Adult Swim asked the same question! [slashdot.org]

Thanks for the link - I'll have to check those out this weekend. Got softball tonight, and my wife is taping Game 2 of a series of great personal importance to me. ;)


I'm very upset that MLB cancelled the game last night, informed the Yankees, and didn't bother to inform the Tigers, who, thinking there was going to be a 10PM EST start, had Justin Verlander warmup.

I hope that pisses off the Tigers as much as it did me, and they blow out the Yankees today at 1 PM EST... I hope Verlander is motivated and starts blowing 101 mph fastballs past hitters. Then tomorrow: Kenny Rogers, followed by...

ZOOM! [yahoo.com]
GO TIGERS!!

I don't follow sports, but I do dislike the Yankees. And I realize it wouldn't be good for your team. But I'd rather this fellow be motivated to start blowing 101 mph fastballs at the hitters.

I went to the May 30th Yankees / Tigers game in Detroit. The Tigers started Roman Colon (I wanted them to start Grilli) and Colon gave the Yankees a 6-0 lead. Ivan Rodriguez, in the birth of Nate Robertson's "Gum Time" hit a solo HR to start the Tigers comeback.

Once the Tigers tied it, Scott Erickson threw at Pudge. The Tigers responded by having Fernando Rodney throw a 96 mph fastball at A-Rod.

Then later in that same inning, they tagged A-Rod out at the plate trying to score on a wild pitch.

A-Rod's lucky that Erickson didn't pull that crap with Zumaya still on the mound. Zumaya struck out Jeter, A-Rod, Giambi, and Posada.

But then Todd Jones and Chris Spurling (who got demoted to AAA and hasn't been back) coughed up 5 runs to the Yankees in the top of the 12th...

And there was much rejoicing...

Speaking of rejoicing - I'm glad your A's won 2 in that dump known as the metrodome.

/Hates the Twins almost as much as I hate the Yankees.
/1987.. sigh...

I'd be happier if they had one an elimination game at some point during this century;-)

I'll be flying back to Oregon tomorrow during the game, so I'll find out when I land whether or not my A's will be facing your Tigers.

Go Yankees!@ (1)

Not that I care, but team X (that I have no involvement, nor connection to) is better than team Y (that i have no involvement, nor connection to).

Ahhhh, having fun with you Hu-mons!

Tigers 4, Yankees 3. Series tied at 1.

Yay Team!

Oh no... (1)

RevMike (632002) | more than 7 years ago | (#16329117)

Kenny Rogers in a big spot...

... against Randy Johnson.

I can see it now. Welcome back form commercial, America. Here in Detroit it is the middle of the third inning and the game is all tied up at fourteen...

What surprises me the most this morning is browsing the NY Media (and ESPN writers) whining about "A-Wol" not getting a hit against Verlander or Zumaya.

Newsflash for those idiots: Verlander was 16-7 with an ERA below 4 for a reason... and let's face it - not many people are going to have a chance when Zoom paints the outside corner with a 101mph fastball with movement, let alone a 103 mph heater.

But that's the attitude that I hate about ESPN - if the Yankers lose, it's because they choked, not because the other team played better. Yesterday, the Tigers were the better team... They got the clutch hits, and the bullpen slammed the door. I mean, did they not see how the Tigers never quit in Game 1? The plated the tying run 3 times and just didn't get that clutch hit...

I guess I'm sick of the attitude that the Tigers don't belong in the playoffs... bottom line: Yankees won 97 games in the regular season in a much weaker division - the Tigers won 95 games, and played the bloodbath that is the AL Central. Tigers, Twins, White Sox, and the Indians and Royals were spoilers quite a bit after the all-star break. The AL East saw Toronto dial it up, but Baltimore and Boston fell completely apart - and for all the smack the Yankee fans on Fark talk about the Tigers beating on the Royals to pad their record, the SAME THING can be said about the Yankers padding their record against the Devil Rays...

Yesterday Verlander showed why it's a crime if he's not named Rookie of the Year, and when Zoom gets promoted to closer, I'd wager he breaks Gagne's streak of consecutive saves - especially if he's throwing 103.

Nobody around me understands why ... (1)

I have something like 30 Weird Al songs on my phone ... its a lot better listening to him than to the boring morning crews on our local rock stations on the drive to work.

I still remember my first encounter with Weird Al - the "Fat" video.
