What a farking waste of a great Sherzer effort.
 
2013-10-13 11:46:55 PM  
I guess it doesn't matter, even if he's out the run still scores.

The Sox are fortunate to win this one.  Lucky, almost.  Momentum changer?  I dunno, still early in the series.  But pulling Scherzer may haunt Leyland the rest of the series.

Geez.  That's quite a day for Boston sports fans.

Kevin72: NikkiPoooo: Kevin72: 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.

Let's not a have a stroke, kay?

I will have a stroke about this. The Giants were sailing to win the 2002 series and the pitcher in his own words said he could have easily held out but Dusty Baker the most hated man in 2002 San Francisco took him out and the "relievers" lost imminently winnable game 6. There was no reason to take out Sherzer when he was doing so well and worse deprive him of tying the ALDS record which was imminently available. Now it's a humiliating loss. But I'm more bitter at Sherzer being denied his chance at history because "7 innings only precious snowflake". Fire the bum manager TONIGHT.


It's an easy decision in retrospect, not so obvious as it happens. It can just as easily go the other way. Just look at Pedro, 2003.

queezyweezel: So far this post season has not disappointed...tough games.


4/4 have been 1-run games if I'm not mistaken...
 
2013-10-13 11:49:42 PM  
Papi doesn't hit that homer, Detroit probably sweeps the series. Now I'd say there's a good chance Boston wins the next three games.
 
2013-10-13 11:50:37 PM  
Okay, positives to take from the Tigers tonight.

Avila is starting to hit.  He looked awesome at the plate tonight.  2 for 3 with a walk and a HR.  Can't biatch about that.

Jackson is looking better at the plate.  Not good, mind you, but at least he's not striking out 3 times per game.

Our starting pitching is unreal.  The only one I'm nervous about is Fister, but having him start at home I can deal with.
 
2013-10-13 11:51:02 PM  
Well, I hope the Cards bring in the game tomorrow.  Wain-o going and all, I hope it happens.  See you folks tomorrow.
 
2013-10-13 11:53:32 PM  
I hope to god Benoit doesn't have a Valverde style mental meltdown over this.

I don't know Pedro 2003. I know Sherzer 2013 hot hot hot with 13 strikeouts in 7 innings. I am not bitter at losing the game, that happens. I am bitter at Sherzer being denied his chance at history. The pussification that 7 innings better take him out represents. Have we forgotten that a man at that level of professionalism becomes more competitive?

The way I see it is Scherzer just doesn't play into the 8th, ever. He doesn't get no hitters because he can't play that long. His staff knows him. Even if he's looking solid, and feeling good, in the post-season you just don't risk a completely unknown situation.

Not only do you run the chance of him just falling completely apart and blowing it anyway, but now he's pitched 9 innings of playoff ball, and he's totally not ready to play again if it goes back to Boston. If it was anyone but him I might feel differently about it, but the combination of the unknown and the fact that he is the most needed guy on the pitching staff have me agreeing with the decision, even though it didn't pan out.

The only history that matters in October is who wins and who loses. Anything else is just a line for the announcers to trot out between plays.

Fark you Fark Sox-Haters.

Sorry your Hipster-Douchebag shiat doesn't work.

Go Sox!

jaylectricity: Did Salty ever touch first base?


With no outs, it doesn't even matter.  Once the run crosses the plate the game is over.

broomballwilson: 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!


Do you understand now?

A 34 year old Hunter would have robbed Papi of that home run.

My heart just about stopped when he went ass over teakettle and didn't get right back up. After just one season he's become my Tiger already.

When I saw the replay, I thought the same thing.  Looked like the ball hit the glove.

It seems aside from getting the wind knocked out of him and an abrasion on his melon, Torii's fine.

picodenico: I wonder how many people were at the Pats and Sox game today, and left both early....


 The four guys sitting in front of me at the Sox game did. what a bunch of d-bags, too. One  of them started arguing with me when I told him he was wrong about some Sox stat he was screaming about. He got in my face saying he had season tickets and went to every game this year and wanted to know how many I had gone to. A lot less than him so I knew nothing. Drunk logic, I guess. Anyhow other fans in the area told him to shut up, he insulted some guy's wife, flipped everyone off and yelled he was going to a bar to be with real fans. Shortly after, one of his buddies gets up to scream something at a tigers fan, his seat folded up, and he missed it when he tried to sit back down landing hard and spilling his beer. Everyone laughed and he flipped us off and they all left. An inning later the Sox rallied.

It all depends on the angle the photo was taken from:
