That's right. Thud! That was the sound of the Yankees falling back to earth as my preceding post's prediction came true in spades. 6-0 Tigers steamroll over the Yankees. RJ pitched an ineffective five and two thirds innings as the Tigers rolled with Kenny Rogers' superb 7 plus innings of 5 hit shutout ball. The bullpen took care of business to quickly end it after that and the Yankees face elimination this afternoon as they hand the ball to Jared Wright to save them from an early and embarassing exit from post-season play. How sweet would that be? I have the answer....SWEET! Jeremy Bonderman goes for the felines.
In other baseball news, Oakland concluded their massacre of the Twins and await the victor of the Detroit-New York series, a team that might be known as early as today. And St. Louis and the Mets, both up 2-0, can advance to the NLCS with victories today. But all eyes in THIS household will be tuned to FoxHD at 4:30 where tens of thousands of crazed Detroit fans will let their team know how much they love them. Same here. Big time.
