Hiroki Kuroda (5-1, 2.87) vs. Rick Porcello (3-4, 5.93)
You, helped us take first place, whoa
Got us back into the race, whoa
Watching D-Train make pitches wild
Gallaraga was so out-styled
Is Porcello mild?
We don't want to seem bad hosts, whoa
Not like we're trying to boast, whoa
But today is our chance to sweep
And make David Eckstein weep
Oh! Our hearts would leap
Don't the Tigers seem so tame
(Breaks they can't catch)
This 80's song is so lame
(These words are a stretch)
Get it? It's from Canadian heartthrob group Glass Tiger! Tiger! Made of glass! Like our fragile opponent! So enjoy the video, especially watching the lead singer's body overenunciate the beat like Steve Martin in The Jerk (or a guy having a seizure).
Oh, and let's win one today, boys, and get the sweep!
