Game 2013. Playoffs X: Game Over

ALCS: Boston 4, Detroit 2. Game 6: Boston 5, Detroit 2. Good game. Good series. Good season. No real disgrace in losing your final game to the best team in the American League. 7th inning, bottom half. Detroit up 2-1, somehow. Well, not “somehow.” The lead could have been bigger, maybe, but a big hit […]

ALCS: Boston 3, Detroit 2. Game 5: Red Sox 4, Tigers 3. Not as close as the score would indicate… or was it? It doesn’t take much to lose a game, and in this instance I’m not talking about late-inning drama. For a game that looked like it was over after 3 innings, the Tigers […]

First game of a 3-game series. “My favorite pastime is definitely baseball. We have a star-studded team & it’s going to be fun tonight” Thank you Calvin (or is it Johnson?). I couldn’t have said it better myself. It was a small thing really: take one guy from the front of the lineup, move him […]

Wrong side of 2-1, 7 games left to go. So, my intention was to just post a “short and sweet for the W” and then let the chips fall. It worked pretty well back in the day (meaning 2011 – 2012). Well, I’m glad I put something up last night. There has been (understandably) so […]

It’s just 2-1. We’re playing the best regular season team in baseball, not Minnesota. There’s no home field advantage in MLB playoffs. We have the best rotation in baseball, and the best hitter too. Big game tomorrow. We’ll be alright. More to come.

ALCS: Detroit 1, Boston 1. ALCS Game 2: Boston 6, Detroit 5. Painful. The loss Sunday night is one game I will not review in its entirety. During the regular season, there was at least one (Toronto 8, Detroit 6) and probably a couple other games I forget where a sizable lead vanished and left […]

One down, three to go. That makes it sound a lot easier than it will be. Once the celebrations subsided after last night’s thrilling, nail-biting victory, the questions crept back. Are the Tigers back to their frustrating habit of the all-or-nothing, feast-or-famine offense? It was a classic famine game: a bunch of base runners, most […]

(credit to Detroit News for the image. Note to Detroit News – we’re not making any money off of this. Still, if you want us to take it down, just post here and we will) 3-2, 8 more to go. Look, I’m happy to be here. I am. It’s better than the alternative. But champagne […]

This falls to me, of all people? I’ve lost four in a row. I’ve been no-hit by the Miami Marlins. Lately, I seem to have inherited Justin “The Better I Pitch, The Less My Team Scores” Verlander from Kevin. My insight and wit have been hampered by an adverbial strain and more recently hobbled with […]

Well, here we are facing elimination, which is never a pleasant thing. The series so far has been a bit dispiriting, which is why I am muttering to myself and throwing the F-bomb around to keep myself pumped up while I type this. And what the $%*! are you looking at? This isn’t supposed to […]

1-1, 10 games to go. Relax. Take a deep breath. The Tigers own home field advantage for the rest of the ALDS. Yes, the hitting is a concern. Dare I say a grave one. But offense can be restored as quickly as it was lost, and this offense is simply too good to disappear forever. As KW […]

This new season is off to a great start. For the “bad guys,” 27 outs and 16 of them strikeouts. 2 runs, and you can practically write off one of them. 3 hits, 6 baserunners. This, for the good guys, against an Oakland team that has pretty much demolished everything in its path since they […]
