ALDS Game 5 Thread: Tigers @ Yankees, 5p

The Yankees may be the favorite, but the Tigers are the favorite underdog.

Doug Fister (0-1, 11.57) vs. Ivan Nova (1-0, 2.84).

Let's hear it for three LDS Game Fives! The first of the three is played this evening, with two AL powerhouses starting...a pitcher who began the year with the Mariners versus a rookie who spent part of the year at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre? Let's hear it for competitive balance!

Sorry to get all off-topic, but did y'all see the Tim Lincecum lawsuit?

Good read, click here, and be sure to see the complaint at the bottom of the article

It's just ridiculous if a team can win with Posada and Martin in the lineup....

Day old reply, but yes, Sax. That Ten. Melanie Walker.

STOOPID YANKEE FAN SAX

Josh S. said...

Good ol' JMart.

Steve Sax said...

Mid7, tigers up 3-1.

They're going to lose.

Dusty Baker said...

Scherzer is MDIL's favorite non-Dodger pitcher. She is obsessed with his eye color(s).

He will be my personal jesus if he can get these Yankmes out and get out with a Detroit win.

Dusty Baker said...

Here comes the meltdown.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

If A-Rod hits a grand slam, I will...

do something bizarre.

Dusty Baker said...

Back to feelings of normalcy, Marla.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Too late.

Dusty Baker said...

Sittdown, Douche! Russell Martin just plain pisses me off now. He's looked awful at the plate, which doesn't piss me off.

Dusty Baker said...

3 outs for Valverde and the Tigers can advance. Squeaky bum time!

Dusty Baker said...

I think Jeter is coming on to pitch hit for Jeter.

Dusty Baker said...

Yankmes down to final out. Sure wish it were Russell Martin who was going to make it.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Sax's team loses!

el montanero said...

HUZZAH!

Dusty Baker said...

Well, that didn't suck.

Josh S. said...

Make party!

Dusty Baker said...

(makes party)

Dusty Baker said...

(makes love, not war)

Steve Sax said...

Tigers!

Thank you for proving me wrong!!!

Pull up a chair, Yankees--come watch the playoffs with us

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

I always thought valverde sucked a lot more than he really does. Guess he doesnt suck that bad.

Im just glad the yanks are done, Russell Martin can take his sorry ass back to Canada for the winter..

Dusty Baker said...

Exactly, DBT.

Will Yankmes re-sign Martin? He sure stank to high heaven in a lot of ABs this post season (short as it was for the team - hah!).

Dusty Baker said...

We need a YSPGT.

Orel said...

Montero has to be the Yankees' starting catcher next year, right? Does Martin re-sign as a backup? Doubt it.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Martin's nothing more than a stopgap between Posada and Montero.

Dusty Baker said...

Agree with last two comments.

DodgersKings323 said...

Love how the announcers babbled about the Yanks the whole time, until that other team actually advanced, also they should have had Montero in there, LOL
