    Thursday Playoff Thread

    We start off with the Yanks and Tigers making up yesterday's game. Nothing doing in the 1st for the Tiggers even though Casey reached on a error by Jeter. I wonder how many rows he threw it back since it would have to be an egregious error for A: Casey to be safe and B: The Yankees official scorer actually giving Jeter an error. Doesn't matter since DET is doomed anyway. Yanks have 1st and 2nd with 1 out and Sheff at the dish.

    Verlander just got a K on his first offspeed pitch of the day.

    Fastball is live, but looks flat.

    Go Tigers.

    Won't matter. They are just teasing us.

    I have to say that this is a more likeable group of playoff teams than I can remember in recent years. A lot of these people on this board hate the Cardinals (and really they're not as hateable as usual right now given their regular-season stumbling) and a lot of people hate the New York teams. But nevertheless I would find it hard to get really worked up against too many of these teams. The Twins, the A's, the Tigers, the Padres...I don't even hate the Dodgers as much as I usually do.

    I'm a wreck for any game involving the Yankees, but apart from that, all this likeability lets me really enjoy these baseball games as great baseball games. It's fun.

    Yanks are threatening with two on and none out. Cano at the plate.

    Verlander will not last long at this rate.

    Verlander pitches out of it. Tigers still lead 1-0.

    His fastball has been flat for a month. I think he hit the rookie "wall"

    I doubt 10 soft tosses last night affected his pitching today.

    Five LOB for the Bombers through two. I figure this game goes one of two ways, either the Yankees put a hurt on Verlander in the next few innings or the kid starts finds his groove and puts the Yankees offense on its heels.

    Is it me, but if the Yankees make the WS and win it, wouldn't it be ironic that if Bobby Abreu was WS MVP

    Abreu hit a single off the top of the wall. Magglio played it perfectly and it was RIPPED.

    Verlander in trouble again.
