    I'm sorry, does anyone outside of Detroit or The Bronx even give a flying fuck?

    Fuck both teams. Hope a plane crashes into Yankee Stadium. :cheer:

    [h=1]The Storylines

    • The Yankees took the season series 6-4 while outscoring the Tigers 58-48.
    • The Yankees won’t have C.C. Sabathia in Game 1, but Andy Pettitte is a pretty good alternative. After all, the 40-year-old left-hander has started more postseason games than anyone. He allowed three runs over seven innings in a loss to the Orioles in Game 2 of the ALDS on Monday.
    • What will almost certainly command the most attention is the continuing saga of Alex Rodriguez. How much will he play? Joe Girardi opted to use Eric Chavez against Jason Hammel yesterday because of his numbers against right-handed pitching. Meanwhile, the Tigers’ projected rotation is full of right-handed starters. My guess is that A-Rod will start Game 1 tonight, but he could continue to sit in certain matchups.
    • Justin Verlander had a 5.57 ERA in eight career postseason starts before dominating the Athletics to the tune of a 0.56 ERA and 22 strikeouts over 16 innings during the ALDS. Is this finally his time to shine on the big stage?
    • If the Yankees get two starts out of CC Sabathia during this series, one of them will have to be on short rest. They can either use him on regular rest in Game 4, setting him up for a start on three days’ rest in a potential Game 7 or have him go on short rest in Game 3 and regular rest in a potential Game 7.
    • Will the Yankees offense show up? They managed to outlast the Orioles in the ALDS despite hitting just .211 as a team while scoring 16 runs in five games. Derek Jeter had more hits (eight) than Alex Rodriguez, Nick Swisher and Robinson Cano combined (six). It’s unrealistic to think that everyone will get hot at the same time, but this lineup is too talented to be this bad. Right?
    • Likewise, the Tigers held off the surprising Athletics in the ALDS without a ton of help from their big bats.Austin Jackson was 5-for-20 (.250) with seven strikeouts while Miguel Cabrera went 5-for-20 (.250) with two doubles and an RBI and Prince Fielder went 4-for-21 (.190) with one home run and two RBI. Their lineup isn’t nearly as deep or scary as the Yankees, so they need contributions from this important trio in order to advance.
    • Jose Valverde and Joaquin Benoit combined to give up five runs over 4 2/3 innings against the Athletics. Meanwhile, the Yankees bullpen held the Orioles to just one run over 11 1/3 innings for the entire series. The Tigers’ bullpen was a concern even before the ALDS, so you have to give the Yankees the edge in the late innings.

    No doubt that all games will feature driving rainstorms that they will play in for 3 innings, followed by a 2 hour delay for more rain, with games finishing around 3am EST

    I already stated that baseball is tied for 5th place with International Soccer in my book.

    Drying paint and growing grass can be more exciting to watch.




    But that was fun to watch the entire city of Washington D.C. suffer a most horrible demise last night. I love shit like that. :cheer:

    Mets Nation. We root for the Mets and whoever plays the Yankees.

    Here's my Facebook status update when Arod got benched yesterday:

    I'm guessing you never played any sports growing up.
