Grew up outside Detroit and lived in NYC fpr five years. Only thing I hate more than the Yanks are Giants and Jets.
I am pulling for the Tigers but you won't get complete games from the starters every day and the bullpen is really iffy.
Also, the Yankees fans better have some connection to New York or else it's a bit embarrassing.
Moved to NY when I was 4, lived there for the next 17 years. No fair-weather fan here.
Tigers up 2-0 in the series.
11 National Titles | 42 Conference Titles | 3 Heisman Winners | 78 All-Americans | 37 College Hall of Fame Members
Verlander on the mound in game 3.
Stole at least one run from NY in game 1 and in game 2 they gave Detroit an extra 2

It's not like the Yankees only had 4 hits, and scored no runs today.
Doesn't matter, the Yankees didn't score a run anyway and the Tigers were already up 1-0 by the time the bad call happened.
As for game 1, the Tigers received a couple calls, but the Yankees had the strike zone for both games and there was a foul ball that was called fair for the Yankees in game 1.
Literally twice in the second inning Kuroda struck out a hitter while only throwing one strike.
What's the series format, 2-3-2 or 2-2-1-1-1 like in hockey?
Alright, would definitely want to close it out in the D then.
Honestly, I wrote off the series as a loss as soon as Jeter went down. Considering Jeter and Ibanez have been the only consistent hitters this entire postseason, losing half of that hurts like hell. On top of that, the psychological effect of losing the captain when the team already entered the playoffs on a downslide is just going to kill the team. They've been playing without any life or heart, and they're not about to turn that around without Jeter.
sounds like sour grapes to me
how bout the tigers are just better. jeter or no jeter. are pitching is too dominant.
Yankees bats are as hot as Lindsay lohans acting career
rule number 76: no excuses, play like a champion
Dude. Come on. What the hell is the point of this post? Do you really need to be a dick and kick me while I'm already down?
I'm not trying to make excuses for losing. The Yankees hitters have been absolutely beyond miserable. The Tigers pitching (with the exception of Valverde) has been excellent. However, if you don't think that losing Jeter has a massively significant psychological effect on the rest of the team, you don't know baseball, and you certainly don't know the Yankees.
Yea that was a killer for the Yankees, I figured they were done when that happened.
But it's not like the Tigers haven't overcome a ton of adversity. They watch their closer give up a 4 run lead in the bottom of the ninth, but come back out and find a way to win the game in extras. That should've been a psychological kill-shot to the Tigers as well. Then Kuroda had a perfect game going against the Tigers for 5+ innings but were still able to scrape together 1 run (legitimately, which is all they needed).
This has been a really tough series, the Tigers have just been able to overcome adversity better than the Yanks so far.
no excuses. you make it like they are going to lose cause of jeter. our pitching is just killing the yankees and having jeter wouldnt change anything. dont give me that captain bull. just cause you see them talking about it on sportcenter doesnt mean it's true. having jeter wouldnt change anything. You think because jeter is out it is causing your batters not to get hits. psychological effect? get real.
sweep, now time to take the world series GO TIGERS!!
Aww, you asshole, you just had to bump this thread, didn't you?
