None of those Bulls games were blowouts or automatic wins, so I have no idea why you're including them in the discussion, and putting something in parenthesis doesn't make it any more factual.

Whether or not you "consider it a big deal" is irrelevant to the conversation.

The period between Dec. 29, 1963 and Jan. 26, 1986 was long and barren. I'm happy for your generation that you got to skip that.

Fine, we'll go back to the Bears.

But of course! The only thing that matters is that you think it "sucks" Tigers fans had a seven-inning party.

I know this site advertises itself for its pettiness, but I thought that was at least a little tongue-in-cheek. Life's too short to be so bitter about such trivial ****.

Peace out.

Its much more important to jump down my throat over a comment that somehow, although factually correct, you deem unworthy of discussion. Don't really care what your angle is, but there's quite a bit more "trivial ****" on the interwebz to whine about than one cherry picked comment about one of the worst AL pennant winners in the last 40 years.

Anybody else think that having the NLCS go to 7 games can hurt Detroit?

That's a long layover and could cool down the Tigers bats.

The 1992 Eastern Finals were in a 2-2-1-1-1 format.

I thought this myself. The 2007 Rockies won 21 out of 22 games sneaking into the playoffs and sweeping their way out of the first two rounds. Boston and Cleveland went 7 in the ALCS, and the Rockies had a 9 day layover before the World Series began. We know what happened then.

Yeah, I'll watch a replay of the debate, but don't know what to do w/ Bears and baseball!

Two of those events will be talked to death by the media over the next several days.

Watch baseball.

The Tigers are aware their 2006 team had a long wait for the Cardinals-Mets seven-game series to end. Many assumed that the Cardinals, who won only 83 games during the regular season, wouldn't do well against the Tigers, not just because they were drained from the NLCS, but because of the belief at the time of the superiority of the American League. The National League hadn't won a World Series game since 2003.

Verlander lost the first game. With his team down 3-1, Verlander lost Game 5. The dynamics of this World Series, though, would be different, if only because Leyland knows what went wrong in 2006. The Tigers are pretty much completely different. Verlander, I believe, is the only pitcher still with the team, and he has matured greatly. Infante may be the only position player, having just returned, and he didn't play a big role in the 2006 World Series. And I don't believe anyone seriously believes the Tigers have an edge simply because the American League is stronger

Well, we're 2 for 2 this year. I'm not sure how many times in the history of baseball it has occurred, but I cannot imagine a more fun experience than seeing your team win the pennant knowing they've got it wrapped up, at home, since the early innings of the game. That must be an incredible feeling.
