I was going to leave work early to meet up with a friend there to watch the game. He had to cancel... because he got a ticket instead! cloud.gif

I think he said "you don't want to wake up nobody" - I'm impressed at the way they sleepwalked their way through those wins over Greinke and Kershaw.

Plus, their pitchers got pretty excited after striking out Puig and Uribe in that tight spot on Sunday - the pitcher clapped and hopped all the way back to the dugout. It's ridiculous. I'm sick of all this redneck bullshit. And I haven't seen the Dodgers complain about the other teams' celebrating all year. The only time they got upset was when Ian Kennedy hit both Puig and Greinke around the head, and when Quentin rushed Greinke and broke his collarbone.

The only people who can complain about that are Dodgers' fans because that was an inside the park home run.

This power outage is clearly Joe West's fault.

Let the "city forgot to pay the power bill" jokes commence.

Joe Buck's inability to tell a home run and calling them all fly balls is really annoying, among other things. That was a no doubter.

Kind of like a Punter never being elected in the NFL HOF. Ray Guy was awesome back in the day...by far the best at his position for years, and not in. I guess Edgar Martinez was considered the best DH until Ortiz. Papi's post seasons with all the regular season records should get him close

Napoli trying hard not to laugh as Erin Andrews almost says Justin Bieber instead of Verlander.

At the start of the game, there was a good feeling at the ballpark.The Four Tops sang the National Anthem to perfection. Verlander pitched as the "horse" he is supposed to be. But no hits. All those zeroes on the score board. It just took one stinking run by the Red Sox to win that game. There is no joy in Mudville, tonight. For a team that has spent big bucks on hitters, this was epic disappointment. Golly! I think I hear Steve B singing, "Kitty, Kitty..."

Up in the stands, no one knew why the game was delayed. The music never stopped playing; there were lights everywhere--at least that we could see in the park. During that time, my cell phone would not pick up a signal.

Even though we sat in the upper deck, the view was great.

When Phil Coke came out there was a big "Noooooo". After he made his one out, Leyland came to take him out. At that, there was another "Noooo". Now, the crowd wanted him to stay.

No wonder that Jim Leyland smokes.

There was a stretch there with a commercial break between six consecutive batters.

 

Tazawa finishes off his second batter.

Commercial break.

Uehara gets last out of the 8th.

Commercial break.

Veras gets Pedroia.

Commercial break.

Coke gets Ortiz.

Commercial break.

Albuquerque gets Napoli.

Commercial break.

Uehara starts the 9th.

 

As much as I love the baseball playoffs, this just sucked all the energy out of the end of the game for me. Leyland's managing is insufferable.

^damn we had the same experience (sad deflating 1run loses despite awesome pitching from our ace) cheers.gif

i hate that feeling where you kind of feel the inevitable coming (a deflating loss) but you have to stick around anyway because its only 1 run.

Glad to see Matt Holliday hitting the ball again. The Cards (Cardinals) need him to produce this postseason.

Also, it looks like Sugar Shane Robinson is starting to impose his will on Dodger pitching. That's great to see.

Sounds like you had a good time, regardless of the outcome. This is the first year since they've begun making the playoffs again that I haven't bought playoff tickets for and I miss it. The atmosphere at the playoff games is always absolutely electric... even if the electricity isn't flowing.

FWIW though, regular season or playoffs, I never get service at Comerica. I always chalk it up to crappy AT&T service.

One more note - I was listening to the game on the radio on my way home from the office when they had their electricity issues there at the park and even the radio feed went all static-y for a few minutes while they straightened it out.

Hmmm, sounds like "the end times". biggrin.gif


Now that 12+ hours have passed, I am less depressed than I was last night after the game.
It is still a 7 game series. No need to panic. Or be depressed.
Boston is not hitting all that well, either.
JV's numbers are just incredible. In his last five starts, he has a .257 ERA. (Yet, the Tigers have been 1-4 in those games.)
Our starting pitching rotation will not let us down.
If the series does go to games 6 and 7, we till have "Scherlander". (Heard that one on the radio.)

In 1968, when the Tigers were in a hitting slump, that rascal, Mayo Smith, wrote the names of the batters on cards. He shuffled "the deck" and that was the batting order of the day. And, they won. I don't think Jim should tinker with the order, but something should be done to loosen the team up a bit. He'll figure something out. Charlie Dressen was famous for saying, "Don't worry, boys. I'll think of sumthin'!"
