If the Tigers and Wolverines win today it will be more enjoyable than an orgasm.

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.

OK, maybe it is a Michigan thing.

I'm not split over the football/baseball series time conflict. As a season ticket holder at Michigan Stadium, I can't afford to not use the tickets. Dan Dickerson and Jim Price will keep me abreast at the football game. I'd rather listen to them than to the babbling commentators on ESPN and Fox. I miss Mario and Rod.

Yesterday was a dream come true. We sure did rock the evil empire. The changes have alreadys tarted as I have heard Torre is out. It will be tought but I think we can take Oakland. It should be a good series.

October 10th

Tonight, the Tigers meet the A's to determine who will represent the AL in the World Series. In 1972, an aging Tigers team, led by its hard drinking and scrappy manager, Billy Martin, lost to the A's of Vida Blue and Catfish Hunter fame. This time, the outcome will be different.

It was on this day, in 1968, when the Tigers won the World Series in a storybook comeback against St Louis. Roly-poly Mickey Lolich pitched the Tigers to a 4-1 victory over the St Louis legendary pitcher, Bob Gibson.

It would be fitting to see the Tigers meet the Cardinals again in 2006! It would be special to see Leyland manage against his mentor, La Russa.

The A's do not have the "sex appeal" of the Yankees, but they have a pitching staff that deserves great respect. This should be a very good series. I wish I could believe all the predictions by the pundits that the Tigers will win this series easily.

Let's go Tigers!

It should be a great series between the A's and Tigers. I would guess very few people expected these teams to be in the ALCS. neither team has big stars really but they have done it with great pitching and clutch hitting. It will be a fun series to watch. i hope everyone on the Twins is watching it at home. Go Tigers!

A belated "thank you" to the Detroit Tigers from this member of Red Sox Nation. Good luck the rest of the way.

I would be thrilled if we beat the A's but beating the Yankees was enough for me!!!!

5-1 in Game 1. We wer elucky to get Zito out of the game so fast. Oakland had a ton of baserunners last night and did not capitalize. I am sure that will change soon. We also got a few runs due to bad fielding. It will be a long and hard fought series. I predict 6 or 7 games.

Wow, they really shut Zito down! One homer seems to have unsettled him.Looks like the Tigers might be children of destiny.

EL Tigre!

Tigers/Mets?

I know lots of people around here would like to see a rematch of the 68 series-Cards vs Tigers, but I wouldn't mind seeing us play the Mets. I still am satisfied that Arod and Jeter are watching from home!!

yep, zito threw up all over the field. the a's definitely had opportunities, but no clutch hits. it could be a long series, but the a's must pick one up tonight.
