Series is singular and plural, so yes, that is correct.

Go Tampa!
Go Oakland... or, well, a game 5 would be cool, actually.  Go whoever!

It's time for another episode of Great Moments is Tiger History

cmsimg.gdn.mydesert.com


This has been a great series. It might end today but it has been very close. Certainly no one has run away with any game.

They look really good, that's for sure. The fact that guys like Juan Uribe and Carl Crawford are contributing while they have Adrian Gonzalez, Yasiel Puig, and Hanley Ramirez looming in their lineup is pretty impressive. They're certainly capable.

That said, weird shiat happens in the postseason. And the winner of PIT/STL will be a tough out.

Gene Tenace. Nice.

Just looked at the lineups. Leyland is running Jhonny Peralta out again in LF, while a banged-up Torii Hunter is back in RF. I get the need to put the best offensive lineup out there with the Tigers struggling at the plate, but I think Detroit is playing with fire with the defense out on the field today.

At least, I certainly hope they are.

Peralta's throw on the sac fly yesterday was fugly. I almost felt bad for him.

Almost...

I know this pain
Why do lock yourself up in these chains?
No one can change your life except for you
Don't ever let anyone step all over you
Just open your heart and your mind
Is it really fair to feel this way inside?
 
2013-10-08 05:10:38 PM
And Jhonny's arm is challenged on the first at bat.
 
2013-10-08 05:14:34 PM
1-0. Let the Fisting begin.
 
2013-10-08 05:14:52 PM
Score early and often...
 
2013-10-08 05:20:47 PM
23 pitches in the first inning for Fister. Bullpen early?
 
2013-10-08 05:22:42 PM
Shut 'em down Straily
 
2013-10-08 05:24:00 PM
If the Tigers lose today I hope they at least start another scuffle before it's all over.

/NO F*CK YOU B*TCH!

I'm not watching live so see you all later.

mediablitz: 23 pitches in the first inning for Fister. Bullpen early?


Maybe put in Sherzer in the third inning? Not sure if it would matter it is not the pitching that is killing them. With a better defense behind Fister Coco wold have been stranded at third.
 
2013-10-08 05:26:16 PM
It's a shame that it didn't line up so that the starting pitchers weren't Fister and Colon.
 
2013-10-08 05:29:06 PM

floor: Maybe put in Sherzer in the third inning?


I was wondering why Leyland didn't opt to start Scherzer on three days rest here. Leyland obviously isn't bothered by high pitch counts for starters in the postseason, but maybe he's more hesitant than Mattingly to run out his 1-2 starters as often as possible.

My girl says you're gross, and so am I for laughing so hard.
 
2013-10-08 05:34:34 PM
So I'm stuck looking at the shiatty gamecast here, how the hell did Seth Smith get to third there?
 
2013-10-08 05:35:02 PM
Fister looks uneasy.  Oakland doesn't have the talented line-up like Detroit, however I wouldn't make mistakes against them.
Rooting for Oakland.

Fister has good numbers vs the A's and there is no guarantee that Sherzer could perform better on three days rest. If Detroit wins tonight they want Max in game 5. Fister is a damn good pitcher IF he has the fielding to back him up. The Tigers do not in this series. He'll give up hits but balls will be hit into double plays.
 
2013-10-08 05:42:18 PM
50 pitches through 2 for Fister. Get ready, Detroit bullpen.
 
2013-10-08 05:42:30 PM
An even 50 pitches after two innings...
 
2013-10-08 05:45:26 PM
Maybe Fister just needed 50 pitches to warm up.  He's a great pitcher and could see him go to the 6th inning.  The only problem is that Coco did get a good whack at his last pitch.
 
2013-10-08 05:48:01 PM
Straily comes back 3 pitch K. Nice.
 
2013-10-08 05:49:29 PM
Turn two...
 
2013-10-08 05:51:29 PM
Donaldson's due to do something big.
 
2013-10-08 05:53:54 PM
Fielder moves really well for someone that farking HUGE.
 
2013-10-08 05:53:57 PM
That was a nice looking double play

JayCab: Fielder moves really well for someone that farking HUGE.


It is hard to look at Fielder an use the words "Professional Athlete". Then again he makes plays like that.

That inning is how Fister's day should look. Base hit, double play and a K.

He and Bartolo Colon should pursue some sort of buddy-comedy project in the offseason. "Two Sursprisingly Athletic Fat Guys".
 
2013-10-08 06:05:02 PM
3 innings an no walks. That is pretty impressive for Straily.

Fat man and the Fat man. Coming to CBS.

My favorite description of Colon is that he looks like a giant  teapot.

Fister is scrappin.

mediablitz: Fister is scrappin.


Indeed. We need to put those hits together.
 
2013-10-08 06:12:49 PM
Well good season y'all
 
2013-10-08 06:18:10 PM
4K and no BB. Straily is locked in. He could go 9.
 
2013-10-08 06:21:18 PM
C'mon Donaldson.
