That was against the Angels, not the Tigers IIRC. Went all 7 games and the Sox drubbed them like 8 or 9 to 1 to convincingly win a tough series. Then the disaster in NY happened........

However, having great respect for Gary Carter*, I was happy to see him get a title, even through the pain of that whole debacle for Sox fans. And nope, I do not blame one guy....they are long games and one play does not make or break it for you. You can always point to several other if's; if you want to be honest about it. He was playing when many folks would have been on the bench.....in street clothes.

Tonight's game was another good one. Detroit's pitching is very good, glad to see they have figured out how to come to terms with it without hoping for a miracle hit.

* and another one of my favorite Expo's, Andre Dawson who we were fortunate to get to watch for a bit ourselves....he was still fast even at the end. Man that stick had whip in his hands. Did not play for the Mets though in '86. Was there in Montreal to the bitter end.

Good game last night = watched it to the Bitter end

The Closer for Boston is Great

Fielder has and continues to be a Failure at the plate during the playoffs this and last year for Detroit

Me thinks Tigers with Scherzer on the mound have a Very Good chance to take game 6 tomorrow

I am well aware of that, thank you.

I'm not a big Red Sox fan.

Doh....should have looked at your locale. I think I would have rather lost that series than the one after it. That was painful...being so close.

+1; He was a Great Manager for Detroit.

3,000,000 plus fans supported their Tigers again this past season = Will be Very Interesting to see who Dombrowski picks next.

New Manager

http://http://espn.go.com/mlb/story/...us-new-manager

Like Matheny with the Cardinals before being hired - managerial experience = NONE. Should be interesting and Hopeful of similar results for the Tigers.

New Tiger manager needs to make sure that all the players on the team are in shape. Those guys should not be more fat than the average guy and, for that money, should be in excellent shape. All that fat really effects Fielders play I think as well as several others. A few just have to go like Leyland.... Those are Fielder for sure and most of the relief pitchers for sure.They are a sad lot.
