I almost feel sorry for the Yankees.

Then I remember they're the Yankees, and I'm all like "Ha-Ha!"

/Because when your team folds like a cheap suit, the only reason to keep watching is to hope the Yankees get knocked out.

I hope JV pitches another gem tonight. I'd love to see him 2 or 3 hit the Yanks....just to emphasize how awesome he is and how feeble the Yankees bat's are at the moment.

Best pitcher in baseball? Check

Best pitcher in baseball who is having the best postseason of his career? Check

At home? Check

Against a team that is in shambles emotionally and physically? Check

Said team's lineup has terrible lifetime stats against Verlander? Check

This has trap game written all over it. Anything and everything can, and will, go wrong. Believe me. I wouldn't be surprised if JV is killed by a Russian space station that has fallen out of orbit tonight.

There is no way on earth the sports Gods let Detroit off this easy. It's against the laws of nature.

Verlander starts do seem to get interrupted by rain more often than they should. Raining spacecraft wouldn't be much different.

The Yanks will probably win tonight, then drop 4 and 5.

Gardner and Chavez in the starting lineup. 13 and Swisher sit. Nunez plays SS.

Unbelievable. The Tigers are beating the Yankees on and off the field.

Nunez and Garner are tough to figure out.

We just had an earthquake here in Mass. It was as devastating as the last.
 
2012-10-16 07:18:37 PM
Can't stay up late enough to watch the game, but I fully expect Verlander to go all 9 innings on about 130 pitches, 1-2 ER. I guess I'll find out when I wake up. Go Tigers!

/grumbling about waking up early for work

Tiger's bullpen blows this one.

Benoit and Valverde are the two special ed players kept for laughs...

Jeter has tagged better and more. I'd say advantage Yankees there.

As a Tiger fan, I don't like Gardner in the lineup. He can mess up an inning when he gets on.
 
2012-10-16 07:38:12 PM
The Yankees have playing in a full ballpark to look forward to
 
2012-10-16 07:43:56 PM
I can't believe Wells just said Rodriguez might have been looking for a slump buster behind the dugout.
 
2012-10-16 07:46:34 PM
Unless the Yankees throw up a 20 spot on the Tigers and cause their entire bullpen to be out with whiplash from the watching homeruns I think we are cooked.
 
2012-10-16 07:57:11 PM
For the final touch to our brew tonight... a pristine virgin in a gown of white. Evil bringeth here our plea, she's as pure as she can be! White and clean as driven snow, the Evil Empire, here we go!

/butchered the quote, oh well
 
2012-10-16 07:59:53 PM
So up against history 19-3, I still believe. I'd like to forget the 04 Sox but who are the other two without looking it up?

/Though they are almost certainly done.

Gardener drag bunt single, balk to second, steal third, score on a pop out into the stands. It's gonna happen.

You've got a talented gardener, I'm assuming he's here legally.

From what I've heard here, Valverde has probably convinced himself that he is responsible for the morale boost of winning game one, leading to the victory in game 2.

Hmm, I'm starting to think the TBS pitch tracker may be slightly off. Wide zone to lefties 3 games in a row seems unlikely.

I'm bowling across the street from Comerica Park right now, so I'm getting a kick . . . . Go Tigers
 
2012-10-16 08:13:01 PM
If this start wasn't Verlander's, I'd predict that today is the today the Yankee bats break out and put 4 runs on the board. But, I'd say it's also the day the Yankee starting pitches finally breaks and the Tigers score 7.

I predict the Tigers will win this game 5-0.

The local Orioles network is showing a replay game one of the 1997 ALDS. A-Rod just singled off Mike Mussina.

Costas, Uecker, and Morgan calling the game. Tim Mclelland behind the plate.
