Verlander and the Tigers bull pen kept the Evil Empire at bay. The series is even. And, we're coming home. Let's go Tigers!

Saw this on the Detroit News Tigers blog...

What an extra 100 million will buy

The way I figure it, the Tigers complete line up today had a payroll of about 40 million counting the DH. And 25 of that was Pudge and Mags, who didn't get much done. The Yankees group starting today was 140 million plus. Steinbrenner, I'm thinking you need to step and pay some real money! This made me feel like 1984 all over again. I skipped a few hours of work to watch it and was dancing with every pitch the last 3 innings. Thank you boys for showing the kind of grit that wins. Geez, I hope Randy's back holds up, because I don't want to hear that they were missing 15 million from their team when we take the lead in this series!

Ah schadenfreude! I want to see the Yankees lose in the first round just to witness the self-laceration of Yankee fans, the Steinbrenner lunacy, the absurd offseason maneuvering. Their lineup is completely absurd as is. A-Rod sixth, Cano ninth?

Are the Yankees the best team in baseball, today? Yes.
Can they be beat? Yes.

Jim Leyland has got to be General Robert E. Lee and outfox the vastly superior forces he and his team face. Rebel warfare.

Go Tigers!

Yesterday's game was one of the most fullfilling in Tiger history.

Pologuy, have a great time watching the Tigers beat the "greatest line-up in history" I'll have to miss it, I'll be on a bus back up to Boston, The land that the play-offs forgot. Go Tigers!

What a game last night!! IT WAS THE BEST THING i HAVE EVER SEEN. We destroyed thise Yankess. I think we can take those Yankees. We had 2 Yankee fans in our section last night and chased them out after the 7th inning. Most people are just New York fans because they spend a lot of money to get the best players. Where are you now Twins fans? Come on out! How many games did you win in your series? NONE! Go Tigers!!

I got tickets to todays game at 4. Should be fun. Watching the game last night, I actually noticed the fans... for the first time ever. It's about time, but where have you been?

Something I've noticed about baseball fans in Detroit and football fans in Michigan Stadium.... at times, we can be the quietest fans in the world. It does not mean we do not care. It's just that we tend to keep emotions on the inside.

Michigan Stadium, the "Big House" with a seating capacity of over 110,000, is known as the quietest stadium in the Big Ten. There are moments when there is an absolute silence in that place. There are times when the few thousand visitors make more noise than the 100,000+ Maize clad fans. (Please know that is being written hours before the clash between Michigan and Michigan State. There will be few silent moments, today.)

Is it a Midwest "reticence" thing? Perhaps, we tend to reserve our loud enthusiasm for special moments only? Such as last night at the Tigers-Yankees game? And WHAT a night that was!

I have to buy a small portable radio so that I can listen to the Tigers game while I'm at the Big House. Both game times start at 4:30 p.m. Damn!

No.. no.. certainly not. I would have quoted you if that were my intent...

This was more of a general stab at all of Detroit... hehe..

I'll certainly agree with some of that. I've been to Pistons games where you can hear whispers from Flip to his assistants. However, I don't think its a Midwest thing. Plenty of loud stadiums.. ever been to a Bears game at Solider Field? Plus, this whole issue with people split over MSU/UM football and a potential series-ending home playoff win against the Yankees by the Tigers. ARE YOU INSANE? This happens once a lifetime.
