They are 70 MPH pitches down the middle in batting practice. It was cocky to say, especially when he failed to show up a couple games. Furthermore I'm sure he could jack 10/10 in batting practice if he really wanted to. Again, they are 70 MPH pitches down the middle, I would hope he can do that seeing how he is the best hitter in all of baseball. They might even be 60 MPH for all I know, figured 70 was a nice, round number


Get Real

It was very fun to watch, no doubt, I'll agree all day with that. Not hear though. Keep your mouth shut, take care of your business and you'll do fine. You ever hear any Red Wings opening up their mouth?

Didn't think so - Go aboot your business

I wasn't upset with Cruz taunting Verlander, Cabrera started it. It's not like Verlander did anything out-of-the-ordinary special in the playoffs anyways. Once in a lifetime regular season, meh post season.

I fear the backlash

I never even heard of Cabby saying anything but let me get this straight. You're upset that Cabby said something during batting practice when Cabrera has always been a light hearted guy who jokes around at all times but you're cool with Cruz taunting our pitcher in the middle of an LCS? You're sure you're a Tigers fan?

A crappy way to go out, for sure. Despite that, though, this team was a great time. Like GoWings said, it was a close series that could have easily been 3-2 Tigers headed back to Texas. I'm not ashamed to say that the Tigers lost to the best team in the American League and I'm proud of them for getting where they did.

Let the off-season begin. Illitch is talking about big free agent signings and the Tigers have some obvious holes to fill, but are still in a really good spot to do it all again next year.

Yea, a great season despite the disappointing end. If you told me at the beginining of the season we would have made it to game 6 in the ALCS I would have been super happy with that. That means we did a lot of good things to get there and we did.

Illitch has said he is looking to add another big bat during the off season. I have no idea who that could be but my guess is maybe a 2nd or 3rd baseman. That's about the only hole we need to fill once Boesch comes back and now that we have Young. We'll see though, it was a good season none the less. Now time for the Lions and Wings to give this city something to cheer about.

I am so pumped for this game. I'm also pretty nervous but I will still enjoy this game win or lose like I have all year. It's been a great season. I'm not ready to stop watching baseball just yet so hopefully the Tigers cam pull a win out here somehow and force a game 7.

Scherzer has got to keep the ball down or else the Rangers are going to smack him all over that park. If he does that, our hitters will put up their share of runs. Let's do this.

Tonight's forward lines:


Eaves and Brunnstrom out.


This is different from the OP lines. (Eaves in for Homer) but if these are correct, I find it odd that Eaves isn't playing on a regular basis. Even if they have had two pretty good games as a team. I'm also anxious to see when Brunnstrom gets his first regular season start as well. I hope it's on Saturday.

The TIgers, probably.

Yea that's definitely the reason. It's not every year these two teams play at the same time in October.

What a game these past two have been! We should be able to light up A.J. tomorrow but you never know in the post season.

Pavel Datsyuk smells. Joe Thornton has many leather bound books. Go Sharks.

I feel more sorry for people who are continually trying to spread their own misery onto others here.

Maybe not everyone lives and dies by the result of what ultimately is a kids game. Maybe families and friends still use sporting events as a bonding experience in a building that is considered hollowed ground by most fans. Maybe people will continue to support a team despite what others view as a 'futile event' and make it a supportive send off for a team/organization that's shown Detroit 20 years of outstanding hockey. Maybe there are still some classy fans out there.


What do you expect from someone with a username Grim...?

The Red Wings have a 1.8% chance of winning the series vs the Sharks. This is what Lloyd Christmas has to say about that.

Wings take next two on home ice. Sharks s*** their pants, lose next on home ice, then get eliminated back at the Joe. Wings in 6.
