World Series Action

You can't win at baseball by scoring only 3 runs in two games.

Saturday's game is a must win for my Tigers!

Re: World Series Action

Ya gotta think at some point the Tigers will at
least show up and make an attempt at winning
a game. Being swept in the World Series would
be downright ugly and embarrassing.

Re: World Series Action

All of my Tigers best hitters, including the best hitter in the world, are batting .200. Can't win like that.

Our three best and highest paid players haven't shown up and played well: Verlander, Cabrera, and Fielder.

And SF has played very well. Gotta give them that.

It's never over 'til it's over. But it looks pretty bad.

Re: World Series Action

Same as 2 years ago... I'm happy SF won but I would've preferred DET & TEX had won. :(

Re: World Series Action

Six runs in four games... pathetic.

The last pitch of the series summed it up. You don't take a 2-2 pitch that close. You protect the plate. Foul everything off if you have to, but make contact!

Prince Fielder is the goat of the series. Swung at everything... hit nothing. And we're stuck with him for 8 more years. Just kill me now.

Well, I was wrong about the former, and correct about the latter.
After last year's staggeringly mediocre season, I had serious doubts
about the Giant's offense this year. But damn. Their pitching was brutal
and their bats were on fire during the series.
Gotta suck to be a Tiger's fan, or Joe Buck!

Re: World Series Action

This post on April 16 makes me puke! :kotz:
How absolutely pathetic was the Giants' offense last year?
Fooking horrible.
I saw nothing that indicated any sort of change from the 2011 season.
2010 Champs to 2011 Chumps; it wasn't like they just missed making it
back to the WS last year. Then, they not only win the WS this year, they
CRUSH the Tigers.
I hear there's PED's in the water at the Giants training facility...:nuts:

Maybe the Tigers were using PSDs (performance suppressing drugs)? :hmmm:

Re: World Series Action

Maybe their dealer was Lincecum...?
He's been known to, uh, be an "inhaler".

Re: World Series Action

Why is Verlander such a choker in the World Series? He's 0-3.

You forgot that Buster Posey was hurt early last season. His bat and defense made up for a lot this year. Probably the NL MVP.

Re: World Series Action

True.
But Mr.P.E.D. got suspended before the playoff run
and the Giants still got it done. So, I'm not buying the
"single player savior" theory.:laugh:
An interesting study in how the sum is greater than
the parts, as opposed to a team that had a couple of
superstars who, when they fail to show up, it sinks
the team.(those guys from New Yawk):laugh:

Re: World Series Action

RA Dickey becomes the first knuckleballer to win the Cy Young Award! And at age 38.

Great story, great season, great ending.

Now watch the Mets trade him before srping training.

No, that's the Marlins. The Mets will sign him to a 6 year 80 million dollar contract and then he'll get injured and they'll get one good year out of him.

You forget, it's the Mets. They'll sign him to 6 years regardless.
