The Bestest: Wait, Tuesday's game is a day game? I thought Fox had more pull than that.


I guess they wanted the potential elimination game (NLCS Game 4) in prime time.  Either that or there was a really important episode of "American Idol" scheduled.

Isn't it in LA?


Red Sox-Tigers is at 4 ET, Cardinals-Dodgers is at 8 ET/5 PT, so effectively they're almost both day games.

Tigers/Sox is at 4:00

Dodgers/Cardinals is at 8:07

Foaming: Polish Hussar: The Bestest: Olympic Trolling Judge: Polish Hussar: I believe Scherzer just exceeded Sanchez's strike out total from last night

Looks like it.  Sanchez had 12, right?  MLB.com is showing Scherzer with 13.

Does Verlander get angry and get 15 on Tuesday?

I sure hope so.  As well as exceeding the no-hit and shutout innings of Sanchez and Scherzer

But can he get FIVE strikeouts in one inning?


I was kind of excited about that, since we'd just been talking about how it was possible on Thursday.

They set the schedules before the matchups were set, so the LA having a home game has nothing to do with it.

You don't want a six or seven start in Detroit and an eleven start in LA.

Sherzer is flirting with playoff strikeout history with 13 down and 19 possible.
American League records:
15 -- Roger Clemens, New York at Seattle, Oct. 14, 2000.
15 -- Mike Mussina, Baltimore at Cleveland, Oct. 11, 1997.
14 -- Joe Coleman, Detroit vs. Oakland, Oct. 10, 1972.

It's fall. Fox's in X-Factor season right now.

as a diehard Tigers fan, I'm glad the Red Sox offense is so pathetic. From what I'm seeing, I dont understand how they had the best record in the AL. Eat'em up, Tigers, eat 'em up!

The Bestest: Wait, Tuesday's game is a day game? I thought Fox had more pull than that.


Yup. I dont think Detroit has played a night home game yet, nor a weekend and their away games have been exactly that.

It sucks for those of us that live a couple hours away and would like to go to a playoff game.

It also sucks for those of us that are Tigers fans living on the West Coast, and having to try to discreetly stream the game on work computers.

Boston winning their series guaranteed no weekend games in Detroit. It really, really sucks for those of us who live far away and actually have playoff tickets.

This occurred to me the other day.  We wont get a weekend home game this series.  And, if we move on, we wont get one in the World Series either.  We seem to like clinching things on the road anyways, I guess...

I don't have tickets, but yeah, I couldn't find a DD for 1.5 hour drive each way anyways.

After the Pats game, and now this, hell of a day for Boston sports.

Well.
 
2013-10-13 11:23:49 PM  
Torii might be concussed.

That's unfortunate. When do you think think the "Shoulda stayed with Scherzer until he lost it" will start up?

Dusty Baker's ghost is still haunting MLB and God damn that so much. It costed the Giants the world series when Baker took the winning pitcher out of game 6 in the 7th inning in 2002. They should immediately fire whoever took out Sherzer. Fire that a-hole now. He deprived Sherzer of his record and just lost the game and maybe the series. Fire the ass that took out Sherzer. I am disgusted.

Nice to see the Sox bullpen right there with Torii.

The series?  Even if Boston wins, they've lost home-field advantage.  Detroit gets to play the next three in the roach-infested confines of Comerica.
