Do or Die Time, Let's Bring Out the Mustache



(This rant was originally posted by me on ohiocardplayers.com)

OK, enough is enough, a Cubs fan shouldn't be allowed to post on a baseball topic about how in love he is with the tigers. Just stop, you aren't a tigers fan, I don't care if you want to see the Yankees lose, just stop acting like you live and die by tigers baseball.

1. Apparently there is no such thing as karma because a dickhead like Rogers shouldn't be pitching that great...and he was phenomenal last night.

2. Tiger fans with signs that say "BELIEVE" must not know that they were the best team in baseball up until the last 3 weeks of the season. I always suspected this but now I can officially say that "all Tigers fans are either white trash or ignorant."

3. Lost in the shuffle from last night was that Randy Johnson, I thought, pitched great. In the second inning, the tigers scored 3 runs on 4 bloop/seeing-eye hits and a TERRIBLE missed call at third base that would've ended the inning at 1-0. Nevertheless. You could tell Unit ran out of gas in the 6th though. Truly some guts though.

4. If the Yankees can somehow win today, and I think they can as Bonderman looks like a guy who will be overwhelmed and the Yankees have good numbers against him in the past, they will win game 5. Leyland starting a crappy Nate Robertson in game 1 and game 5 will hopefully be the story on Monday morning.

5. If the season ends tonight, which I will not be surprised as it appears that the Yankees have quit, at least to me, it's time to cut ties with Alex. It's just not worth it anymore. Dig up the corpse of Scott "Big Pimpin'" Brosius, I don't care. But A-Rod has to go.

6. Don't try to deny it either, the Tigers are catching a LOT of breaks in this series. Which I understand you need to win, but the Yankees haven't caught a break in the playoffs since the ALDS in 2001...getting kind of old.

It's Travis Prentice's world, we just live here.
