At the end of the day, it's only baseball.

"someday you win, someday you lose, and someday it rains."

Being a fan of a specific teams always brings the suck. Being a fan of the game has never let me down.

it was a good season, and fun to watch. if they stay healthy next season, and pick up a couple new players, they could even be better.

congrats on the division championship!

I don't know. I've never played major league baseball and am thinking I couldn't have done it any better. For the $ I'd sure give it one heck of a try, though.

I just find it funny when people are so critical of the players in professional sports. My husband gets so annoyed that he turns the TV off then on, then off, then on.....

He acts like he owns the team and his 82 year old dad is even worse.

They came out today and played good baseball, they stuck to the original plan which was Verlander showing up and throwing into late innings and then Coke coming in for relief. Exactly what Leyland wanted. And damn it JV throws 133 pitches. And yeah I know it was up to JV and he showed up which made it easier for Leyland to call it. But you have to keep in mind he is also working with a pretty beat up team. I have no idea how Delmon Young stepped up the way he did and also V Mart, I mean wow, these guys are hurt! As far as this game goes, there is nothing to bitch about, Leyland has made bad decisions before, but that was before and this is now. Can't wait for Saturday!

The 2nd tier guys got it done tonight. Jackson is a waste of space, bench him and get someone that can see the damn ball, 4 K's WTF?

(I wonder if they know that they have 3 more to win in Texas and not to celebrate too much tonight.)

First off, only 2 more. Second, who do you expect to fill in for AJ?
Not meaning to sound like a dick, just being blunt.

Hitting the ball wins baseball games? Since when? I thought the managers having staring contests from across the field did.

yes my medicine interfered with my mathematics, 2 games to go. as far as a fill in for AJ, anyone that can hit the ball? where is McClendon in this hitting slump?
I hope they can take it to game 7, that would be awesome

while i personally am not a big leyland fan, he is better than the last couple managers he replaced.
i question his weird line up changes, resting 3 or 4 staters in the same game is weird.
i question his 3rd base coach that cant tell when to send or hold runners at 3rd.
i question his choice of pitching and hitting coaches. i think better ones are available.

he is not a horrible manager, he is not the best either. better than what we had though.

if he wins game seven, tiger fans will line up to swallow his nut juice by the thousands!

I still think the 3rd base coach needs to consider who's running for home BEFORE he says go.


I really was pulling for him.

Prime example of the stupidity on this site.
Yes. Bench your lead off hitter. In game 6.
With no one on the team that could a) hit lead off b) play center
Austin is an excellent defender. The only one with speed. Still drawing walks.

But fukc it. Some moron in petosky thinks the Tigers should bench him. Even though the outfield is hurting and thin.
