Yanks in 3.

No, but, seriously, it's important for the Yankees to take these first two games before seeing Verlander. `

There are not enough "fucks" in the world to express my frustration at last night's game.

Bad calls have taken away a run from the Yankees and given one to the Tigers. But, no, Bud, there's no "appetite" for instant replay in baseball.

I know Ibanez has been clutch but why go lefty vs. lefty against Detroit's best reliever?

If the Yanks sent A-Rod up, Coke would've been replaced by Benoit. Ibanez is trash against lefties, but it's not like Swisher or A-Rod have done anything worth writing home about in the last week.

Curious to see if the Yankees realize they can score runs in the not ninth inning(s) tonight. Doubtful.

Lefties hit Scherzer to a .360 wOBA this season. As much as I love A-Rod, the move is defensible.

I can't believe I'm in the position of explaining to someone why Nick Swisher fits the NYY offensive model. Is this the real life?

Also, congrats Tigers.

So who do you Tigers' fans want to see? StL or SFG?

Media is shit. All I hear is drama about the Yankees. Sportscenter headlines are "ALCS: Yankees down 3-0." The Tigers are getting no press in this series. Nobody comments on how well the Tigers are playing, all I hear about is ARod and Granderson not starting games. The Tigers starting pitcher rotation has been phenomenal this post season, and I only hear about it on local radio. A combined ERA under 1 for the four pitchers. Incredible.

Anyways, loving this game right now.

Question: Is the local radio relatively supportive of the team? I only ask because local radio here is essentially not. Even when the Yankees were trucking people in May/June, the focus was on how they hit "too many homers" and not on the fact that they were steamrolling teams.
