Game 2012 Playoffs.5: Tigers at A’s

11.10.2012 95 comments

Well, relaxing didn’t seem to help. Sure, Max Scherzer seemed relaxed and efficient, keeping the A’s to 4 base runners and no earned runs through 5 1/3, while striking out 8. Unfortunately the bats were a bit relaxed as well, as the Tigers only managed to score 3 runs despite 10 hits, and although Fielder […]

Relax, don’t worry.  That’s the message Jim Leyland has for the Tigers and Tiger faithful after the A’s shut out Detroit 2-0 on Tuesday night to stay alive in the ALDS. Anibal Sanchez and the Tiger bullpen were up to the task, but the Tigers are still waiting for their offense to be unleashed, a […]

The Tigers swept the home series with the A’s and now have 3 tries to finish the job in Oakland. John Lowe gives 3 reasons why we shouldn’t assume a Tiger series win: The Tigers haven’t really hit the A’s well yet Joaquin Benoit Home field advantage–the A’s just swept 3 must-win games there against Texas […]

1-0, 2 games left to win in the series. Prior to last night, JV was 0-2 with a 9 ERA in 3 previous game 1 playoff starts.  After Coco Crisp lined the 4th pitch of the game into the RF bleachers, on a 1-2 count no less, it looked like more of the same. But […]

It was a long road, and never easy, but the Tigers did it, and the playoffs are here! Let baseball’s second season begin! Because of the peculiarities of this season’s scheduling, even though Detroit is the away team, they get the first two games of the best of five series at home, beginning with Justin […]

Beginning this season, MLB and the players association have approved a one-game wild card round between the 2 teams with the best records in each league who are not division winners. It makes it that much harder for a team who did not win their division to make it to the WS, though we do […]

Last’s night’s game was so incredible and had enough talking points to fill 19 hours of sports-talk time, which is exactly what is happening right now in the Metroplex.  I’d be curious to get everyone’s thoughts. I really don’t want to see the Cards win another one.

So it all comes down to this.  Tonight is either the last game–and the last game post–of the season,  or it’s the catapult into a deciding game 7 with our best postseason pitcher on the mound I like our chances to take this thing if we can make it to game 7, where the Rangers […]

The Rangers have out bullpenned, out run, and out fielded the Tigers through 4 games of this series.  But that’s through 4, and this is a 7 game series.  There’s a reason for that. None of the Tigers losses have been lopsided (tack on runs excluded), and they have had distinct opportunities to win each […]

Today’s playoff trivia question: Who has the MLB record for the highest single-season playoff BA and OBP (same player)?  Answer below. What a difference a day makes. The Tigers got where they are on their hitting as much as anything:  they had the 4th highest team OPS in the AL, behind Boston, Texas, and the […]

Here’s the thing about a walk-off Grand Slam.  It only counts as one win.  One win.  Same as a sacrifice fly, walk, HBP, bloop single, etc.  There’s no momentum in baseball. In less than 9 hours, 42,000+ screaming, rabid, passionate Detroit Tigers fans are going to erupt when the Tigers charge out of the dugout […]

Note:  The Sunday game has been postponed, and will now be played (presumably) Monday at 4:19 EST, because 4:15 is just too early and 4:30 is just too darn late. **Breaking News**  Magglio is out for the rest of the postseason.  He refractured the ankle he broke last season, when or how is unclear (he […]
