Great "TEAM" but i think too many young players and not enough power in the lineup to make it far this year, now next year especially if they pick up a premier bat in the offseason this team is gonna be scary. Maven (who the Nationals wanted for Soriano) i truelly believe he is gonna be something very special once he gets the big league call.

The best Tiger is Leyland, barr none. They also have an excellent starting staff and that is key. The tigers also have the most underrated shortstop in the entire mlb, Carlos Guillen. I like their team quite a bit.

Gràcies Pare, descansi en pau.

LOL Who is gonna match our intensity

Damon-Jeter

As soon as that is done they'll be a guy on third and fist with no outs

Then Abreu he walks

Loads the bases

Arod comes up with the bases loaded

Strikes out

Then Giambi will walk home a run

Then Sheffield will whack a double down the right field line and all 3 will score

Then finally Matsui will single, Sheff to 2nd
And then Posada will ground into a double play

Prototypical Yankee way

I always had sympathies for the Tigers, they are my favorite AL team so its good to see them do well but come playoff time, they don't have much experience

Other than Verlander I see no capable person on that staff. And by capable I don't mean world class or excellent. I mean "can hold your own".

I was also thinking. Their closer is awful. His ERA is in the high 4 or 5.

Yet he has the most saves. He also has a high WHIP and ER+.

What this means, he'll fail when it counts the most.

A bit exagerated, imo. Are you telling me that you don't like Bonderman? The guy has been great this year. Nate Robertson has been good, much better than the average starter and Kenny Rogers, although super inconsistent, is a decent starter. The Tiges lost quite a bit with the loss of Maroth. Also, their middle relief might be the best in the majors, walker, Zumaya, Rodney, are excellent. The problem is Todd Jones, very inconsistent at best.

Gràcies Pare, descansi en pau.

Barca great point on the middle relief. As for thepitchers, I'll give you Kenny Rogers. That's all. 2 capable on their staff. In the Yanks staff I see Wang and Moose as capable.

Randy is getting there slowly. And we'll see what Lidle has.

I love Bonderman as well, underrated. Maroth was excellent as well, a big blow his injury.

The Yankees biggest problem is their middle relief, imo.

Al Capone, I can tell that you are scared my friend. Its as if you and the Wankees are intimidated by the most premium team from the Motor City in years. The Yankees have an owner who is wealthier than all others. You bronx bombers laughed at the Tigers when they ended the season with 103 losses whereas I a Bostonian who didnt have a favorite team at the time felt pity for them. Now Detroits the hottest team in baseball. You the bronx bomber feel scared and I the Bostonian am proud to say that didn't laugh at them. Now I am so pleased with the premium players and management in Detroit that I decided to give them my unwithering support. So yeah Tigers > Yankees. See you in October, if you make it. BITCH!

Not true. I would bet that Michael Ilitch is worth more money.

Come on, everyone both laughed and felt pity for them. They were beyond terrible that season, the turn around came with the hiring of Rodriguez,

Not this past month, but then again, their winning rate was almost impossible to maintain. Their July was good but not the hottest.

I do think that the Tigers have an advanatge due to their pitching, that is if the game doesn't come to Jones.

I never laughed at them and when I said they were the hottest team I was referring to their record.
