    Tigers up 1 to 0. They remain undefeated in the postseason when I'm in attendance.

    Guess the Tigers better send you tix to every game they play then to ensure a WS championship!!

    That's exactly the point I was getting at. But they seem to have managed to win today without my beneficent presence. Tigers up 2 to 0 on the greatest out of Don Kelly's life.

    How do you propose to remove the Yankee scourge?

    The Tigers have become adept at beating the Yankees in the postseason.

    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!!

    OK I was the only one who projected the Giants would upset the Reds.
    Now all I need it the Tigers & Yankees to take care of business tonight, and the Nats
    need to win today and tomorrow.

    Piece of cake...right??

    Well, the Nats take care of business today and force a game 5 tomorrow on a walk off
    HR by Jayson Werth on the 14th pitch of the AB...reminiscent of the Jay Bruce AB in the
    SF-Cin game earlier (except Bruce popped out to left).

    All 4 series go 5 games. Pretty good stuff!!
