Games We Play
Man... AJax looks like he's gonna be a stud. I read a number of scouting reports on him, and while they thought he was talented, nobody expected this kind of production.
I afraid he's one that got away.
Trout would NEVER have done that.
 I'm here. puttering about the house though.
I just want someone to tell me who to root for.
Damn. near collision.
 Really? You think we have a better chance again the Tiggers? Why?
 No, it's just that if the Yankees lose in the LDC or LCS, the Tigers are my back up.
One of the announcers sounds like Lou Pinella on queludes
I'm dreading who gets the Yankee games.
Orsillo is a great announcer. Buck Martinez is actually good, but his voice is all gravel, which is not appealing.
However... Orsillo has the great voice, but was never a ball player. Buck was a Catcher and knows the game. It would be nice if they had a 3rd guy, like a Cone, who was all baseball experience and accumen.
Is Boomer not available, or is he part of another crew?
That was close.
I think we should be rooting for the Tigers to win in five.
Oakland is a much better team. The Tigers can thrown Justin Verlander at you, but if he goes twice in the ALCS, I think that makes them much weaker than the A's.
Just turned on the Reds game thinking I was in a time warp seeing them in the Playoffs. And Cueto hurts himself delivering a pitch in the 1st inning after getting 1 out. What a FUCKING DISASTER. Man that sucks!
 We see Verlander twice in any event.
As magic as Oakland has been, the Tigers are a stronger team.
I'm rooting for Oakland.
 I'd love to see the Yankees beat Detroit after losing to them in 06 and 11. But need to beat the stinkin' O's first and foremost.
Buck Showalter is the Bill Belichick of baseball. "cept he hasn't won shit!
 But if he goes first, we could see him in three games.
Oakland outscored opponents by 99 runs, Detroit by 44. That's not magic! The A's are very good.
