't wait until we talk about the frostbite injury to the Steelers guard.

This is interesting:

When Kenny Rogers took the mound Friday for the Tigers, it was the eighth time in the 2006 playoffs in which a game was started by a pitcher who was over 40 years old. From 1903 to 2005, only nine postseason games were started by pitchers over 40.

[Elias Sports Bureau]

Now that Game 5 is guaranteed in the Mets/Cards series, Glavine should make 9. Presuming the Tigers don't pull a Yankees, Rogers should pitch in the World Series, making 10. Wow.

Smack-

No, I prefer indifference. There is a middle ground between hate and love.

Save your hate for the Yankees.

Orange draw first blood! Deacons draw first blood! Where the heck is the CFB post?!?

Dan Mega said...

Tigers are going to the World Series.

Holy Shit.

I think that the Tigers bandwagon is strong enough to hold anyone who wants to jump on. And why not? What Jim Leyland has done with this years team is nothing short of phenomenal.

This years version of the Tigers is the feelgood story of the year. Let's not forget that not only do the Tigers have a great pitching staff but offensively, they've been smacking the ball around pretty well.

I'm picking the Tigers to win the WS just because of the fact that whoever comes out of the NL has big question marks with their starting pitching.
