Series tied 2-2! Get your tix, air and game for tonight! Tigers are going down! Verlander not nearly as good on the road as at home. Prince Fielder will attack ground balls gingerly after last night's costly error! I really don't think it's anyone's game tonite. Pressure's on them striped cats! Tigers have got to be in shock after even fleetingly thinking ALCS! Never count your chickens before they hatch!
In all fairness, when your team has clearly outplayed the opposition all night,
you take a 2 run lead into the 9th, and your closer, who is usually money, coming
in to pitch the 9th, you have to feel pretty good about your chances of winning the
game. I don't think it was as much pressure as it was Fielder's brick that got them.
Bet your money on the A's today if you like, but my money rides on the Tigers to
win the game today. And buddy, I will take Justin Verlander to pitch for me even if it
is in my bathroom! Home...road...doesn't matter, and you are nuts to think the A's have
an advantage facing him on the road. The only advantage the A's will have is if his
arm falls off!!
