    JV sets a new record of pitching 30 scoreless innings
    versus one team in the post season.

    Great posts folks !
    Enjoy it before the BoSox club us to death!

    Yeah, Leyland with the I wouldn't do that to my reliever [if Verlander couldn't finish the 9th and possibly leave in a jam]. It seems he's more concerned about the player being comfortable than winning a big game.

    I think I remember M.Lolich going 11 inning to get a win. They tied it up in the 9th and he had to come back. The game went on to the next day !

    Maybe the two ends are not mutually exclusive.

    I think part of it was that the way that Verlander was slowing down made Leyland assume that he was probably going to surrender some baserunners. He wanted to give JV some rationale out of respect and that did the trick.

    I was a little surprised in the interview after the game how Verlander said he was just fine with the decision. You could tell he was sincere.

    Over the last few months, there were a lot of Verlander doubters (Nemo, Dre, Gazzoo, etc.). I told you all that JV is a stud and he would be just fine.

    According to publised reports, Phil Coke has been activated for the ALCS.....we are floating with disaster here.

    I know we have worn out Smiley, but if Coke gets up and starts warming up, he will surely come in ruin something good or make it worst....:gaah:

    Gotta lay off the Coke for sure.

    Porcello has only had one appearance and he's fairly electric when he's on. Also, can takeover a game in the 6th or 7th and pitch to the end in rhythm. Not much use from Veras yet either.

    Coke is there for one reason, to pitch to a left-handed batter, nothing else. Problem is Boston has
    a boat-load of them and he might have to pitch to several in succession. Not good!

    If our starters can go 7, we dont have to worry about Coke. If Coke comes in its cuz we are losing by 5 runs or more anyway.

    Tigers rotation is now basically 7 innings from starters, Alberquerque, Smyly, Porcello and Benoit. Anyone else pitches and its bcuz of a house fire.

    Veras does have a 3.02 ERA this year in 62.2 innings. I would have expected him to get a little more action.

    Overall, our bullpen has not been a liability at all in the post season this year. Benoit's last appearance felt very shaky, but it was just 1 hit and a hit batsmen (with a 2 strike count). That last fly ball scared the crap out of me off the bat though as it looked like a possible out of the stadium home run. I was extremely relieved to see him quickly point up to the sky and start dancing around.

    While we are talking about our judgments of Verlander, it seems to me that someone on this board predicted at the All-Star break 18 wins for him at the end of the regular season.

    That's 3.2 innings... micro sample. He only allowed 2 runs in one of those appearances and 0 runs in the other 7.
