    On a side note: Law Enforcement in the Motor City is on High Alert - Snipers have been seen on Rooftops to prevent any further Giant hitters taking "head shots" at Detroit pitchers :lol3

    That line drive was a scary moment. I'm glad that Fister is okay. I fear that one day a pitcher is going to be killed by something like that.

    The way the Giants have played this post-season, it might just take snipers to stop them. :deal



    :zilla

    :hide

    I expect that Detroit will make a good showing tonight.

    Go Giants!! :clap

    Oof. The Tigers have really fallen flat. In my wildest dreams I never would have thought that their bats would go almost completely silent. Yeah, the Giants' pitching has been exemplary, but I was certain that there would be a bustin' out of the whoopin' sticks at some point.
    Could be tomorrow night. :dunno

    The Detroit Tigers have turned into the Pussy Cats with their bats :puke1

    Listening and watching the players after these games they seem not give a shit which is really strange and disappointing :cry

    Well, its never over till its over so Hopefully the High On Lions beat Seattle at Ford Field and the Tigers don't get swept tonight :kurt

    :lol3

    Talk about a choke. Down three games and no evidence of an offense? WTF?

    I mean, I'd be more Comfortable if these losses were because of a good game lost instead of a hobbled effort from the Tigers.

    2006 all over again. Yuk.

    They should just concede it now. Save themselves some embarrassment.

    Bottom of the 10th for the Tigers to pull ONE game out. Do or die time. Tick Tock.

    Update: Giants clinch it in the 10th inning, 4-3 score.

    Tigers just didn't rise to the call this year.

    Congratulations to the Detroit Tigers for a great season. They really are a talented powerhouse of a team that was, IMHO, bitten on the ass by the long layoff between the LCS and the WS.
    That being said, it was just the Giants' year. I had doubts all season long, and at times questioned their heart and desire, but they proved me wrong. Their run through the playoffs has been nothing short of incredible, and I'm of the feeling, as a long-suffering Giants fan, that this championship is sweeter than 2010.

    My family and I are going to SF later this week for the victory parade, too. :deal

    Me thinks once Verlander got pounded and knocked out of the 1st game it took the wind out of the Tigers sails

    Detroit pitching other than Verlander's was good - Giant pitching Much Better

    Princess and the rest of the Tiger hitters didn't show up whereas the Giant hitters consistantly did when it counted

    Look for the Tigers to rid themselves of Jose Valverde, Joaquin Benoit and Delmon Young in the off season

    Detroit had a Good Run this year just not good enough - Congratulations to the 2012 World Series Champion Giants
