    Are you suggesting that JV's lights-out pitching has some sort of hypnotic effect on Tiger hitters?

    I'm concerned that in that last game that with a runner on 3rd with one out, we weren't able to get a run across the plate.
    Seemed to me that Fielder and Cabrera...two excellent hitters...had two terrible at bats when we needed them the most.
    Their strike-outs just didn't make sense to me. The pitches they swung at...shouldn't have been fooled.

    True-dat Neems.
    Tiger bats need some mojo.
    Need to get a witch doctor or a rally monkey or something.
    Maybe someone needs to take one for the team and get with a "slump buster".

    No research needed. That sounds about right.

    I predicted, most ignorantly, that there was no way Bosox could beat Scherzer and Verlander 4 times in 7 games ,,,
    they already got 2 wins in the books...
    Next: Fister, Sanchez, Scherzer and Verlander

    I HAVE to believe we can beat them 3-1 with this rotation BUT the previous 3 games were the 3 greatest starts IN BASEBALL HISTORY!!!!!!!!!and we lost TWO OF THEM!!!!

    I believe BOSTON STRONG is in the air and the spirit of the Boston Marathon is on this RedSox team.....

    rats...

    For you guys complaining about our offense going cold, consider the following... here are the stats for both teams in the ALCS so far:

    Tigers: .225 batting average. .295 OBP. .353 SLG. .648 OPS. 6 runs on 23 hits. o stolen bases. Committed 2 errors.
    Sox: .133 batting average. .228 OBP. .222 SLG. .450 OPS. 7 runs on 12 hits. 2 stolen bases. Committed 2 errors.

    We are out hitting them in this epic battle of pitchers. Just needed a little more luck on the timing of our hits at they are more spread out and theirs were bunched in game 2 against our bullpen.

    I think the big difference is the Sox have been slightly more clutch.

    1 really clutch swing for sure from Ortiz. The rest has pretty much been record setting whiffs.

    There is a 1 run difference between the teams after 3 games. It's been as close as possible and 1 swing is the difference between 1-2 and 2-1. Stats aren't failing us here, they are just indicating that we haven't benefited from the timing of our hits as much as Boston has. There are pure fluctuations that occur in sports, which is what makes them maddening... which is why they play the game, etc

    Fielder looks awful up there. Maybe he should be batting ninth. No HRs or RBI so far in the postseason.
