Having better players makes "the right time" or "the big hit" happen a lot more often. PLUS PLUS

Verlander not at his best, still dominating.
"Reality tells us there are no guarantees. Except that some day Jon Lester will be on that list of 100-game winners." - Peter Gammons
Verlander is cruising now. 5 straight Ks and 6 out of the last 7 batters he has struck out.
133 pitches for Verlander. Seems a bit high but it's the playoffs I suppose.
edit: Okay, maybe not. Box score says 121. I could swear the guy on TV said 132 before his final pitch.
The MLB At Bat app has him listed as 121 pitches. I would think he is done for the night. 11 Ks in 7 innings.
Congrats to the Tigers for winning game one over the A's but after hearing about how some of the Tiger fans treated some Reds fans during that series at GABP (including a friend of mine who was treated extremely bad during the Sunday night game), I'm not sure how I feel about them advancing too far in the post season. I'm loving how the A's messed everyone up by winning the AL West so I'd love to see them advance to the next series. And Jonny Gomes is there too!
Big day tomorrow....O's vs Stankees right before the Reds and Giants!!!

Oakland gets on the board first. Yeonis Cespedes drives in a run here in the 3rd.
Tied up at 1 in Detroit, top of the fifth.
There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.
Oakland takes a 2-1 lead with 1 out in the 7th inning.
