Gene Lamont (3rd base coach) is known to make bonehead decisions. He has cost the Tigers more runs this year than that. For some reason he always wants to send the big guys on the team home, and hold a faster player when he could have scored. The same goes for waving a player to 3rd when they should have stopped at 2nd. When you watch a play develop that involves Lamont having to make a decision you know it isn't going to turn out well. The second thing is that Fielder doesn't know how to slide. I've seen him slide too soon and come up short of the bag, and slide so late he rolls past the bag and gets tagged out. The slide last night was horrible, feet in the air and his backside to the catcher.

Yeh, you don't send a very questionable runner in a 0-0 game that early. Maybe down by 3 or 4 in the middle innings, you take that chance. Early scores set the mode of the game and you gotta be certain. Lead off batter in that situation you send him. Guy who runs a 7 second 40....?

Tigers need to learn how to score. They're swinging at bad pitches and letting good ones go by. I will say that Posey was zoning the ball like a fiend tonight and the umps called a few bad strikes, but they really have no excuse. I wish someone would step up and be a leader and fire them up. In the meantime, I'm off to drown my sorrows

Chin up dudius, the whole season has been a "what the hell" to me. When they go into the "funk" of not hitting. I usually start the game by saying, well at least get a hit, once they get a hit, then I hope they get a run. It's been this way all year. But the Tigers have won 4 in a row before. Maybe it's time to become the 1st team to come back from 0-3.

^Hence why I'm not tempting fate and wishing Detroit good luck tomorrow.

Regardless of what happens, Vogey has been such a great story and such a great comeback in the last 2 years, and I'm proud to have him as a Giant. *sniff*

We'll see what happens. I took it with the same attitude last night. Just gets frustrating to see the team fall apart the way they do. The Giants, on the other hand, have showed unity and they've played smart baseball. Detroit has it in them to play just as well or better. They just gotta play this "must-win" baseball they keep talking about.

I'm very glad to see Scherzer is on the mound today, and hopefully he'll get some run support.

Whatta pitiful performance by the Tigers. All 'round, every game, sad. Princess completely choked on the big stage, as did Valverde. Cabrera was a joke too, as was Verlander in game one. And WTF was Leyland thinking pinch hitting a scrub who hadn't had an at-bat all post season? I get the lefty/righty match up, but this jackass hit .186 in the regular season and didn't stand a chance against a big league closer. I guess it starts at the top, when a droopy dog manager gives up and stops caring, so goes the team. Sad. Don't get me wrong, I was pulling for SF, but it would've been nice to see the other team at least make it an exciting series.

I think the tigers gave a fight last night but you're right about choking. The big hitters still weren't making enough contact and were swinging at bad pitches. I'm disappointed they didn't win, but SF played better than them in every game. Here's hoping that next year the team can learn to be more unified and maybe they can make it to another Fall Classic and prove the world they can win a damn game.

Yeah, last night they played well until the 10th, when Romo struck out the side easily. I was hoping they'd extend the series another game or two, it's always bittersweet to see the season end. It was surprising to see how poorly Detroit played after handling the Yanks so easily.... it's almost like the Tigers absorbed the souls of their ALCS enemies, which made them play just like the Yankees in the WS.

This is awesome, I think Posey is bringing a dynasty about.
