Red Sox defeat Tigers 5-2, Advance to World Series

So I sit here, slowly drinking a glass of Johnnie Walker Black, thinking about the Tigers’ season. How it ebbed and flowed, from the highest highs to the lowest lows, sometimes within the same 9 innings. It occured to me that baseball is one of the most emotional things there is. Abject failure. Unbelievable, unthinkable […]

Can Max save our season?

ALCS Game 6: Tigers (2-3) @ Red Sox (3-2)

It’s do or die tonight, as the Tigers face off against the Red Sox in game 6 of the ALCS. The Tigers send Max Scherzer (2-0, 2.25 ERA) to the mound to extend their season, while the Red Sox counter with Clay Buchholz (0-0, 6.17 ERA). If anyone can give the Tigers a chance to […]

Rain rain, go away.

ALCS Game 5: Red Sox (2-2) @ Tigers (2-2)

The Tigers send Anibal Sánchez back to the mound while the Red Sox send out Jon Lester in a rematch of the game 1 starters. The Tigers took game 1, but Sánchez was as wild as he was unhittable, walking 6 in 6 hitless innings (to go with 12 strikeouts). Lester was also good, allowing […]

Fister was strong.

Leyland Shuffles the Lineup, Tigers Win 7-3, These Things May or May Not Be Related

The Tigers’ revamped lineup jumped on Jake Peavy and the Red Sox for five second inning runs and never really looked back, as the team ended up rolling 7-3, and tied the ALCS 2 games apiece. Doug Fister went 6, allowing 1 run on 8 hits and 1 walk, while striking out 7. Four relievers […]

Jim Leyland boldly goes where Jim Leyland has rarely gone before.

ALCS Game 4: Red Sox (2-1) @ Tigers (1-2)

WHOA WHOA WHOA STOP THE PRESSES. Jim Leyland, long criticized by armchair managers for being a stick in the mud and resistant to change, has shuffled his starting lineup! Most notably, Austin Jackson has been dropped to #9, while Miguel Cabrera has been moved up to bat in the 2 hole! Will these moves pay […]

I am in despair!

Tigers Threaten But Do Not Score; Red Sox Grab 2-1 Series Lead

The Tigers once again wasted Justin Verlander brilliance as the bats failed to make a dent against Boston’s John Lackey. Lackey was good, but the Tigers had their chances against him and Boston’s relievers and couldn’t push any runs across the plate. Verlander was once again terrific, but for one mistake to Mike Napoli. He […]

Verlander looks to continue his brilliant postseason stretch today.

ALCS Game 3: Red Sox (1-1) @ Tigers (1-1)

The Tigers hope to shake off the disappointment following a painful loss in Boston the other night, and Justin Verlander (1-0, 0.00 ERA) is just the man to help them do that. Verlander has been brilliant thus far in the postseason and since September 1st, he’s thrown 54.2 IP, posting a 1.65 ERA. In his […]

Tiger ‘Pen Blows Big Lead Late, Team Heads Back to Detroit With Disappointing Split

Short recap tonight because the rage, it flows within me and I can only contain it so long. The Detroit Tigers had a 5-1 lead. They were six outs away from coming back to Detroit with a 2-0 ALCS lead and possibly a stranglehold on the series. Now they’re coming home to Detroit with a […]
