  • Detroit Tigers vs. NY Yankees 2012 ALCS

    I'm hoping the Yankees are spent from the war they just had with the O's. Neither Sabathia or Verlander are likely to start twice now. Its going to be a good series.

    I think the Yankees will win. I'm hoping the Tigers beat them, but I don't see it happening.

      I'll go out on a limb, and predict the Tigers in 7. Their pitching is tough, and the Yankee lineup is in a collective slump. Plus the Tigers got a day off, the Yanks won't.
      They call me Mr. Baseball. Not because of my love for the game; because of all the stitches in my head.

        tough to predict. the tigers had a terrible RS but now they seem to have picked it up. they do certainly have the talent at the top.

        that blown save in game 4 against the As can be costly now since it probably costs them a verlander start.

          Yanks need to hit better than they did against the O's but they are clearly the better team.

            The Tigers bullpen is the key to this series. If Benoit and Valverde appear together in 3 games or less, the Tigers have a fighting chance. If they're allowed to pitch in 4 or more games, there goes the season.

            Phil Coke should be good for one appearance per game vs. Curtis Granderson. NEVER should he be allowed to face Robinson Cano, or any right handed hitter under any circumstances.

            So Octavio Dotel and Al Albequerque...get those rubber arms ready.

              I hope they go to 6 or 7 games. I will be in NYC next weekend and I will love to catch a game. Hopefully the Yanks would suffer a deflating game like Game 4 was in the ALDS so tickets can be had cheap from all the fairweather fans lining up on the bridge.......

                The fact the Yankees have 0 days off between series hurts them. Sabathia and Kuroda will both have to pitch a game on 3 days rest to get 2 starts.

                  I think I'll go with the
                  Kate Upton factor
                  after today (10/13/12) the hat that she is shown wearing first will WIN

                    The Yankees likely have revenge from the 2011 ALDS on their minds. And those bats aren't likely to be dormant for much longer. Much as I hate to say it, Yankees in 6.

                      I have hope for the Tigers, but not much. Dear Tigers, start hitting now.

                          Jeter fractured his ankle in the 12th tonight. That will put a big dent in the Yankees chances for the ALCS. The team will have to lift without him but it may inspire them?

                            So...Valverde and Benoit DID pitch in the first game (I'm still a little queasy hours after the fact) and the Tigers did not lose. Are the Baseball Gods (fickle and cruel, yes, but with a great sense of humor) finally bestowing some providence on the Tigers? If so, I'd say it's about time. Perhaps they feel indebted for what went down in 2006.

                            Jose Valverde's last dance off the mound was a slow shuffle. It undoubtedly will be his last in a Tiger uniform. If it is not, then Jim Leyland will be deserving of all the scorn that has been heaped on him this season.

                            IF the Tigers actually get to the World Series of the United States and Canada, Valverde has to be left off the roster.

                              Papa Smyly did a fine job last night. Maybe relief is his calling.

                              But if A-Rod can be benched, so can Valverde. His last 2 games have been monumentally terrible. They aren't isolated incidents either. Many times this season he'd get into BIG trouble in the 9th. He'd either get out by the skin on his teeth or blow it.

                              Dotel, Albuquerque, Smyly can all close when needed.

                              I'm going to the game Wednesday. I hope the Tiger fans show a shred of decency for Valverde and just remain silent when he comes out during the pre-game ceremonies. Booing would be inhumane
