As one of the few Yankees fans on this board, I'd just like to say that I'm glad to be playing the Tigers. As much as Verlander scares me, he and CC will each probably only pitch once in this series. I think the Yankees and Tigers are clearly the two best teams in the AL, and whichever one of us wins, I pray we stomp on the hopes and dreams of whatever pathetic NL team faces us. It's been three years since an AL team won the World Series, and I'd like to stop this streak before it gets any worse.
I'm a diehard Yankees fan, glad to know i'm not the only one on our board. I'm also glad to be playing the Tigers. Should be a nice tune up for the World Series.
Where were you guys last year in the playoffs? I was the only Yankee fan here last year. It was a lonely place.
I grew up in a Yankees family, so this series has more incentive for me. Go Tigers, down with the Evil Empire East.
I am betting JV will pitch game 3 which will make him available for Game 7 if it goes that far.
Oh and the Yankees are going down. Tigers to the world series. Book it!
Another Yankees fan checking in.

Yankee fans should have been hoping for the A's. That lineup isn't gonna fair well against the Tiger's starting pitching now that they're healthy.
I disagree, I think the Yankees lineup will do just enough to win us the series. Average 4 runs/game. Right now with Pettite and Kuroda pitching well, Sabathia having been lights out for the past month and Hughes has shutdown potential each time he takes the mound, I don't think the Tigers will score many runs. The Yankees will do whatever they can to not let Cabrera beat them. Hopefully they keep everyone else off the bases for the opportunity to pitch around him.
If the Yankees pitch around Cabrera, Prince will make them pay. Prince has been killing the ball during the playoffs, but has been absolutely robbed on almost every at-bat.
Game 3 is going to be great.
Good Lord, all these Yankee fans come out of the wood work! Go Tigers beat the Yankees!
Good luck with that.
Tigers starters don't give up many HRs, and the Yankees lineup isn't good at manufacturing runs.
I'd take Fister, Scherzer, and Sanchez over Pettite, Hughes, and Kiroda all day. Not to mention Verlander over Sabathia.
Considering one side has a $27 million bench warmer, and the other has a guy that is dating Kate Upton...
Where were these Yankee fans last year? New year same result Tigers in 6.
Is a Detroit fan actually talking smack against the Yankees?
The last time the Detroit Tigers won a World Series title, the Berlin Wall was still intact.
Worst song ever "New York, New York" instant head ache. Never really played baseball, but Tiger Stadium is/was one of my favorite places, having attended several games with my Dad.
Tigers in 6.
Very well true, but last i checked we own NY in the postseason. Good luck should be a good series
The Tigers have just recently started spending money. With a closer to level playing field, I like what we have done with our money more than the Yanks.
Though I love Jeter. My brother played against him in high school. Class act then, class act now.
Thought this was about the Eagles beating the Lions this weekend.
all you yankee fans can suck it! I hate them so much! Go
