  2. Magnum PI was a Tiger's fan. Maybe I will be one too - since the Rangers blew it.

    4. If you google Magnum pi - images, you can see him wearing the blue hat with the D in most pictures.

  3. They probably won't get past the NL team. Just lucky the Yankees decided to take the past week off.

    I just have a hard time accepting a team in a city that is tanking hard, has no money, has signs outside it that say enter at your own risk - posted by the police department.

    1. Sounds like you have less of a problem with the Tigers and more with Detroit.

    2. Well, you know, our pitching shut the A's down pretty good, too. And they'd just finished sweeping out the Rangers before we got to 'em. . .

      And, yes, the obligatory cheap-shot kick-em-when-they're-down Detroit joke. What a clever guy. And Anonymous, too!

  4. The Tiggers have had absolutely amazing pitching. If they can keep that up, they'll beat anybody.

  6. I have a hat that looks like that. I may have to find it. It's packed away in a box somewhere in the garage.

  7. Anybody but the stinking Cards...the NL version of the Yankess, finish 9 games out, but all of a sudden there are two Wild Card teams, and St. Louis jumps in...DAMN REDS!

  8. Unless Skip's Giants pull another three-game miracle outta their hats, it looks like my Tigers are gonna get a rematch of '06 (and '68, and '34). . .

    The pitching just kinda came together at the end of the season. I'm sure there have been other teams that just pitched like nobody's business in the post-season (the '10 Giants? the '63 Dodgers?), but it sure is fun to watch. Around these parts, we just expect Verlander is always gonna pitch a no-hitter, and the first hit off him is a bit of a disappointment. . .

    And it's starting to look like the bats might be coming around a bit, too. . .

    1. There's a limit to the availability o' miracles, methinks. Looks like a rematch to me, hopefully with a better outcome than the last time.

  9. Sorry I'm late here. The tigers are sitting in the catbird seat for now and I think they'll be ready for either the Giants or the CArds. Man, I'm really starting to not like the Cards... seems like they're there year in and year out. Meanwhile, back in Chicago...Well, just wait till next year. As for their hats, the Tigers have one of,if not the classiest hat in baseball. I used to have one too, back a few years ago. And since I'm old school, the brim had a nice curve to it, none of that flat shelf style you see some guys wear today.

    1. Agreed on the "classiest hat in baseball" thought, Dan. I wish I knew what happened to mine.

Just be polite... that's all I ask.
