2014 ALDS: Game 1 Wrap-Up

I’d love to pretend that I can forget last night’s game, and the complete exposure of every weakness this team has. I’d like to act as if I can brush off the concerns that T Smith nailed in his comment last night, as easily I would sweep aside the fall twigs and leaves on my doorstep.

But that’s not going to happen.

Let’s be candid. Last night sucked.

The Tigers played from behind last night all game, Scherzer failed to pitch to the level of an ace, Hunter couldn’t come up with a big hit, and the bullpen got de—-stroyed.

By any interpretation, this was absolutely the worst possible start to a series we could have hoped for.

But it’s just one game.

Remember when we had the best start to a series we could have possibly hoped for? Up 4 runs in the 8th inning with a 1-0 series lead, on the road? I mean, could we have felt any better then?

This is why winning the division was so important. We can stretch the series out. We get at least one game at home.

More coming soon.

    Out-pitched, out-hit, out-fielded, and out-managed. But I guess the base running was a draw.

    The TBS guys’ critiques were spot-on.
