NeoCortex42: 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.


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 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.

Actually just the next 2, then back to Boston for game 5.

buckeyebrain: Kevin72: 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.

Nope, Veras is coming on in the 8th.

Pressure? No pressure? The pressure is on for him to get a no-hitter. S-s-s-s-shhhhhh! Dont tell him. Keep it secret. Yesterday was practice for today's no-hitter.

RminusQ: The Bestest: Hm.. it's way early, and Tigers fans will probably kill me for even bringing this up, but has any team ever swept two consecutive ALCSs?

According to Wikipedia, the Orioles swept the first three (1969-1971, each was a best-of-5)


OMG 1971 Orioles. 4 count them four 20-game winners.

Except for Miguel Cabrera's homerun.

Although you are correct about Boston being no-hitted again.

fatalvenom: Kevin72: BiffDangler: How many people actually give a shiat about baseball?  I did when I was a kid, but basically I don't know anyone who follows it anymore.

Lemme tell ya about growing up in Detroit in the early 1960s. There was no such thing as football soccer basketball. There was only baseball and the Detroit Tigers. I never heard about football, not a word of it until I was nine and a new kid on the block brought his football from wherever he moved from and taught us the rules. The only force more powerful than Tigermania was Beatlemania when it was more important to collect Beatles cards than baseball cards. But that was February March April of 1964. When baseball came back in season, so did baseball cards.

Yes that's the voice of the kid speaking. Yes as an adult I don't care about baseball unless the home team is in the world series. This time it is for the second year in a row.

But I thought Detroit is Hockeytown?


It might be hockeytown now. I was talking about the 1960s up to the Tigers winning it all in 1968. I went to junior high school and high school with Gordy Howe's sons, though even that didnt make hockey exciting.. That was after we moved to the suburbs. I left Detroit in 1983 for a national league city (SF Giants) so I never had to drop the Tigers, except for last year. My problem here in SF is that I actually LIKE the Dodgers.

Once again, the Tigers will peak too early and cream Boston like Boston cream pie. Will the Tigers learn from 2012? Will they remain hungry as a Tiger for the win and work out like they mean to beat the Cardinals? Will they get the spirit of 1968 where they came back from game 1 where Bob Gibson struck out 17 Tigers and won 1968? Or will they throw it away like 2006? 2013 is an epic 2 out of 3 faceoff of 1968-2006-2013, a modern rivalry matching the older Yankee-Giants and Yankee-Dodger classics of the 40s 50s early 60s.

I don't care about baseball.  You wanna know how much I don't care about baseball?  I just clicked on a baseball playoff thread so I could tell a bunch of baseball fans that I don't care about their game.

So, uh, please note this for later reference baseball fans.
