After all those seasons when Uncle Bud told the free world that they couldn't have two teams from the same division playing each other in the LDS's...

Well, apparently the infield fly rule now includes a ball hit into left field. I can't even grasp how you can possibly make that call there.

Shame on the Braves fans though. That's not the answer and it's embarrassing to witness a scene like that result.

Boston is going to pay this guy 150 to strike out 250+

Tonight was a shock, I really can't believe how things unfolded. It was an embarrassing call but an even more embarrassing display by the home fans.

I am a fan of the Braves, and it sucks that this important of a game was potentially decided by a call like that, and Chipper's last game memories will have shades of bottles and cups being thrown on the field.

But they will get half of an MVP season out of him. I'd think they learned their lesson with Carl Crawford and decide to pass on Hamilton.

Good job by all the umps in both games; at least they were memorable. Uncle Bud must be so proud.
Josh Hamilton:
A) relapse or
B) injury?
I'll choose "A".

Can't believe Texas is gone already. Their pitching is pretty mediocre, but that lineup is loaded. They were the last AL team I wanted the Tigers to see just because I think the matchup is a very poor one. Thought the Rangers were going to cruise through the AL and back to the World Series. What a great story the Orioles are. The A's too, but I feel like that script should end on a bad note.

I like the Tigers in four, Orioles in five, Cardinals in four and Giants in five in the divisional series. Not sure why, but I now feel really good about the Tigers chances to get to the World Series. I probably shouldn't be overly confident given some of the flaws we witnessed for most of the regular season. However, pitching wins this time of year and the Tigers starting rotation is excellent.

Giants/Tigers in the fall classic, though I do see the Giants winning it all.

Porcello, Smyly, Worth, Kelly all make the playoff roster of the borderline decisions. Boesch, Villarreal and Downs left off. Only one I don't really like is Porcello over Downs (Oakland has a lot of lefties), but I get wanting to have a fifth starter just in case. Thrilled Boesch isn't around -- he's useless at the plate and terrible in the field.

Tigers lineup for Game 1: Jackson 8, Berry 7, MVP 5, Fielder 3, Young DH, Dirks 9, Peralta 6, Avila 2, Infante 4 and JV starting

Getting excited now. Let's Go Tigers!

Anyone know a good streaming place online to watch the game at? I don't have cable and have to stay at home with my daughter. :(

Probably should have figured half the board on here is at the game. My bad.

I agree with GoWings, I feel really good about our chances this year. Last year being in the playoffs felt like a gift, but I think this team is built to go deep. Power arms, power bats - and if Avila can heat up that would help us tremendously. As little as I enjoy Elmon Young, I appreciate the clutch hitting he showed last year and am hoping to see some of the same out of him this postseason, but we'll see.

Great win last night, it's really important for the Tigers to take both of these games at home. Starting at home is a gift for a team without home field advantage, so it's paramount that they make the most out of it - especially because the Coliseum is going to be nuts.

It was really nice to see them grind out a tough win, too, because that's what they're going to have to do night after night to go far in the playoffs. (duh)

How many Nationals know or even care about the origins of their team?

Crazy game. Please, Leyland don't ever put Phil Coke on the mound in the 9th of a tie game.

October baseball: Don Kelly is the hero in a playoff game. Very happy for him -- seems like an awesome person and quite the team player. Watched him play in Toledo a little more than a month ago.

Tigers up 2-0 heading to Oakland! What a game.

Crazy game. Please, Leyland don't ever put Phil Coke on the mound in the 9th of a tie game.


No kidding. Didn't like the move to bunt Dirks at all either. Hate to complain after a win like that, but wasn't a very well managed game by Leyland.

Anything else Josh Reddick would like to whine about in this series? The strike zone in Game 1, Al-Al's baseball kiss today. Maybe he should be more concerned with his 6 K's in 7 AB's so far.

Yeah, I doubt I'd be crazy about 'The Kiss' if the tables were turned, but it really isn't that big of a deal. Al-Al said he got caught up in the moment, which I think you'd assume. Even the announcers on MLB Network were laughing about it. If anyone really thought he was trying to show off, he'd be getting lambasted right now.

Great win, great job by Don Kelly - the Wizard! Really happy to be going to Oakland up 2 games to none. Could prove extremely valuable. The Coliseum is a tough place to play.
